The worst of the series?
27 November 2006 | by (TCM's Basement) – See all my reviews

Maybe it's just me but I found this entire episode just dreadful. From the laborious "Dickens-esque" opening that featured the future Mr. Roper in fake beard seemingly awaiting to go on stage to play Scrooge, to the sickening sweet Priscilla (volunteer social worker) whose father was a toymaker but has no clue as to what's going on even though she lives above the toy store. Voltaire, who has been mute to this point, suddenly can speak and Loveless doing his usual song and dance routine on a toy carousel, not to be outdone by Artemus who also decides to sing in this episode. It's never explained how Loveless and Voltaire can continuously break out of prison. I think this was the fourth time the did just that this season. Just bad.
