I love that during the quiet hours we have each day, my boys are content to listen to Adventures in Odyssey. (As a homeschooling family with four boys, quiet hour is treasured. Thanks to Adventures in Odyssey, we ALL treasure those hours.)
The episodes in this era of Adventures in Odyssey can be summed up mostly as "good but not great". This album came just before the huge peak that Odyssey entered in the albums 21-32. These episodes were rather unpredictable; some were very good, while others lacked the polish that could have made them great.The three comedies in this album are "My Fair Bernard", "Family Values", and "Terror from the Skies". "Family Values", although considerably lacking in the usual moral content, is enjoyable for what it is: a hilariously funny episode. The other two were okay, but not too wonderful."Greater Love" and "The Jesus Cloth" were two serious and powerful episodes that top the favorites lists of many fans, and I have to agree. They are in the higher points of the album."The Case of the Delinquent Disciples", "Count It All Joy", and "Why Don't You Grow Up?" are all average, each with a few "saving graces". "The Marriage Feast" was an "okay" Bible story episode, but, it stands out in the album, compared to most of the competition.The highlight of this episode is the adventurous mystery, "The Mysterious Stranger". It excels in every area. Keep in mind that it may be a little too scary for kids under the age of 10, so I advise parents to give this two-parter a quick listen through and decide if their kids can handle it.Favorite Episode: The Mysterious Stranger
All of the Odyssey products are awesome. These have inspired my 14 year old. We listen to all of the products instead of T.V. a lot of the time. They are an inspiration on literary and historical stories as well as life in general's lessons.
