Circle Two

I actually liked this episode quite a bit. It had its problems, as others have, but for the most part it was really good.

A couple of minutes into the show I was sure that this was the long-awaited fourth Kidsboro episode because of the presence of Ryan, Pete, and Nelson. Since the three of them said that they were thinking about letting Matthew into their secret club, I thought for sure that it would turn out to be Kidsboro. But then I turned out to be wrong. And I just looked over the episode summaries for the rest of the season and saw that there isn't another episode that might be a Kidsboro one. I must have missed something over the summer because I thought that we'd been told that a new Kidsboro episode was coming.

One thing that I thought was weird about the secret club was that Ryan and Pete never seemed to be as geeky as Nelson in regards to wanting to know how things work. It was weird that the three of them started this other club seperate from Kidsboro.

I think Emily Jones is growing on me. I'm getting a little more used to her voice, and I guess I look forward to the upcoming episode featuring the Jones and Parker Detective Agency. However, I am glad that she wasn't the narrator this time. ; )

Oh, and to all you fans who speculated in Album 51 about a relationship between Matthew and Emily beyond being mystery-solving partners, your theories were thwarted when we heard that Matthew had told Emily about his secret crush, thus disproving the conjecture that he has a crush on her. Though she may actually still have a crush on him as shown by her exhaustive attempts to make sure that he wasn't getting into trouble.

The episode had a great moral that we haven't heard from in Odyssey since Sounds Like a Mystery or The One About Trust, whichever came last. I was glad when Matthew didn't let Emily get away with blackmailing Ryan, Nelson, and Pete, and it was also nice that the boys were finally able to trust Matthew again when he proved himself.

One thing I thought was hilarious about the show was that probably a large fraction of the episode was spent with the characters saying the full name of the pinball machine. : D

Pretty much the only thing I didn't like about the episode was that there wasn't really good writing for Mr. Whittaker. The actor probably did the best he could with what he had, but the writer didn't give him good lines.

Other than that, it was an enjoyable episode, but not as good as last week's.

I give it a 7/10.

P.S. Did anyone else notice that Olivia said that she was going over to Amber's house? It was nice to see the writers continue that storyline and show that Olivia is still trying to be her friend, and apparently, it's working out.

@ Marvin: Yeah, you can get pretty dry and stale with your comments sometimes. Just kidding! ; D Thanks for commenting on nearly every post I've ever posted. : D

@ BBBATATBFF4EVR: Sure. I'll give you the Most Energetic, Enthusiastic, and Interesting Commenter Award. ;)

  2. The AIO staff should have listened to their own show about promises.
    :-) They told us Kidsboro show was coming, and apparently changed their minds. And I agree with you about how Ryan shouldn't have been in the club. He never was in to taking apart stuff before. The fact that Emily blackmailed Matthew into all that stuff did seem very much like her.

  4. I am really beginning to dislike Emily's character. She is way too sarcastic and smart-mouthed. I really don't like her character at all.

  7. @ Lydia: The award for BBBATATBFF4EVR was pretty much just a joke pointing out that she is my most unique commenter thus far. I enjoy your comments as well, however, and I'm glad that you started again. Thank you for telling me what you thought about what I said.

    @ BBBATATBFF4EVR: I wasn't trying to pick on you, if that's what you really thought. I was just awarding you an award like you asked.

    @ Marvin: I would say you did pretty well. I looked back, and there were very few posts that you didn't comment on. Thank you for your loyalty.

  19. Christian, have you ever heard of Rick Simpson? He has written a lot of songs including "Sinner's Prayer" Why should I worry" and "Open Arms"

    ReplyDelete
  20. No, I haven't. Brittini, if you don't mind, I would prefer for you to keep topics in the comments limited to either Odyssey, or prayer requests if you wish. : )

    ReplyDelete
  21. Christian, Sorry about that. :(

    ReplyDelete
  22. That's okay. It's a rule that my dad has. I'm only allowed to talk about Odyssey. He screens the comments, as well as the posts, so I would appreciate it if everybody stayed on topic. You don't have to feel bad about it. You didn't know, but now you do. : )

  23. Christian, here's an update on the prayer request: I did'nt make it to church last night (my family got sick) so we didn't go, so I couldn't do what God maybe wants me to do.... maybe God doesn't want me to so thats why we had to stay home either that or the devil didn't want me to do what God wants me to AAHHH this is HARD!!!

    ReplyDelete
  24. OK...I'll stay on topic....even if I die in the process. =( Don't worry, Christian, I'll live! I think.
