Margaret is really worried about her father. Ever since he lost his job, he spends all of his time locked in the basement. What is going on down there? He is just doing a little plant testing... harmless really. When Dad does come up for air, he acts strange and is only getting stranger. In fact, he's not acting like himself at all. All he ever says is: "Stay out of the basement!" So when her Mom goes out of town, Margaret's worry turns to fear. Especially when she and her brother discover the root of the problem. Written by

The final premise, where Margaret and Casey cannot choose which "father" to spray with the weed killer makes no sense. As one of them is human and would not be affected by weed killer at all, they could simply spray both of them rather than waiting to choose one. See more »

Although there was obviously enough material to make this story into a two-parter, I must say that "Stay Out Of The Basement" doesn't REALLY feel as if it needed to be split in such a way. Having said that, it's enjoyable enough and I was entertained by both halves of the tale.
Margaret (Rebecca Henderson) and Casey (Blake McGrath) are still worried about what their father (Judah Katz) is up to in his basement, but with this being the second part of the two-parter all is eventually revealed.
All involved continue to have fun, with Katz getting the best bits, and director William Fruet keeps the balance between humour and tension just right.
It's always hard to discuss episodes without spoiling things, but the good thing about this one is that there are a number of enjoyable little moments throughout so even if you do see the end coming a mile away, unlike me, then you'll still have a lot of fun while events are unfolding.
