Farewell, Kids of Kidsboro.

Hidden in all this dust lies the hypothesis of many AIO fans. What do you feel is sure to happen, and what should stay buried? Chris says keep listening, we say speculate.

In the episode "Unfair Game", Marvin appears with Ryan, indicating that they are the same age.

Marvin Washington is the same age as Ryan Cummings. They will be in the episode "Unfair Game" with...
Jason Whitaker and David Parker.

I don't think they have to be the same age. I think they're close in age, but not the same. Marvin and all the kids his age left the show in Album 50, and they were all in late middle school. (Listen to those voices and tell me that they're sixth graders. Eighth graders I can buy—especially since they've clearly already been through a couple of years of middle school according to show continuity—but sixth graders?) Ryan is still in middle school as of Album 57, because he's playing on the middle school basketball team. Ryan and all the kids of Kidsboro are indicated to be part of the new generation, while Marvin and his peers are indicated to be a part of the previous one, implying to me that they're older.

Besides, I like the idea of Marvin being a little older and sort of taking Ryan under his wing, for the same reason why I like how enthusiastic he was at the idea of taking in Kelly in "The Chosen One". It adds some depth to his character, and to me it's a bit more realistic than everybody being the same age.
it's not about 'deserve'. it's about what you believe. and i believe in love

Can you explain what you mean by that? What older characters are the same age as the current group? Is this referring to the child characters, or to the adult roles
Ryan Cummings and Nelson, specifically, are in the same classes as Matthew and Olivia and such.

Hm, yes that WOULD be interesting to see... Would they be the same age? I bet Ryan is a year or two older than Buck but he would be a great encouragement for Buck since they both had really hard childhoods.

Well, we were wrong. ALL 3 of the characters that Pound Foolish mentioned in his post are coming back or have already come back. Also, Valerie and Ryan are in high school, as Valerie is in Jules and Buck's grade in "Friend or Foe".
