Adventures in Odyssey at its best. Comparable to the Nova Com Saga, "The Blackgaard Chronicles" is a must -get for Odyssey fans. My favorites episodes were probably "A Name Not a Number", "The Time Has Come", and "Waylaid in the Windy City". Episodes include a variety of tones- comedy, mystery, and tragedy, as well as just life around Odyssey. Of course, everthing fits in to the intricate master scheme of Dr. Regis Blackgaard. This album also contains lots of awesome characters like Connie, Eugene, and the detective Jason, who might be called the hero of the story. It didn't have so much of Whit as I had hoped for; he is gone in the Middle East for perhaps 50% of the story. "The Blackaard Chronicles" also includes the remarkable story of Eugene's salvation in "The Time Has Come".
My only regret was that in the story the good guys in essence never win, rather, the bad guys lose, because of corruption on their own part. The battle was long and hard, the victory sweet, but short.
Nice to see all the Blackgaard productions in one box. I haven't always listened to them on the radio and have missed a lot of the shows with Regis Blackgaard and was nice to finally hear them all together. My family loves to listen to Odyssey CDs while we clean or in the car.
