Alright...Time to get caught up again.
Fast as I Can.
This episode has a great theme. It's one that hasn't been touched on a whole lot in Odyssey. Although in The Meaning of Sacrifice, the Barclay gave up TV for a similar reason, but it's sort of different I guess. I like how each character has their own unique fast/lesson learned from said fast. In this episode, Eugene seems back to his old usual wordy self. Having him give up words more than two syllables was perfect for his character. A very nice touch for this episode. Matthews fast of computers seemed very fitting as well. Although his whole adventure in the imagination station seemed out of place.... The imagination Station being influenced by a computer obsessed mind? It makes sense I suppose, but in the context of this episode it makes it seem like the user would have to have knowlege of the adventure in order for it to work. Which wasn't required before. This aspect of the imagination station is really the only big thing I didn't like in this episode. Wooton's fast of junk food was hilarious as well. The scene with Mrs. Randolph is too funny. "Thank you for the Moon!" All the fasts and all the lessons learned fit together nicely in the usual Odyssey multi story manner. Such a nice way to get multiple perspectives on the same theme.
