"The Imagination Station has gone haywire, and Dylan is in for the ride of his life! Crocodiles, fighter planes, and galactic starcruisers are out to get him, but at each "last second" a mysterious stranger comes to his rescue. Will Dylan ever get home? Stay tuned for the surprise ending that kids want to see again and again! 30 minutes" -- From CBD


Dylan's time in the Imagination Station has never been like this before! He's in a battle to end all battles--and even worse, help seems to be nowhere in sight. Will this nightmare ever end? Find out in Someone to Watch Over Me, for ages 6 and up." -- From FOTF


Someone To Watch Over Me, taken from an AIO audio episode, follows the adventures of Dylan, into the air, to Russia, and into space.  This is perhaps one of the best AIO videos, but pales in comparison to the audio adventure; even so, it is interesting and action filled. However, it's appeal is basically to children, whereas I find the audio series interesting and engaging to both kids and adults. But compared to anything on the secular market, it's content is excellent.
