The Parkers Were Wasted Potential.

The most prominent Odyssey family. The second most prominent Odyssey child. Why did it all go to waste? This week, Don criticizes the writers disposal of the Parker family in Let’s Talk About: The Parkers.

Let’s Talk About Sagas: After Novacom, Before the Hiatus

During the 5-year span of 2003 to 2008, there were about four minor sagas, three character reappearances, two father-son reunions, and of course, some criminal activity. It was like the days between Blackgaard and Novacom, just everyday Odyssey happenings, with better stories of course, (cough-2000 season-cough). Sure we had some excitement, but it was mostlyContinue reading “Let’s Talk About Sagas: After Novacom, Before the Hiatus”

Let’s Talk About Relationships: Connie and Jules

Today we will talk about one of my favorite relationships, the one between Connie and Jules.

Let’s Talk About Sagas: The Leonard Melstner Saga

In the Adventures in Odyssey Club, which you should have joined after my compelling speech, a compilation album of the Leonard Melstner saga is now  available.

The sagaContinue reading “Let’s Talk About Sagas: The Leonard Melstner Saga”
