Is this story worth your time, or is it just a dog?
I don't know if anyone ever actually reads these episode reviews, but if you're aware of my feelings for the first half of this two-parter then nothing is improved by this concluding part of the tale.
Brendan Fletcher plays Grady Tucker, a young boy who is forced to live in Fever Swamp with his sister and parents. Things get hairier in this episode, of course, and that should come as no surprise to anyone who reads the name of the tale. Unfortunately, it's not enough to make it memorable.
Director William Fruet and writer Neal Shushterman either don't know what to do with the source material (by R. L. Stine, as usual) or have been saddled with one of the lesser books to work with. Having never read the original works, I can't say which it is.
Fletcher is, once again, the only reason to watch this story. He's enjoyable enough in the lead role, improving what could have been a surprisingly flat and unexciting two-parter.
Here's hoping that season two starts well and then does enough to make this tale a fade memory.
