Episode Reviewed: Best Laid Plans (455)
"Best Laid Plans"
was the beginning of a foundation of AIO possibilities that the writers ended up dropping.
Amy hits the scene in this episodes. Everything seems cool enough, and all the sudden
Jason Whittaker's car decides to have trouble. What a shame because he's supposed to be at
the Timothy Center. What could be worse?
I really liked "Best Laid Plans." It was
very original in a few ways: 1) It introduced a new possible lover for Jason. 2) I loved
the way the thunder always was the doorway to scene changes, and 3) An old actor was on
there, Fabio Stephens (Curt Stevens).
I think that this episode brought back the old days
of Odyssey. I have always enjoyed Odyssey episodes that took place during a bad storm.
Fortunately this time there was a new twist. Usually something bad happens. This time
something good happens.
There is one thing that bothers me. Jason Whittaker
isn't in very many episodes anymore, and when he is he doesn't seem himself. He sounds
more like he's fed up with being on the show than being excited about playing his
character. Just a thought.
I definitely recommend this episode to anyone!
