784: Cycle of Fear

Postby Bren » Sat Mar 12, 2016 2:02 pm



When Eva Parker reveals that she doesn't know how to ride a bike, the whole family pitches in to help her overcome her anxiety. Meanwhile, Olivia and Matthew must face fears of their own.


Rate and discuss!

I found that I identified with Matthew having experienced a situation like that recently.

3.5, which I'll go ahead and round up to 4. A decent episode, but lacking in believability. All the same, I enjoyed it. I haven't listed to AIO in a long time. I had practically forgotten the new album was coming out, so thanks for the reminder, Bren!

One thing I did notice, is that Matthew's new voice is a much better match for Zach Callison! As one of the people who were incredibly disappointed by his replacement for 58 & 59, I'm very pleased with the change.
Photobucket was evil and made third-party display a premium feature. Then they increased the size and obnoxiousness of the placeholder advertisement encouraging me to upgrade. Thus, this text signature.
I'll catch up to Bren!

I believe this may very well be the best Parker family episode yet. Very relateable. This is probably one the few recent AIO episodes that had me laughing all the way through and laughing very hard in some places.

I actually listened to this episode and The Case of the Ball Cap Hero and never noticed that Gunnar was not playing Matthew until later. Although I thought he was just okay in 58 & 59, Justin sounds almost identical, but with more energy. Great replacement!

4 and 1/2 stars (rounded up to 5 stars for me in the poll)
I love the ToO!
