I think the reason why this episode was so great and so funny was because of the exaggerated melodrama - making "delivering cookies to grandma's house" a 23-minute epic, which is in itself almost ironic. Rodney was the epitome of hilarious evil, and he almost like a Joker-like presence here, which was a lot of fun. It definitely got a little repetitive halfway through, but all in all...

Yes, I am aware that the excessive melodrama was supposed to be great and funny, but it just didn't really work for me. Same with Rodney. However, I guess I can understand why others would like it.

This episode should have never, ever been made. What Odyssey tried to make a fun, silly adventure turned into an over exaggerated, dumb mess! Cookies to grandma, that could have been done in 5 minutes, Alex goes to grandma's house.........but Rodney wanted the cookies really bad and chased Alex for 20 minutes...........pretended to drown. the whole thing with alex narrating was way to overdramatic.....I just thought the whole episode was dumb.......1.5 stars

The episode itself wasn't bad, Wooton, you just didn't get it. According to Nathan and many other people at Focus I've heard from, it's the episode they've got the most praise for from the fans of the years.

It is a little over the top, yes. But it's rather humorous. I really enjoy it.

I think "Snow Day" is the kind of episode that seems to me so imaginative. But why would Rodney be so crazy about cookies? Hasn't he matured at all? Isn't he like 16?

I love snow day! It's hillarious especially with Mr. Smiley the snowman.
And have you seen the video on odyssey.com, where people played it out? That was even funnier! :lol:

There are some hilarious acted-out adaptations. My favorite is the one where the snowman actually blows up.

That one is pretty good, I must admit.

Ehh, it had been a while since I listened to it. I listened to it the other day, and it was better than I remembered. Not the best AIO ever, but not the worst either. *Shrugs*

I liked that one a lot when I first listened to it, although I don't know if I would call it the best episode ever.

I could never believe that people didn't like this episode. Its so great! It is exaggerated but isn't that what makes it so fun? Why would people love Lawrence or Jared? Their whole characters are based on exaggeration! I don't know--I find it funny and consider it a classic.

Snow Day is terrible! (my opinions. People can like it if they want, I don't.)

This has always been one of my favorites. Probably cause it was one of the first episodes I ever heard, I was also very young at the time. But whenever it would snow me and my friends would run around screaming, "JEFFERSOOOOOON!". This episode pretty much sums up childhood in a nutshell (for me at least). Even if it isn't as funny as it used to be, it will always hold a special place in my heart.

Funny story - when I first started listening to Odyssey, the CD was scratched right at this scene. It would skip "JEFF, JEFF, JEFF, JEFF, JEFF..." and then skip a few seconds. It wasn't until much later that I got to appreciate this scene.

All that being said though, this episode isn't one of my favorites, and is probably in my least favorites category.
