Awwwwww snap, mah frenz! This is a fangirl service episode if I ever saw one, and Buck’s real name is Buck Bartley!
Kathy, Kathy, Kathy. She knows the fangirl-itis. It doesn’t have to be a good episode, it has to scratch that itch. This is good and bad. This episode is awesome and bizarre at the same time, and it does service to those who have been listening for awhile and have some kind of love for Buck and fanfictions, that kind of thing.
Eugene’s attitude about the whole thing. Once he got it in his mind to persist with the lady that insisted she didn’t know anything, well, that was that. It’s a callback to other episodes, notably ones such as The Right Choice or A Most Surprising Answer. Haven’t seen a lot of that lately, but he is very stubborn about some things.
The entire dialogue between Buck and Eugene is just great. Just great. A++++
Love hearing about stuff that didn’t happen over the air, especially on Wooton’s side of the episode. Whit’s disaster cake. Wooton and Bradford’s relationship, and Wooton’s once not-so-happy life.
THE END is such a fanfiction ending I couldn’t believe it! It makes you like, have a stupid smile on your face. Yayy Buck considers Eugene and Katrina his family!
Looking past the fangirling, fangirling everywhere, was this actually a good episode? If you aren’t a fan of Buck, then no. This is the problem with these kinds of episodes, the entire thing was to accomplish a new emotional and mental state for these characters, and if you aren’t a fan of those characters, then welp…
Another con is that if this is the first episode of Odyssey you ever listen to, then double welp…
Buck was way too excited to find some information. Very OOC (since we’re using fanfiction terms now). He is pessimistic in many regards and way too mature (or so we thought) to be getting that excited about a lead.
Um… what are we trying to accomplish with Wooton, now? I sometimes get confused and this is one of those times. Is he still everyone’s favorite comic relief or are we switching to real character development here? I didn’t think that it would get so… dark. Really fast. It almost felt bizarre. And then extremely emotional really fast. Like, with Buck we are always prepared for something dark, something angsty, but with Wooton you hit us with something dark and we’re like O_O. Think Tow Mater. Cars 2 completely confused me as to if Tow Mater is everyone’s favorite idiot, or if he really is able to foil world plots with the help of his sharp wits. Straying a little to close to that, guys, Wooton is either one or the other.
AND JULES!?!? What the…!? I did a facepalm. Why is she part of Buck’s family tree, this is getting really creepy guys! Really creepy! He puts Eugene, Katrina, Whit, and Jules on there. I’m just sitting here, trying to not be creeped out. You are taking this romance too far… hello… that would be like me putting Luke on my family tree. CREEPY!
Hmmmm ‘kay. Overall, this is a episode purely for the purpose of Buck fans, with Wooton kind of thrown in. The mystery part of it is ‘eh’, there was a bit of a “big reveal” that Buck’s real name is Buck Bartley, but overall this episode served as mushy, emotional character development. Fans will be very divided over this one, because it’s contingent on the fact that you like Buck in the first place. Not an episode for all. So, to you I say: have fun.
