I think the emotional episodes are awesome but it may become too much of a good thing.
I agree with this. I'm fine with emotional episodes, but I think we're getting a little too much with the Perkins family.
I’m a little late, but here are some of my thoughts:
First of all, I must say that it was excellent continuity from "Jumping Off, Jumping In". Basically "Jumping Off, Jumping In, Part 2".
I had two favorite scenes. I liked the scene where Wyatt insists on helping the 48-year-old lady cross the street. It was funny. And Bridget’s line about wrinkle cream made me laugh. I also laughed during the part where Wyatt’s airhorn and pepper spray goes off at Whit’s End. Great scenes. I liked how Connie referenced “The Coming of Age” when she says, “looks like another kid with a crush on me”.
Oh, and that was a nice return of the dumpster behind Whit’s End (I’m pretty sure it’s the same one)! I believe the last time we heard from the dumpster was in “Chip Off the Shoulder”, back in album 49: The Sky's the Limit. It was good to hear from it again, I’ve been missing it.
I really liked that Marshall Younger brought it back. Too bad Connie didn’t go digging in it again.
Is it just me, or does it sound like Wyatt’s voice is changing? Compare it to “Jumping Off, Jumping In”. It sounds like it's getting deeper in this episode. I really hope they don’t change the actor.
Also, Wyatt’s plan to invest all his money in chairs is genius. His reasoning is very logical. I intend to use this investment plan.
Do people usually carry pepper spray on their keychains? I certainly don’t, and I don’t think I’ve seen anyone else do so. And whenever someone says "pepper spray", I keep getting reminded of the episode “My Favorite Thing”, where Doris Rathbone says, “But I forgot the pepper spray at home!”
Overall, I liked this episode, but I liked “Jumping Off, Jumping In” better. Although I am annoyed about the Perkins getting two episodes in this album, I thought “The Protector” was good.
