  • Opie and the secret club!

    This is a darker episode than usual. I noticed that the music was quite dramatic, and almost overwhelming actually at some points. It is a slightly amusing episode, but not as strong an entry on either comedic or moral grounds. In other words, it's one of those episodes that actually is quite scary--that fire burns so intensely, and the resolution of the whole thing is much too contrived and quick. Opie's final scene with Andy is cute--but doesn't hit the bull's eye either.
