REVIEW — “The Ties That Bind, Part 4”

The story continues, and so do the themes, in Part 4 of The Ties That Bind.  Ryan and I go into our thoughts on a few hilarious lines, how Paul McCusker’s theology is presented by his characters, the progression of the plotlines so far, Whit’s spiritual radar, and vilifying the opposition.

Please note that we do talk candidly about the themes and issues brought up in these episodes.

REVIEW — “The Ties That Bind, Part 3”

 

Icky feelings abound this for this review of the next episode in The Ties That Bind.  As the plot develops and the Parkers are introduced into the story, we discuss Connie’s role as Jules’s guardian, Hadley’s motivations for his clumsiness, and the Parker parents’ parenting strategies.  It’s case-sensitive, as they say.

REVIEW — “The Ties That Bind, Part 1”

 

Ryan is back again to begin a long-anticipated review series of “The Ties That Bind,” starting with Part 1.  As the fourteen-parter opens, we discuss how this episode sets up a lot of storylines, if Paul McCusker’s writing holds up, and whether Wooton or Penny (or Hadley) is more unbearable by the end.  And this all ties into Biblical marriage somehow?  Let’s find out.
