784: Cycle of Fear

Post

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.

I loved Victoria's reaction on the Oddcast to everyone freaking out that Eva doesn't ride a bike. "Hey, I don't ride a bike!" It's really not all that shockingly unheard of, it's unusual but Eva's whole family reacted like she had caught leprosy. Plus, as a non-sports person, I'm sorry, she kept crashing and going through physical pain, she was plainly in danger. With how much she was crashing it didn't seem worth it to me. As in literally, monetarily not worth it, she ended needing an ambulance and stitches. I mean I enjoy bike riding pretty well but yeesh, she wasn't that excited about the idea in the first place.

Just something that amused me. Definitely a pretty good episode though. Funny, relatable. It's also great to see Eva continue to be the first aio mom to finally be a big character. Yay, Odyssey! Keep improving.

Popping in to say that while I haven't heard the episode (I will once I re-subscribe to the OAC, which I will soon), I do appreciate this comment—mostly because I can't ride a bike, either. :anxious: I tried once, and it...well, it didn't end well. Balance and I are not close friends, it seems. :(
it's not about 'deserve'. it's about what you believe. and i believe in love

Yeah, the Parkers are slowly becoming the new Barclays. :D (BTW, this episode reminded me very much of License to Drive, another favorite of mine \:D/)

I haven't heard the episode, but reading the description I was really surprised that she didn't know how to ride a bike, so I think that the family's reaction would make a lot of sense. I've also found that a person is more shocked to find out something odd about a person they know really well than someone they barely know.
