So What's Been Happening Recently on AIO websites?

April 9Since it will be another three weeks before we hear any new Odyssey shows, I decided to take the time to review some Odyssey websites and point out some recently added features.  Thus follows the "AIOHQ April 2001 Webguide to Recently Added Features."

The Odyssey Scoop (Fan Webpage)
Not to be confused with the Odyssey Scoop in Clubhouse magazine, this fan site has some fun new features.

The Odyssey Scoop (check out the preview of the "virtual" Whit's End!)

Extra! Extra! Just to make things more confusing, the Odyssey Scoop has a version of the Odyssey Times.  Read some interesting articles.

You Know You're Addicted to Odyssey When... This section mixes the well-known feature from the Complete Guide with some insightful new ways to know.  (My favorites: "You know why the dog walked on water," and "You use the word "colloquialism.")

Actors -- See some compiled pictures of some of the Odyssey actors.

So what do Mandy, Nathaniel, and Alex look like?

Here's a snapshot of the three of them (Aria Curzon, Blake Ewing, Travis Tedford).
