What a great episode! The first time
I heard this episode was on December 27th, 1996. I had been a fan for years, but for some
reason I couldn't seem to get my hands on "Daring Deeds, Sinister Schemes," the
Adventures in Odyssey album. Thankfully I finally received it for Christmas, and two days
later, I finally got to hear "Heatwave" that my cousin had been raving about.
The reason I wanted to hear it was because
I was informed that it is a very interesting and funny episode. My cousin wasn't wrong. I
loved this episode! Every time I hear "Heatwave," I look forward to the corny
(which would be considered stupid according to the real world) jokes that are played out
in the show. I like how AIO incorporated the bad joke buzzer into the story.
What I would have preferred the AIO writers
and/or producers to not have done was make them talk about why Digger built Wonderworld as
much. I mean, Digger spent so much time explaining. Well, you get the idea.
I think that the production quality was
done extremely extraordinarily well, and the sound quality was stupendous! Maybe it was
just the copy of the tape I received...?
I had hoped that AIO would use Digger
Digwillow as a character later on, but they never did. However, I wish they would have
made Jimmy as the one who built the Wonderworld Treehouse.
