Is it just me, or did anyone else expect the episode to cut before the last scene? I don't really know why I felt this way, but for some reason I did. Part 4 was amazing though.
I got this...

So I have been thinking as I play Marvel Ultimate Alliance 2, that Thor sounds just like Jim Cummings. I finally checked and he is played by him... so yay! \:D/ Kind of odd to have a Norse god sound like Pete, but oh well. \:D/

I liked how well Rachael did with the being scared. It reminded me of "The Imagination Station Revisited"

I don't like Darien's Rise as much as I thought I would.It ends to soon in places,and Shane Baumel needs to act more instead of sounding like he's reading words.
I think it will be better to hear it as a whole like Radio Theatre.

These eps are more like the Truth Chronicles than normal AIO stories.But otherwise,I love hearing who they got to play the characters
I love the ToO!

I thought Truth Chronicles WAS normal AIO stories??? Then again, I haven't listened to the Truth Chronicles, so how would I know. I liked part 5 of Darien's Rise, but ditto to the above comment about Shane Baumel-I like Rachael's acting better too.

The AIO staff has decided to make the Truth Chronicles not canon (with the exception of Kidsboro). Neither do they have official episode numbers. So Episode 642 was "The Imagination Station Revisited 2," 643-645 are Kidsboro 1, 2, and 3, and 646 is "Darien's Rise 1."

And here is the sixth episode of Darien's Rise! Oh, and it has a parental warning for ten and under at the beginning of the episode.

Haha. That's funny. I'll probably listen to this tomorrow. But If it's for the reasons I thought it was, I was hoping that they'd get to that scene in the previous episode. I remember reading the scene when I was younger and being like, "woah. crazy"...almost as bad as Arin's Judgement scene where the guy gets struck by the explosion as the kid ducks underneath the car and watches him die.

It's funny that they put a parental warning on one episode. If some parents don't want their kids listening to it, then, well, that really wrecks the whole series for the kid, doesn't it?

I was curious how they would address that. I read as far as the killing last night and wondered how they would tackle the issue of the murders. The bug remark reminds me of something familiar. "You get in my way and I will squash you like the little bug you are"

Yeah, I was wondering about that too. If they decide to do an adaption of Arin's Judgment, I'll be really curious to see how they'll handle the whole annihilation of the world and all the sickness and death, not to mention Wade's dream involving the skeleton. And also the fact that one boy brings destruction on an entire world.

Which Bible story is Arin's Judgment, may I inquire?

Arin's Judgment is the story of Noah.

Rawr, I'm really NOT liking "Kyle's" acting in part 6...I think I could do a better job at acting Kyle, and I'm a girl. :P
