Did You Know?


In the syndicated version, Micki and Ryan find Birdie's unconscious body in the park and are arrested when police assume they assaulted her. Jack sees them but manages to get away. In the next scene, he retrieves the cup after tricking Lady Di. In the next scene, Jack shows up a the concert to stop Micki, Ryan and Birdie from making an unnecessary attempt to get the cup. No explanation of how Birdie miraculously recovered, how Micki and Ryan got released from custody or much less why Jack would bring a cursed object so close to where the person they have been trying to get it way from was.

Jack Marshak: Who ate all the chips?
Ryan: [holding up a mousetrap with a dead mouse] I think it was one of your friends.

Jack Marshak: Oh, charming. Right where we cut the bread.

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+
