Episode Reviewed: Opportunity Knocks
I really enjoyed the new route that Adventures in
Odyssey took. "Opportunity Knocks" is an entryway to a great new storyarc to
keep the series running. It also helps AIO not to run out of ideas. There's only so many
kids episodes you can do before a drought comes. And that drought is over! I was happy to
see tons of new characters pop into the scene during the Fall season. Of all the new
characters on the show, my favorite is Arthur Dent. We first meet him in "Opportunity
Knocks." He seems nice enough, but is he?
I was surprised to hear Arthur with a British
accent. I sure hope that he'll remain as a prominent character in th days ahead. Also, I
liked how AIO showed the Timothy Center in financial trouble. It seems like everything is
always good. We need to hear something bad every now and then. Speaking of bad, two things
I don't really like about this episode are how Tom sold his property and the episode is
too short. I was hoping that Tom Riley wouldn't have given in so easily. There could have
been a better way to get out of financial poverty.
AIO did a great job on this episode for a few
reasons. 1) There's terrific acting 2)There is great music and effects 3) It's the
beginning of a great new storyarc. I just hope things will work out in the end and we will
find out who the "bad guy" is.
