* kablammin45: ''AdventuresInOdyssey'' is a great series, though this troper was left shaking his head at the episode "A Glass Darkly". Poor Trent Dewhite is unable to catch a break from his teacher Dr. Hawthorne, who goes from just an overly strict teacher to a borderline SadistTeacher. First off, TheBully Rodney Rathbone starts a food fight in the cafeteria that everyone gets involved in (except Trent), then the teacher comes in, [[CantGetAwayWithNuthin and lays all the blame on Trent]] (with the exception of Rodney, possibly) just because he was holding freakin jello that had gotten in his hair! That's not all, though, Trent gets detention, and Dr. Hawthorne won't even let Trent off when Trent explains that he has a very important meeting to get to. Any normal, sane teacher would at least lessen the severity of the punishment if that happens, but noooooo. Then when Rodney later tries to turn loose a bunch of bees in the teacher's car (which he's revealed to be allergic too later), Trent tries to get rid of them, then the teacher comes and [[DeusAngstMachina blames Trent again]], extending Trent's punishment even further. At the end comes a ShootTheShaggyDog, where Trent finally manages to call the people he was meeting with, but then they won't let [[TheWoobie Trent]] in because of him getting in trouble. To be fair though, Trent learns to believe something good can come out of something bad, which lessens the blow a little, but Dr. Hawthorne was still [[DarthWiki/WallBanger unbelievably]] harsh.

** Uttergenius - In "Share and Share Alike", [[VignetteEpisode Connie and Jack share three stories about the importance of sharing]]. The stories about Roy and Daniel are really well done; Roy's story is funny, Daniel's story is heartwarming, and both are thought-provoking. The Jane story, on the other hand, is so needlessly cruel. Jane refuses to take her younger sister to Whit's End, and as a result, [[TookALevelInJerkass pretty much everybody important in her life refuses to share anything with her. Including her own family!]] She didn't get any breakfast because she wasn't fast enough, and she couldn't get anything to eat at school, either. The story is trying to [[PlayedForLaughs play her suffering for laughs]], but [[DisproportionateRetribution since she didn't do enough to deserve it]], [DudeNotFunny it's not funny]], and it makes the story frustrating to listen to. "Share and Share Alike" is far from the worst episode of the series, but this, I can say for certain, is the worst plot of the series, and I always skip over it whenever I decide to relisten to this episode.

*** Starshock: I agree that Adventures In Odyssey JumpedTheShark, but the Dethroning Moment for me was the Novacom story arc. It was too long, had far too many cliffhangers, and came out of nowhere. I never found out how it resolved because I gave up on it. Something else that irritated me was that it was more of a SoapOpera than their story arcs usually were. Then there were all the new characters, and that tone shift was just so bizarre.

* Doctor Sleep: [[http://www.esquire.com/blogs/news/stop-giving-your-money-to-michael-bay??src=rss This article]] by ''Esquire Magazine''. Now Michael Bay is by no means a creative or even decent filmmaker, but the way Ben Collins goes on about him crosses the line between criticism and flat-out insulting him just to be smug. Also, telling parents that letting their children experiment with drugs and fireworks is better than letting them see the new ''Ninja Turtles'' movie just comes across as malicious snark for the sake of it. You can see this in Collins' use of clichés such as "TMNT is a disaster porn corruption" and one paragraph that's basically "this movie will somehow ruin your childhood". A good critic would at least mention an alternate film coming out that season that would be more entertaining, but apparently Collins cares less about praising art and more about insulting hot topics. By not acknowledging true cinema, Ben Collins doesn't come across as the cultured man about town he obviously considers himself. He comes across as just another opinionated hipster loudly rebelling against what's popular for the sake of being noticed.

** Ecojosh1: The episode "Castles and Cauldrons" made me stop listening. Jimmy's cousin Len comes to town and introduces him to the world of role playing games. The entire story revolves around RPG's being a form of witchcraft. The players become the characters, gain supernatural abilities, contact spirits, and perform rituals that involve drawing blood. No RPG in the real world is anything like that. Role playing games are just games, and plenty of Christians see nothing wrong with them. But the writers of this episode either have never seen anyone play the game, or they just lied to further their agenda. As if this wasn't bad enough, Mr. Whittaker destroys Len's game, and this is seen as a good thing. [[FamilyUnfriendlyAesop Remember kids, if someone you know owns something you think is ungodly, you should destroy it.]]
