From the description of this episode many fans comments portrayed to the effect of "Story telling to teach a lesson? Sound familiar?" And in some ways I agree, red does have several features similar to Bernard; such as a handy man, relating to the kids, and using entertaining figures of speeches. But is that to say that Red is Bernard's replacement? I wouldn't go that far,but some would say that.
Right away we hear from Red Hollard in this episode. That made me happy. The last time we heard from Red was in Wooton's Broken Pencil Show. I liked seeing the kids working together on a project. In the scene with Camilla and Matthew breaking the oscilloscope we see more of Camilla's athletic side. I really like the chemistry between the Parker kids in this episode. The kids and the family are really developing nicely. Whit's little bit with the free ice cream for Camilla is classic Whit for you. He knew that Camilla broke the oscilloscope, but gave her free ice cream anyway. I liked Red's story alot. Even though when we hear story's from Bernard's we're used to hearing different voices, and sounds effects. I also like the fact that it's a parable from the bible, told in Red's own way. The approach made in this episode was good. You get camilla, red's story, more Camilla, and then more Red's story. Red's expressions are amazing.
The themes in this album revolve around love and different angles on love and 1 Corinthians 13. It's so appropriate because forgiving and loving and be so hard to do at times. This episode reminds us to ask forgiveness and not just to try to forgive others.

A good episode overall. More reviews to come. Kinda trying to get caught up so I can review Never For nothing soon. And for now that's all from Freddy Jay.
