144: "Someone To Watch Over Me"

Post by Kenric »

I just finished listening to "Someone To Watch Over Me" and I gave it a perfect score. I mean..come on..it was very different and I think it's one of the most original episodes AIO has done. If you haven't seen it, you should go check it out right here. Seriously. It's good.

This would be my favorite episodes; as you can see here: http://www.thetoo.com/viewtopic.php?t=5017

As a young boy, it gave me so many chills each time I heard it.

I also think you meant to have a 5th star rating, did you not? At the moment, you have only 4. If so, I'll be happy to add one.

"Someone to Watch Over Me" got pretty repetative fast. However, it still kept a very emotional punch at the end, much like the one in "No Boundaries". That's why I gave it a 4.

The only thing I really disliked about it was the inclusion of the "Grim Reaper". I never like it when false doctrine is added to Adventures in Odyssey, even if it is minor. Much like Satan mocking and tormenting some characters in Hell in "Two Roads". Satan does not want to be in Hell; he wants to stay as far away as possible. He is not the "ruler of Hell" or "head torturer". That's why I was a bit skeptical about this episode.

However, that is a minor problem; a small chip in a China plate, if you will.

Overall, "Someone to Watch Over Me" is a very good episode.

Nice sound effects. Nice ending. Overall pretty good episode, though not among my favorites. On a humorous note, I wonder if there were any liability issues for Digger Digwillow (who built Wonderworld) for perhaps using defective materials in that treehouse?
