Unbecoming Jay Review
Odyssey has had it's share of bullies over the years.Rodney Rathbone, Rusty Gordon, and the other bones of Wrath, and now in the post 50 we're presented with two bully-like characters Jay and Vance. Jay as the title implies is in this episode. Jay is more than just a bully though, he's often used to add a laugh to the episode and this episode is no exception. Jay is a prime example of how sometimes, ones mouth can work faster than ones brain and not always make sense. Barrett showing Cindy around adds class to Barrett's character. And Jay ditching Cindy was totally like Jay. This episode strengthens the little crush thing that Barrett and Priscilla have going. We get the impression that...
it's common knowledge that Barrett and Priscilla have a thing going, because Jay tries to sabotage it. I really like that in some of the newer episodes, old places like Hal's Diner, (Used in this episode) and Finneman's market are mentioned. It really makes the town feel like the same Odyssey, even though there are so many new businesses around too.
Theme: Love is not rude 4/5
Quotes: 3/5 --
Jay Smouse: Wait a minute. This is one of those reverse what do you call its - isn't it!?
Barrett Jones: What?
Jay Smouse: Like the spies use. Where you try to make me think I didn't get you, when you know I got you, so that you can get me, while I'm worried I might not have gotten you!
Barrett Jones: Look. There's Cindy. See you. Hey! Cindy!
Jay Smouse: Well, One thing's for sure. I don't get it.
Barrett Jones: I've never known anyone like you. You're lips aren't saying anything and you're eyes are saying read my lips.
Interest level: 3.5/5
"Like" rating: 3/5
Average Rating: 3/5
This one was more of a average episode. It doesn't stand out to me for better or for worse. But average for Odyssey is still good. What do you think? Agree with me? Disagree? Feel free to comment.
This has been Freddy Jay connecting the gap between Odyssey and YOU!
