To tell you the truth, I think that
this is probably the worst Adventures in Odyssey episode that I have ever heard. That's
pretty bad considering that I am a definite candidate for the major AIO fans list. I
remember listening to it still for the first time. The stupidity unveiled itself right as
the episode began!
The one thing I remember thinking was, "Is this
really going to be put into the next AIO album, 'Danger Signals'?" I might think
twice about getting it now. But I know I will end up getting the album because I have all
the albums as it is, and I'd really like to continue my collection, for a collection isn't
a collection without having every single one!
Now to the episode itself. I always thought Rodney
Rathbone was just a little mature, but when I heard "Snow Day," it proved I was
wrong. Either I was wrong or the AIO people were wrong for making the episode! What a
pathetic character Rodney has turned out to be! For goodness sake! He was chasing Alex
Jefferson for his cookies! What makes it even dumber is, he was chasing him for cookies
that he ended up being allergic to! Talk about a stupid idea! And it seems as if whoever
wrote this episode (I have a pretty good idea who because I recognize his/her writing and
am not too fond of it) was paralleling an old story about a certain Little Red Riding
Hood. I noticed that right away.
"Snow Day," in my opinion, also seems to be encouraging
young children to risk their lives sledding down a hill towards an ice covered river! It
seems rather strange because in an episode titled, "Isaac the Courageous," the
Bones of Wrath are daring kids to walk across ice to get a stick and bring it back so they
can join the club. Back in that episode they portrayed ice-covered rivers dangerous. But
now in "Snow Day," I guess now it's not dangerous anymore and it's worth risking
my life to save my grandma's cookies! Hmmm... I don't think I will ever enjoy listening to
this episode in the future. It's just too unrealistic and contradicting.
