Goofs

The sawing a woman in half illusion is just that - an illusion. Though it appears that half of the woman is in one box and half in the other, in fact she is entirely contained in the top box and the bottom box is empty. Therefore, when the magician is spooked by the ghost early in the show and his saw drifts off-target into the bottom box, his female assistant is in no danger whatsoever - she is squeezed up in the top box. But Melinda jumps up and yells, "stop the trick!", the magician draws out a saw covered with blood, and later Jim is seen patching the girl's legs and saying the cuts are only superficial. The magician's saw would never even have been near the girl's legs. See more »

Carnival setting, but no X-FILES
10 March 2007 | by (Connecticut) – See all my reviews

Oddly enough, this rather colorful episode made little impression on me. And I am not sure why. The spirit of a murdered man seeks revenge on the man he believes killed him. All of this is set on the ground of an old-fashioned carnival, and includes a card reader whom Melinda befriends and who is caught up in the middle of the proceedings. I guess I thought the carnival setting might give us something akin to the old X-FILES episode where Mulder encounters a naked, tattooed guy who chomps down huge globs of live fish. GW is, alas, no match for THE X-FILES. The worst that happens here, as I recall, involves shaking up the card reader's wagon a bit. Oh well, you can't win them all.
