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!
