I though it was hilarious, with the whole villain guy and all. :D And of course it was good to hear Jason again. It was funny and at the same time a little more so on the adventure side. I give it five stars! \:D/

Greatest episode of the season! I LOVED it! "The Whisperer" and Jason, and Tasha! Golly Gee Whilikers!! That was so well put together. And then an appearence from Carson and Grady! The second part is bound to be good!

One thing that caught my eye: APPLESAUCE? Are they crazy? Did they LOSE their minds somewhere along the way? But then, guess who wrote the episode. You got it, Paul Mckusker. Surprise you in the least? Yeah, not me at least.
The applesauce thing caught me off guard at first. It's been used in every arc, every saga, and last I heard, it was destroyed at the end of "The Battle" (if I remember right). How does it keep showing up? Is there some mystery to this program? Have we not figured it out yet?

Tasha's voice bothered me. It wasn't...her. Yeah, okay, TASHA'S back, but with that voice? um.... redo?

I liked the scene at Trickle lake. It gave me ideas... for stories that is. I can only wonder if Jason will ever be back in Odyssey after this, by the sounds of it.
The boat part was weird... a miniature boat shooting needles or something of that sort? Yeah, technology has gone real far these days. Oh, wait, it actually has (but miniature boats?)

So far, this was the best episode this season. I can't wait for the second part. If I could, I'd be listening to even this episode more than once, but my internet won't let me. But, I still remember most of it.

I rate it a....5!!!!!!!!! Come on Part 2!

I didn't even notice Tasha was a different voice! :anxious:

I liked the episode. It's great to hear from people we haven't heard from in awhile. I am so excited about this season! The style is just like the Odyssey I used to love! \:D/

As I started this episode, I was like: "Ok, this sounds like the rest of the season (Which I haven't really been enjoying)". Boy was I wrong. By the end of the episode I was ready to give it 5 stars!

They should just get it over with and have Rusty come back to Odyssey. Seriously, he gets mentioned all the time. >_> That's partly why I thought it was going to be another episode that I wouldn't like.

I loved this episode. Jason has always rocked, and we haven't really heard from him in a while. I found it rather funny that everyone didn't know he was a NSA analyst though. :-k I guess he was pretty secretive about it. Tasha was good. It didn't sound exactly like her, but it was very good. Didn't bother me at all.

On to Grady. It's so cool to have his dad back. I like the McKay family now. not that I didn't before, but it feels so much more like a complete real life family since he came back. It's interesting seeing Grady getting to know his dad now. The part where Carson was trying to put the worm on the hook makes me want to wince every time I hear it (I've heard it 3-4 times now. :- ).

The Whisperer was so awesome. His evil laugh that didn't work too well. The way Jason teased him. xD.

Guess what, I gave this episode 5 stars. \:D/

Yeah, I pretty much agree with that. \:D/

When I started it, I was like, "Oh, no, here we go again, another not-so-great episode," but by the end I gave it 5 stars. \:D/

"It is long gone like the Commdore 64 computer..."

A thing that is neat, because I am a huge Commdore 64 fan. I am still making games for the Commdore 64.

Oh, I totally forgot, I was going to say something about that. Our first computer was a commodore of some kind. I think we still have the monitor. \:D/

I believe Mandy Steckelberg provided the voice for Tasha. :)

While there were a couple things I disliked about this episode, I overall thoroughly enjoyed this episode. Jason was his old self, staying light-hearted and cracking jokes even when held hostage. I also enjoyed the integration of Grady and Carson into the episode. As for my dislikes, I was a little disappointed they couldn't bring back the original actress for Tasha, but I didn't mind the new actress much. Also, I thought the Whisperer's voice was a bit cheesy and rather silly-sounding. However, these factors didn't detract from my overall enjoyment of this episode. I give it 4.5 stars. =D>

good: The spy stuff is great. The little alussion to the Bible was great with the secret password. My absolute favorite part: TASHA IS BACK!!!! It is amazing! Yay Tasha! Anyway, if you haven't noticed, I love Tasha. I like how they incorporated Grady and his dad. I look forward to hearing Grady and Jason together.

bad: You know what, there wasn't really anything bad about this episode that I can think of. You now how much I like to find bad things about episodes.

Anyway, I give this episode 5 remotely controled airplanes out of 5.

Yeah, I guess I just never realized that Connie and Eugene never found out about Jason (since we've all known for quite some time). That explains the quote from No Way Out.
Connie: Where did you learn that?!

Jason: Uhh...Boyscouts.
