Reviews - What do customers think about Audio CD-Adventures In Odyssey V33: Virtual Realit?

Oh Odyssey, how far you have sunken...  Jul 14, 2005
If you're like me, you're buying this album mainly because there is a two-part Blackgaard story (Blackgaard's Revenge) on this album. So my review will mostly focus on this episode.

This, in my humble opinion, is the episode where AIO officially "jumped the shark", so to speak.

The episode begins with a parental warning that the episode may be too intense for younger listeners. They should have also included a warning that the episode may be too stupid, fantastic and just plain ridiculous for anyone with the slightest inkling of common sense and AIO continuity.

First off, the premise itself is the problem. The real Dr. Blackgaard is of course dead, but what comes around for this bout is a "Blackgaard" virus-program that somehow has all his memories and has a sophisticated learning matrix to learn everything else. When did Blackgaard plant this in the Imagination Station? We're told during the time he took over Whit's End, but are we really supposed to believe that he figured out how to figure out how to program that sophisticated of a program into the Imagination Station during that short time when he was busy campaigning for mayor and getting the mineral situation squared away? Also, if this program is supposed to be like him, why does it remember things that presumably took place AFTER he would have implanted it? And why would Blackgaard put such a program in the Imagination Station when he was planning on blowing up Whit's End?

But never mind. "Dr. Blackgaard" has appeared for one last go, but it's apparent that any greatness is quickly lost in the atrociously bad dialogue coming out of "Blackgaard's mouth." From his opening line of "I'm back, and I'm not happy..." to his taunt of "Run, chickens! Run!", the episode quickly loses steam.

Then, as the second part begins, something called THICK AND OVERUSED SYMBOLISM begins to hit the viewer over the head. Do you think Blackgaard represents Satan? Do you think Whit symbolizes Jesus? Do you think Aubrey represents man? Do you think Whit will sacrifice his life to save Aubrey and then come back to life? If you know all the answers to these questions before you hear the rest of the story, congratulations. You have both intelligence and common sense.

What makes this worse is that the resurrection scene is VERY anticlimactic. Without giving too much away, Whit's method of resolving the conflict is cheap compared to what Jack Allen did so well in "The Final Conflict" (the true ending to the Blackgaard saga, by the way).

Speaking of schemes, Dr. Blackgaard's scheme in this episode makes no sense. Without revealing too much, he has a scheme to attain eternal life that doesn't really give him eternal life in the strict Christian sense of the word. I would have liked to see this been expanded on more.

The rest of the album is full of stories that are okay, but mostly subpar to the peak that AIO reached in years past. Fans of the show will also note that a couple of these episodes are consist of two ten-minute episodes. The format is disastrous and was quickly abandoned. The only two stories that come close to being anything great are "Opening Day" (which introduces one of the best new characters: A non-believer named Aubrey Andromeda) and "Chain Reaction" (written by Marshall Younger, one of the more experienced AIO writers), but that's it. "Virtual Realities" is just another sign that the "new" AIO episodes just don't cut it.
 
Blackgaard is back???  Mar 1, 2005
Oh no!  Dr. Regis Blackgaard is back...in the Imagination Station no less!  Is anyone in Odyssey safe from his latest scheme?  Come along on the adventure and experience the best birthday ever...that never ends!  Join in the biggest mud fight Odyssey has ever seen and hear how the adults are planning a year of NO FUN!  Along the way, learn lessons about being honest, using time and resources wisely and helping others.  This album is your ticket to 14 different adventures in Odyssey - and in your own imagination.

Episodes:

1. Another Man's Shoes (Theme: Understanding others)
2. Opening Day (Theme: God's leading)
3-4. BLACKGAARD'S REVENGE (PARTS 1 & 2)  (Theme: Recognizing deception).
5. The Buck Starts Here! (Using resources wisely).
6. The Eternal Birthday (Theme: Too much of a good Thing) Aubrey wishes that her birthday would last forever...or does she?
7. Bethany's Imaginary Friend (Theme: Imagination is healthy) Aubrey has an imaginary friend and it's driving Bethany nuts.
8. The Y.A.K. Problem (Theme: Worry).
9. Blind Girl's Bluff (Theme: Honesty).
10. Where There's Smoke (Theme: Positive Role Models).
11. The Virtual Kid ( Theme: Enjoying Life).
12.  You Win Some, You Lose Some (Theme: Being a good example)
13.  The Treasure Room (Theme: Valuing people)
14.  Chain Reaction  (Theme: Consequences of irresponsibility).

REVIEW: You may notice how there are more episodes in this volume.  Basically, in the third CD...instead of one full 20 minute story, there are two 10 minute episodes.  This volume introduces a new family and sisters, Bethany and Aubrey.  Although Blackgaard returns, I read that AIO wants to go back to providing stories that weren't as serious in previous years and to go back to stories concentrating on the kids.  Either way, I'm sure the stories will be excellent and this one is pretty good as well.  Blackgaard stories are pretty popular because of the good vs. evil storyline and how Witt and friends always are triumphant.  These storylines are pretty good and I enjoyed the whole CD.
