A warlock and witch battle over a winning lottery ticket number!
22 March 2009 | by (Petersburg, Virginia) – See all my reviews

This "TFTD" episode titled "Snip Snip" is quite storybook and funny and offbeat in an odd and crazy manner. It's about a warlock who thinks he's mastered up the winning lottery ticket number thru the devil though he's off one number though. And a witch and part time hairdresser(played by character and guest TV and movie actress Carol Kane)finds she has the winning number! And this is where the episode gets interesting as in a comical way the witch and warlock lay claim to the ticket which strikes up a wicked battle of wits and clever. And the episode ends kind of silly and predictable. Nothing really bad but yet not one of the better episodes due to it's offbeat and funny story.
