|Ok, I confess. I've been listening to Adventures in Odyssey since its very first broadcast. I was in the target age range at the time, but I still love the show.|
With the Novacom story behind them, the show serves up fun and funny shows focusing mostly on the kids and families around town.
"For the Fun of it" opens the album and finds Wooton playing host to his overly mature and well bred niece, with surprising results.
"Room Enough for Two" brings a surprise to Liz and her family when brother Mark shows up for a trip home from the Army with his fiancee.
"BTV: Behind the Scenes" finds disorder and disharmony on the set of the latest BTV episode, ironically enough about unity.
"Bassett Hounds" takes Wooton and Bernard to Alaska and a Bassett family reunion as Wooton's Grandpa plans to pass out his wealth.
"It's All About Me" features dual plots. In the first, Connie is upset when Mitch gets the credit for the advice she is feeding him on his new KYDS radio show. Meanwhile, Jared DeWhite is upset when his brother gets credit for his joke on Rodney Rathbone.
When Liz and her family disappear, it's up to Mandy, Jared, and a few new friends to solve "The Case of the Disappearing Hortons." (Have I mentioned it's wonderful to have Jared back in Odyssey?)
In "The Defining Moment," Marvin must deal with his sports abilities, or lack there of.
A free vacation sounds wonderful to the Washington family, until they get embroiled in the "Mystery at Tin Flat."
Aubrey takes a lesson in sharing her faith from Seth in "All Things to All People." But is this really the best method of evangelism?
Finally, the three part "Here Today, Gone Tomorrow?" finds Mitch tracking down the person who stole Whit's identity and framed Mitch for it. Meanwhile, he finally has to make a decision about joining the FBI. What will he do and what will it mean for his relationship with Connie?
With some drama and comedy mixed in, there's something for everyone here. There were even a few episodes where they surprised me with the ending. Any fan of Odyssey will love this collection of great radio drama.
