Oddballs Season 2 Episode 6 review
While Echo has been growing on me, ever so slightly this season, I still tend to enjoy episodes without her in them a whole lot more. I truly do not miss her snarky attitude.
With that said, this episode might be my favorite of season 2 so far. Yet, I’m having a hard time discerning why.
It’s funny, wacky and progressively gets worse and worse, while also becoming funnier and wackier. There is no doubt James learned his lesson and truly didn’t mean any harm in telling a small lie to pass his oral presentation.
In an odd way, I think many who struggled or still do with public speaking, can relate to this heavily. They too, might have tried to get out of an oral presentation or two, just with different results.
With only two episodes left to go, will Toasty make his grand season 2 appearance?
