Something I've never understood is why Whit protested Novacom's "violent" shows when, in the imagination station kids have seen countless brutal deaths, been put in life threatening situations, have been starved, beaten, and enslaved! Plus, according to Whit, he wants to make the imagination station adventures as realistic as possible so that might even include pornography. Jesus was technically naked on the cross after all. So it seems a bit pointless for Whit to get so irritated about something that he's probably guilty of himself! At the very least he contradicted himself by making the programs not nearly as realistic as he said they are. Also, how is Whit reviewing all these Novacom shows? He doesn't have a TV.

I think it has been said that their physical appearance is similar; for example, Leonard says, "My word! You look like someone I once knew," to Eugene, so they look alike, apparently. Also, they are both highly intelligent and their main interests are in science.

I mean, that could very well be because they were separated for twenty years, which spanned much of the formative development that Eugene would remember. Besides, parents and children don't always sound very alike, and that includes on this show; remember, young!Whit's voice actor is Jim Custer, who doesn't sound that much like Townsend Coleman.

To add to that, if you look at the cover for the album cover for Into the Light, they look pretty similar. You can only see the lower half of Leonard's face, but they still clearly have some resemblance.

OKAY, so I was listening to "The Other Woman" just now, during the part where Tom explains to Eugene what happened to Agnes. Tom says that Agnes is not his first wife, he had another wife, who was Timmy's mom. She and Timmy died shortly before Tom married Agnes. Which means that Agnes never met or knew Timmy. BUT, in the Novacom series (sorry, IDK which episode), when Tom is able to bring Anges home because of the Novabox, Agnes sets three places at the table for dinner, saying "Timmy's gonna be starving when he gets home [from practicing a sport I don't remember]." She was supposedly relapsing and reenacting something she'd done so many years ago, assumedly before she went to Hillendale. Except, Agnes never made Timmy dinner. Agnes wasn't even married to Tom when Timmy was alive.

Am I missing something?

Yeah I've never understood that either. I think it's just a mistake on the part of the writers.

I think it was meant to show just how far Agnes was relapsing. She had never even met Timmy, but yet thought he needed a table setting.

The Imagination Station runs a generic program. It is up to the kids' imaginations (at least in classic Odyssey) to project the images. Think of something along the lines of the holodeck programs on Star Trek: The Next Generation, except that only the visual images and character/subject interactions are malleable from person to person, based off of the participant's choices and his subconscious' projections of the events in question.

As far as the "Jesus was naked on the cross, so....." comment, Scripture states that He did not even look like a man, or anything closely resembling a human being at that point. This would not have been a pornographic instance, this would have resulted in disbelief and disgust.

Okay, I guess that makes since. It's always confused me how everything is generated in the imagination station, but saying that it's up to the kids makes a bit more sense. Thanks!
