not as bad as the previous episode, but almost
5 March 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A cursed teacup who chokes the life-force of those that drink from it ,via ivy, and grants it's owner rejuvenation is the evil antique this week and both Micki and Ryan believe that a new up and coming rocker has it in her possession, so they go about getting it back.

While this episode is better than "Cupid's Quiver", it's not by much as the negatives (Birdy, an elderly social worker with an unseemly crush on Jack and a 'cutesy' little homeless girl being the chief offenders) outweigh the positives (the rock version of "I'm a Little Teapot" wait maybe that could be construed as a negative too). It was nice to see Jack get more screen time in this episode. But sadly I feel the need to reiterate the show has still yet to find it's groove (it will in a few episodes though so stick with it)

My Grade:D+
