(Coronavirus is in Odyssey! )
On the one hand, I'm glad they addressed the whole virus thing, but on the other hand, I think many people at the moment would be listening to Odyssey to take a break from what's been happening. the plot was okay (yet more great voice work from Katie) but in my opinion it was a bit too similar to other episodes like 'over the airwaves'. I'd love to see them do an episode similar to 'the coolest dog" only with video calls rather than a video camera.ASmouseInTheHouse wrote: ↑Fri Sep 04, 2020 6:39 pmOverall, I liked it. I thought the references to 'technology' were pretty funny, and in my mind, my favorite parts of the episode. I do wish the Veggietales references were more evident, but what they did was pretty good.

I really liked it!
It was simple. It wasn't complex, nor was it trying to be. After all of the intricate multi-dimensional morals that have been delivered recently (I'm lookin' at you, "Millstones" and "The Rydell Revelations"), this episode was just a nice breather. I like complex morals and meditating upon them, but this one was a nice break for my brain.
I liked the message Wilson delivered above. I think I'm becoming better at telling which writer writes which episodes before even knowing because I could feel Phil Lollar's writing showing through at this part. It kinda felt like "The Toy" at this part, which might be why. I'm not complaining; this was a good episode!Wilson Knox wrote:And you may be wondering if this little tale has a moral. The answer is...no. It doesn't. Except to say, as I did at the beginning, that sometimes, we need a simple reminder about the basics — what is truly important.
I finished listening to this episode for the first time at 12:44am. That explains why I didn't catch that "Lou Sipher" was supposed to be a clever way of saying "Lucifer" until it was pointed out. And this morning I realized "secure-original-nutrient" stood for Son and the "synthetic-inverse-nutrient" stood for sin. Clever, clever.
Can we take a moment to appreciate the not-so-subtle references to Wilson getting "the bug that's going around"? And how he self-quarantined? And all the technical problems he faced with his livestream? I really laughed.
I liked this episode! I couldn't even tell it had been remotely recorded!
My favorite part was the Veggietales parody. I do wish that they had made more Veggietales references, though, and was slightly disappointed that the vegetables didn't sing more songs. But I really liked what they did sing. I played the song at least ten times and got it stuck in my head.
I enjoyed the references to "the bug that's going around" in the episode. I'm hoping we hear more of these references in other remotely recorded episodes as they release.
I also did not notice the "Lou Sipher" thing, nor did I notice the acronyms, "S.I.N" and "S.O.N" until they pointed it out.
