Episode Reviewed: Red Herring (458)
"Red Herring" was a definite thriller for
me. Every minute of the episode kept me wondering. As this hacker entered the scene, I was
in awe! What made me angry was that this marked the very end of the AIO season for Fall
2000! That meant that I had to wait for three months to hear the conclusion! And you know
what made things worse? They didn't explain any of it all Spring 2001! Grrrrrr!
Cal Jordan makes a perfect addition to the AIO
actors. When I learned that Adam Pavlakovich was the son of one of my favorite actors on
AIO, I was especially excited because this was exciting! I now knew what my favorite
actress's son sounds like! And he's a good actor!
What is RWS? We all know that it is the Radio Wave
Study, but why is it so secretive? I was really annoyed when they planned Eugene into the
story because he could be a bad guy now! You never know... He could be a bad guy and not
know it, but I highly doubt it.
I think that this was a perfect introduction to the
new Bad Guy, Novacom. During Connie's interview with Cal and Alex Jefferson, I think that
someone from Novacom heard it on the radio. That's why I suspect that the hacker, be it he
or she, showed up on the college website. Hmm... Something strikes me as odd with Robert
Mitchell (or Mitch as he is better known), Connie Kendall's new bo. Could he be AREM? It's
just a thought. Even though Mitch isn't introduced until later, I had to bring that up.
All in all, this is a very suspenseful episode, and I highly
encourage listening to this developing storyarc.
