I'm Back!!

Yes, I'm back.

Sorry I kept all of you in the dark this last week. I was actually debating whether or not to even continue this blog. I have a whole lot of school, and we moved to a bigger house, so I have weekly cleaning duties. We're trying to grow grass, so I have that too. And I just don't feel like I have the time to do this. But my dad suggested that I just do things differently than I have in the past. Instead of checking the news every day and commenting about everything, I will be posting short, non-exhaustive reviews of episodes as they come out. I may occasionally do some news, but I won't be around very much to see news. I know this might disappoint some of you, especially Marvin, but hopefully you can understand.

So, here's my short, non-exhaustive review of The Mystery of the Clocktower Parts I and II:

I liked this episode quite a bit, and it was very entertaining. At the beginning of the second part, when they introduced the character of Andrew, I predicted in my head, and to my siblings that he was the guy behind the whole thing. I was partly joking, but I also thought that they wouldn't have put him in there if he didn't play some part in the story. As the episode progressed, I continued to be more and more sure of my prediction.

The ultimate story behind 11:45 was a bit mature for an Odyssey episode, but I guess we can deal with it. At least it wasn't as bad as When You're Right, You're Right.

I really enjoyed the surprise ending, and wasn't really expecting it. I agreed with Whit when he said that everything had seemed to come together too easily, but I didn't know what it would lead to.

And on a personal note, I would never, ever trust a company called "Dreadlocks". Just saying.

Overall it was a great action/adventure episode with a pretty good moral: "Be sure your sin will find you out", as Matthew says.

You can for sure expect a review next week and please comment!

@ Marvin: Thank you for the package in the mail. My parents gave it to me for my birthday. And thanks for your comments even though you knew I wouldn't see them for a while. I'm going to try to send you something in the mail too!


  1. *runs around madly without saying anything, after hitting his head because he jumped up* Welcome back, Christian! :D I've been waiting a looong time for you to return, ever since last week. But, better for you to arrive now then never. *cheers*

  2. Yay! Totally cool! I'm so glad that you're back! :) That's okay that you won't be able to blog as much; we're just glad you're here. :D

  3. It's great to hear from you again!

  4. Thanks everyone. I don't know why I ever thought about stopping the blog. : D

  5. Good thing you aren't quitting this blog! Enough people are leaving already.

  6. Who did I miss? Did someone leave while I was gone?!

  7. Yeah. Well, Audrey isn't exactly around anymore. :-/ Read her last few blog posts. :)

  8. Hey! I know I'm late (sorry!) but here's another resounding "WELCOME BAAAAAAAAAAAACK!!!" :D

  9. Hi, The Other Alice! Thank you! I'm glad to be back.

    @ Marvin: That's sad. Although I did see that she had a new post up just the other day.

  10. HOORAY!!! WELCOME BACK!!! I am glad you didn't quit the blog! :D

    I have a lot of work, too. Has been that way for the past 2 years! But what I found very helpful was this Scripture: "Be anxious for nothing, but in everything bu prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard you hearts and minds through Christ Jesus." --Philippians 4:6-7

    Just thought I should tell you that. :) God bless!
