Half Review: Never For Nothing

I started this review, but never really finished it.  Since I haven't posted in a while, I thought I'd just go ahead and post what I have.  I just changed it a little bit. Enjoy! :)

Does anybody else think it’s really annoying how Mr. Whittaker presses an issue until somebody does what he wants?  Let me clarify.  For example, in this episode, Whit nearly forces Matthew to go to the half-way house with him.  I mean, really, what is Matthew supposed to say?  He needs to say: “NO!  I DON’T WANT TO GO TO THE HALF-WAY HOUSE OR THE ORPHANAGE OR THE POOR VILLAGE SO WE CAN PASS OUT PRESENTS OR THE DRUG REHAB CENTER OR ANYWHERE ELSE!  NOW PLEASE STOP ASKING!!!  HAS IT EVER OCCURRED TO YOU THAT THERE ARE THINGS THAT WE HAVE TO DO TOO??!!!” in a nicer more respectful way.  :)  Everybody just listens to Whit and follows him around, doing whatever he wants.  It’s really annoying.

Anyway, ignoring that aspect, a few corny jokes, and several obnoxious characters (such as Olivia and her Grandma) this story was pretty good.  The Spanish characters were awesome and funny.  Especially Juan and Esperanza’s cousin.  And they had cool accents too. :)

Another thing I noticed is that the episode seemed more mature than usual, with Esperanza dying.  Of course, with what kids watch on TV and in the movies today, an accidental death in an audio drama is pretty mild.

Move That Bus and Let's Have a Concert! - A Review of "Wooton Knows Best"

All in all "Wooton Knows Best" is a great episode.  It's very funny and teaches a good lesson.  Wooton brings the humor of course.  I loved how he was telling his story to Whit but trying to do it in a way that would be non-scary.

Since I like music, I thought it was cool that they included Melissa Ciphers in the story although I'm sure she doesn't sing the kind of music I listen to.  It was pretty stupid how they had her at the end singing just for Olivia.  Pleease, a dose of realism.  Do you think that they would have brought Joe Ciphers if Olivia won the contest?

Of course Olivia was obnoxious (as usual) but it didn't ruin the story.  Especially since Matthew got to go to camp.  That made me happy.  :)  I love it when the boys win.  It shows that the world hasn't gone completely crazy.  (No offense girls)  ;)

Humor: Excellent
Plot: Very Good
"Stupid" Content: Little
Character Selection: Pretty Good
Rating: 4.5/5 stars

Just to let everybody know, I am planning on doing reviews of the new episodes.  I've started on a couple, but it might be a little while before I release the first one.  I'll just say that #54 has some good episodes!

Nothing in Particular

I thought I'd do a post since I haven't done one in a while.  But I don't really have anything exciting to say, so...

Anyway, #54 is out.  Can't wait to hear it, it should be getting here in a week or so, right in time for my brother's birthday.  I don't like the idea of him owning the new Odyssey's.  But they're too expensive, and I'm really into Southern Gospel music more right now.  As long as I get to hear it I suppose it doesn't matter.

The new cover repacks are really cool, and there's some awesome information out for upcoming albums.  There's a writer's contest which is neat too.  Go to Odyssey Scoop.  They have more info on all this stuff.  Anyway for now, goodbye amigos.  (I don't know the Spanish word for "goodbye."  Isn't that sad?)

Listen to New Half-Episode!

You can listen to half of the episode "Wooton Knows Best" from the upcoming album #54.  I'm listening to it now, so I can't write a review at this point... ;)  Listen now!
