Reviews - What do customers think about Father Gilbert Mysteries Vol. 3: The Play's the Thing/The Grey Lady (Radio Theatre)?
Disappointed but hopeful Feb 26, 2008
I couldn't wait to listen to these Father Gilbert stories but found the first episode's strangeness and second episode's incomplete ending disappointing. I hope Focus will continue the series to resolve Father Gilbert's private struggles.
Some of the better Episoides Jan 22, 2007
I've have the first two volumes of the Father Gilbert Mysteries and have loved them, so no surprise that I still like this latest one!
Two well-crafted and involving stories that are surprisingly moving Nov 2, 2006
Short little full-cast audio dramas don't usually ring my audiophile's bell. Mostly, I find the music, sound effects, and different performers clunky and awkward, distancing me from the proceedings instead if engrossing me the way one expert narrator reading aloud a rich novel always does.
I have to say, however, that I really enjoyed the two short dramas (each is a bit under an hour) that comprise this "Father Gilbert Mysteries" audio. The sound effects are subtle and nicely orient the listener as to where a scene is set (in a country kitchen, in a hospital room, etc.) and the acting is natural-sounding and understated, with the different actors playing well off each other. The musical cues are more overt, with many sweeping and dramatic cues, yet the music never quite drifts into over-the-top territory and, overall, does a good job underscoring the dramatic proceedings.
Finally, both stories are quite good, more in line with communicating practical life lessons about acceptance, rather than preaching about overtly religious issues. I have to say, though, that some of the happenings and revelations that occur in poor Father Gilbert's life over the course of these two stories would challenge Gandhi's inner reserves of peace let alone a poor country priest's.
Father Gilbert's Last Mystery Mar 17, 2006
The Silver Cord deals with Father Louis Gilbert's mother in a coma and the supposed scribblings she does while not awake. In memoriam deals with a lost love of Father Gilber and a shocking secret . I thought mystery wise they were not the two best Father Gilbert mysteres, that is reserved the Grey Lady and The Play's The Thing. It was well acted and it does have a very surprising ending. The bad part about it is this the last Father Gilber Mystery that Focus on the Family Radio Theatre is doing. They are cutting the Radio Theatre branch and we won't be getting any more high quality radio dramas any more. A good story, and Father Gilbert will be sorely missed.
