(Out of 5 cones):
Wooton gets Bernard a big window-washing job, Bernard promises to
return the favor. But helping Wooton out may be more than he
paint me with three eyes and call me Picasso!”
the course of Adventures in Odyssey, we’ve had opportunities to get
to know the main characters’ families. For instance, we learned more about
Connie’s mother and father in Father’s
Day. We also learned about Bernard Walton’s family troubles in Feud
for Thought. We’ve learned about Eugene’s lack of relatives in Last
in a Long Line. Now we get to learn more about Wooton’s family.
I was generally pleased
Hounds. Bernard Walton and Wooton Bassett make a nice team to
listen to. Perhaps Wooton is a lot like Eugene in that he gets on
Bernard’s nerves? Whatever the reason, Bernard and Wooton are easy to
listen to. There were a lot of twists and turns in this episode. We had
previously known that Wooton’s brother was rich, but we hadn’t known why
or what’s up with the rest of his family. I’m glad we’re finding out
what the deal is with them. AIO does a good job of tying in family details
to make a Biblical point.
I mentioned Feud
for Thought a second ago, that’s because it and Bassett
Hounds remind me of one another. They both have different
storylines, but the feel of each episodes is the same.
When I found out
Bernard was going to Alaska, I couldn’t help but laugh. He seems like he
would never go to that state of all states. I could just imagine how awkward
it must be for Bernard to be involved in this little family fight over
Grandfather’s inheritance. I don’t even think I’d know how to react if
I was being accused of trying to get some of the fortune when I’m not even
related. Some are even acting like Christians just to get the goods. Sheesh!
It was good to know that Wooton and his grandfather are Christians, and the
bit about the desk chair was corny, but so is Wooton. Bernard and his beef
jerky stood out too.
The bit about
Grandfather on videotape was quite interesting. When one of the family
members asks, “Has he lost his mind?” and Grandfather responds, “No, I
haven’t lost my mind,” as if he can hear the question being asked is
quite a good part of the episode. I think it would be interesting to get to
know more about Wooton’s family in the days ahead.
liked the music of Bassett
I’ve been noticing that there’s been a distinct music twang when Wooton
is in the episode. The sound design was excellent in every count and I was
conclusion, this episode is a must-hear. I give Bassett
3 and ½ out of 5 cones.
