    Aw! I loved this! It’s very real!


  • COOLCUZ on December 19th, 2019 - 7:49am

     

    What are people’s thoughts on Tasha Forbes, Jason’s former fiancé? I never really liked her. She was too tough and not at all like a lady, in my opinion. I was just curious!

  • Cartoons on December 19th, 2019 - 9:53am

     

    Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!! Talk to y’all next year and congratulations on your hard work and success of 1,000 comments! 🙂


  • Gisela on December 19th, 2019 - 9:55am

     

    @COOLCUZ
    I really like Tasha and I definitely think she had the potential to be a fully-fleshed out character. With so many characters on AIO, though, I can understand why she did not have a larger part in the show.
    I think she is tough but also can have a sweet side, if she lets her guard down, which is admittedly rarely.


  • PeterF on December 19th, 2019 - 10:38am

     

    comment freeze starts tomorrow.


  • PeterF on December 19th, 2019 - 10:40am

     

    I liked tasha. I think if jason had to get married I would pick her.


  • PeterF on December 19th, 2019 - 10:42am

     

    @KOREAN: people just like to try get the first comment when a new podcast comes out.


  • Cartoons on December 19th, 2019 - 11:12am

     

    I think Tasha was a great character and fit her role in AIO very well. 🙂


  • Cartoons on December 19th, 2019 - 11:13am

    Okay, so I’d like everybody’s opinions! What did you think of Monica Stone? I really love her!


  • Jell-O on December 19th, 2019 - 12:05pm

     

    Hey everyone, I’d like to ask you to please pray for my family regarding my grandmother. She is dying quickly and its really hard for us. The nursing home taking care of her put her on a lot of drugs; she can’t move or speak, and she’s not eating. They finally backed the medication, but she is too far gone. This will be her last Christmas with us. We didn’t expect it to happen so fast. It’s hard adjusting to the fact, so your prayers would be appreciated.


  • Jell-O on December 19th, 2019 - 12:18pm

     

    @CARTOONS
    Thank you! Lol! 😉

    Your welcome :p and I’m so sorry about your grandma and I will be praying.


  • Cartoons on December 19th, 2019 - 1:26pm

     

    @Gisela,
    I love Monica! I think she has potential to change into a better person to! In fact she seemed to change near the end of the nova com saga. I always liked her character though!


  • Jell-O on December 19th, 2019 - 1:27pm

     

    @GISELA and MELISSA
    Thank you both. The doctor said she might only live a few days or weeks without eating. Reality kicked in when my mom started arranging a funeral home. I hope we get to spend Christmas with her.


  • WWIININJA on December 19th, 2019 - 1:38pm

     

    I just listened to the newest episode form the new album, and I don’t think Jillian and Jason work anymore.


  • Whit Fan #1 on December 19th, 2019 - 1:52pm

     

    @JELL-O I will be praying for you and your family.


  • COOLCUZ on December 19th, 2019 - 2:34pm

    Ooh, honey, I’m so sorry! I’ll pray for you and you family! Hugs!

    @GISELA:
    MONICA WAS BAD!!!! I didnt like her as a character even as she was sorry. That’s just my opinion.

    And in the newest Odyssey (on the Club) proves that Jason doesn’t like Jillian. At all.

    That’s a pretty cool podcast!The driving scene reminds me of ‘Crash Coarse’ LOL! 🙂

    Merry Christmas, everybody!!!?
    2020 is CRAZY close! Ahhh! 🙂
    @GISELA, Monica is cool.
    @JELL-O I will pray for your grandma and your family. I hope that you will find healing and that she will enjoy her last Christmas.

    Nom I want to listen to the new album! Lol


  • LIACUPCAKE on December 19th, 2019 - 2:48pm

     

    @COOLCUZ, I love Tasha. Personally, I like characters who are tough and ‘not lady like’. I would say that I wish that they work, but Jillian is totally the perfect match for Jason!


  • COOLCUZ on December 19th, 2019 - 3:24pm

     

    MERRY CHRISTMAS!

    Thank you. We went to visit her this afternoon. She was asleep most of the time and senseless when she was awake, but my mom said to talk to her and let her know we’re there.

    @Jello
    So the ironic thing is I put an emoji in the comment in which I said I wasn’t going to put one in. Apparently I really like emojis… lol 😛


  • Gisela on December 19th, 2019 - 4:38pm

     

    @WWIININJA @COOLCUZ
    I never really liked Jason & Jillian to begin with, so the new episode didn’t surprise me.

    @GISELA: I thought Monica stone was fine.

    @NAOMIORNA10: read one of the earlier comments. someone said that the new episode makes it seem like Jason and Jillian aren’t getting together. I hope that’s true.


  • PeterF on December 20th, 2019 - 4:41pm

     

    I listened to the new episode. It was actually better than I expected it to be.

  • WWIININJA on December 20th, 2019 - 6:24pm

     

    @LiaCupcake
    Jillian drives Jason crazy whenever they are together, so they wouldn’t have a good marriage.


  • WWIININJA on December 20th, 2019 - 6:25pm

     

    @PeterF
    I hope not.


  • Naomiorna10 on December 21st, 2019 - 12:45pm

     

    PETERF: OK. I heard it and it seems like they sadly are getting together. Have you listen to “Good Job” ?


  • Gisela on December 21st, 2019 - 2:38pm

     

    @COOLCUZ
    Jillian’s growing on me. I liked her a lot in the new episode. But no matter what happens, I do not believe Jillian and Jason would be good together. Jillian is flighty and Jason has a lot of emotional baggage from his days as an agent. He needs someone who can support him, not annoy him.

    Hey I love odyssey so much! Though I actually just found this website about a month ago. It’s funny because I have been listening to odyssey since a was a kid. You guys all seem nice. I can’t wait to get a little more connected to the adventures in odyssey I know and love.
