Episode Reviewed: Life Trials of the
Rich and Famous (451)
"Life Trials of the Rich and Famous" is an
all-around good episode. I was exceptionally glad to see Nathaniel Graham back into the
show, seeing as how he isn't in that many episodes.
One thing I hate about this episode is the fact that
Liz and Sarah Pratchet use Nathaniel too much because he's rich. Alex isn't that bad (he
doesn't really ask for a lot), but he has some downsides too. I was happy to hear from
Nathaniel's dad because it seems to me that we never hear from kids' parents. Doesn't it
seem like there should be more parent roles? Just take a look! Adventures in Odyssey is a
I am also glad that this is one of the "kids
slice of life" episodes and it is serious at the same time. They need to be writing
more of these adventures. You gotta admit. Not everyone jokes all the time when they talk.
It's like Alex Jefferson always says something funny. That's what I like about Mandy. She
is a quiet, calm, and collected kid.
All in all, this is a delicious episode for all.
