REVIEW — “The Ties That Bind, Part 5” (ft. Ryan Matlock)

We are back again continuing The Ties That Bind! In Part 5, as the plot continues to move forward, Ryan and I start to cement our critiques of the series as we discuss the vague dialogue, Miss Adelaide’s strange characterization, the faceless opposition, Wooton’s trust of Hadley, reconciliation (and Morrie), and steamed hams!

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

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 — “A New Era, Parts 1 to 3” (ft. Wyatt Jackson)

Back in August, Wyatt Jackson finished covering the Leonard Meltsner Saga with his co-host on his podcast Adventures Into Odyssey, but without covering “A New Era, Parts 1 to 3.” The three-parter was crying out to be discussed, so I asked Wyatt to come on to talk about it. In this review, we discuss Leonard’s character development, God’s calling, and more.

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 — “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.
