Aubrey's Bathrobe (504)
(Out of 5 cones):
Summary: A super-Christian
makes Aubrey feel inadequate in her new faith. She tries to find a
way for God to use her.
Using our ability to serve
God (Colossians 3:17)
knew it. I sensed that there would be a new sphere in our orbit...A trout!
How perfect! I told you that the season was right for this move... What
could be more welcoming than an Aubrey with a trout? ... Aubrey, I love your
aura." [Mrs. Young]
an interesting way to begin an AIO episode. A new family moves into Aubrey
Shepard's neighborhood and the parents are not saved. Mrs. Young was
introduced in this episode and her speech was really surprising to hear on
the show. Having an obsessed astrologer on the show may capture the
stupidity of such a lifestyle. AIO has covered the problems with astrology
before but seeing one who practices astrology opens up doors for future
development. There may be some AIO fans whose parents are just like Mrs.
Young, and exposing some of the problems with the belief system of Astrology
may expose the truth to the family. I think it's important that radio drama
delves into certain topics to help many people.
didn't know Connie Kendall had an aunt Beatrice. She seems to have a lot of
relatives because lately she's been mentioning her long-lost relatives that
we've never heard about. In Green Eyes and Yellow Tulips Connie complains
about her yellow sweater that looks like something her "aunt Edna wore
in the the 1800's." It seems rather cliched that Connie keeps
mentioning people she's never talked about before. AIO needs to be more
accurate on the show.
my speculations were correct. Before this episode aired, I suspected that
Aubrey's bathrobe would be used as a fleece. Though I'm not really sure why
the episode is called Aubrey's Bathrobe. She
only uses her bathrobe for less than thirty seconds before the second
commercial break. At the end when the thunder crashed after Aubrey shouted
to the sky, it seemed rather disrespectful towards God. That's just my
opinion, but it may seem like that to other listeners too.
was definitely great to have Bethany Shepard back on the show. Her voice
definitely went through a change since Opportunity
Knocks so she doesn't
have the cute voice she used to have. I think now that Bethany sounds older
the writers should consider that and write her character as a more mature
being. No more crazy talking, no more weirdness. Bethany sounds like a 9-10
year-old now, and 9-10 year-olds begin maturing at that age. Maybe Bethany's
just a rare exception.
importantly, the moral to this episode was very inspiring. When I listened
it captured my heart and I decided that I hadn't been focusing on my
"future focus" as much as I should be. We all can learn lessons
from Aubrey's Bathrobe.
in all, this episode was well done. I give Aubrey's
Bathrobe 3 and 1/2 cones out of 5.
