Sergeant York Review

Sergeant York
 Instead of doing each part, due to the nature of this episode will review it as a whole.

I was really excited about this one. Partly because it's Odyssey's first 4 part episode, (Not counting Plan B) it features Red Hollard, and it's a history episode. Sergeant York is one story that I hadn't heard, before and his story easily became a favorite of mine. the fact that it has Red in it makes it even better. Red assists Eugene in telling York's story on kids radio, and it's well done.
The pairing of these two is brilliant and I really think Red has been under-used so far. I love his phrases because their usually unique much like how Bernard was.

The theme portrayed is very powerful and two-fold. The part that stuck out to me was in part two when York is struggling whether to fight or not. He then isolates himself from the world in an effort to figure things out for himself. Pastor Pyle pegs the the nail on the head,
 "Everyone comes to that point when they must decide for themselves what they truly believe." Truer words couldn't have been said better.  This episode is harder to review seeing I can't judge on accuracy. But otherwise, it's definitely a favorite of mine.
