I don't know how this will fit into the Odyssey storyline,but they are doing a great job of keeping the episodes in line with the books.
Merry Christmas!

Whit's voice sounded even farther away in the newest episode IMHO...

I like the new Whit! Makes AIO kind of fresh to me. This is the first episode that I've heard in a loooooooooong time. :)

I concur. He sounds more and more like Bernard crossed with Jack...

Yep, Alan Young still plays Jack Allen. I keep hoping Jack will start speaking with a Scottish accent, but to no avail...:(

And about new Whit...I think he sounded fine in this episode. I really liked this episode. Especially the conversations between Anna and the Old Judge. \:D/ And Quark was in this episode! (and the previous one, but I didn't hear him) :lol:

One notably absent scene in the radio version of Part II was Kyle's conversation with the young boys about Darien's encounter with Soren. After listening to the radio, I went ahead and listened to the album cut, which includes the scene - albeit with a minor change. I was somewhat surprised that they'd leave it out for the radio cut. It's probably one of the most prominent references to the Biblical story. Maybe they didn't want new listeners to catch on too quickly?

I love the Darien's rise episode 1 and 2!!! I think Whit sounds better in the second episode than in the first one. I have a Question for someone that has read the books, "is the old Judge, Fletcher?"

I think the Old Judge is supposed to be Samuel's Marus counterpart. Fletcher was Gideon's Marus counterpart.

I concur. Although I don't like the whole "mysterious" stuff. Perhaps this is why I was reluctant to listen to Passages to start.

Sorry, :cry: I didn't want to spoil it for anyone, I just didn't know I shouldn't ask a question like that. ](*,) I just was trying to come up with something to discuss sense this is a discussion thread about darien's rise.

no, it's fine-I just put it spoilers in case somebody hasn't read the books/listened to the series yet. :)

Since when did they start uploading hidden MP3s of each new episode?!

Jeremy

EDIT: *finds the answer to his own question* Wow! I didn't realize that. Doesn't FOTF realize that people can very easily download a copy of every episode this way?

The newest episode was pretty good. It seemed a lot more steady than the last two. I felt more involved...as if things were picking up a bit.

The new Whit is tolerable only because he is such a great voice actor. ;)
