REVIEW — “The Right Choice, Part 2” (ft. Hannah Matlock)

The oft referenced but rarely featured Hannah Matlock joins her husband and me to review the second episode in this fascinating two-parter, “The Right Choice, Part 2.” Now that both parts are in, we assess Eugene’s behavior and its lasting implications, Katrina’s reactions to the situation, and how Whit’s storyline provides a curious parallel to the main plot. And also roosters. And organic food.

REVIEW — “The Right Choice, Part 1”

As a breath of fresh air, Ryan and I head back to a more nostalgic era of AIO to review the next episode in the post-Blackgaard arc, “The Right Choice, Part 1.” Throughout our gleeful raving over the episode, we discuss “who started it,” if jet lag is a poor excuse, consequences for immaturity, Brandon’s character arc, and parallels between this episode and both of our love lives. It’s the longest and deepest review we’ve done so far.

REVIEW — “Harley Takes the Case, Parts 1 and 2”

Finally released five months after its recording!  During an “interim” period back in June 2020, Ryan and I sat down to review “Harley Takes the Case, Parts 1 and 2.”  In this review, we discuss Harley’s character development, how this episode compares to “Missing Person,” what the moral actually is, and how all the early AIO kid characters sound like toddlers.  And we also finally read your comments!

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.

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

REVIEW — “The Ties That Bind, Part 2”

 

We made it to the fountain pen!  As “The Ties That Bind” reviews with Ryan continue, we discuss analogies about Biblical marriage, villains dropping clues, good spirituality, and Hadley.  In addition, we further evaluate Paul McCusker’s writing and speculate on its evolution through the rest of the arc.

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