When the narrator truly sounds the age of the main character, the listening experience takes on a whole new dimension. Daniel Young could be Nolan, the boy who doubles as the cyberhero Shredderman. Young’s youthful voice brings an immediate intimacy to the action as he narrates at a fast clip. His characters are seen from a boy’s perspective—classmates are animated; bully Bubba Bixby speaks in a slow monotone; Nolan’s dad is exuberant and boyish; his mother, mercurial. As this third episode unfolds, Nolan is treated by his father, a newspaper reporter, to a birthday visit with his favorite TV superhero, The Gecko, and his sidekick, Sticky. Can the new friends join forces “in the battle for truth and justice” to rid the newspaper world of an untrustworthy reporter? A.R.
