Lewis rides again
2 July 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A Halloween party at Curious Goods turns sour when two guests accidentally conjure up the spirit of Lewis Vendredi and he tricks Micki and Ryan into giving him a cursed amulet that will allow him to be resurrected.

"Hellowe'en" is another OK episode. The major highlight is that we're treated to another appearance by Uncle Lewis, and as always, he's up to no good. I really do enjoy his appearances. You can really tell that he's having fun with his devilishly evil character. The storyline provides a different spin on the usual antique fetch quests that would be the overall basis for the show. The dwarf is extremely campy and fun to watch.

However, the bad outweighs the good here. The party guests messing with the crystal ball is just too convenient. It seems to strain credibility that they would have left a crystal ball sitting out downstairs and that the dumb guests would have just happened to stumble upon the secret to using it. By now, Micki, Ryan, and Jack have been around the block at least once so why wouldn't they have put this thing in the vault? I thought this was lame and I could see it coming a mile away.

Jack is too easily fooled by the dwarf. He seems too smart for this and you can tell he's losing patience with this "girl" but he still falls into the trap. The scenes of him being lead to the trap drag on for an eternity. Anybody with a lick of sense can figure out this girl is conning him so why do we need to see ten minutes worth of it? Also, where does this dwarf woman come from in the first place?

I can buy Micki and Ryan being fooled by Lewis since this is their first introduction to him but what I can't buy is how they automatically know what mortuary he went to. Jack, of course, seems to automatically know that they're all hanging out here too. I can't really harp on this too much because all episodes have some events that require this kind of suspension of disbelief.

"Hellowe'en" is not one of my favorites and it's certainly better than most of the episodes to come before it. It will get much better though, so hang in there.
