Storyline

Following the death of his elderly grandmother, Mike Franks travels with his wife Pam and 10-year-old daughter Amy to his grandmother's old house where he accidentally finds an old letter hidden behind a portrait of George Washington. A morbid letter supposedly written by Washington about killing and eating children. In trying to verify the authenticity of the letter, Mike becomes the target of 'the Washingtonians'; a secret society of various and powerful people who protect the secret life of the 'Father of the Country', and whom, like Washington... are cannibals.

back then in 2007 trash nowadays watchable
12 June 2013 | by (Midian) – See all my reviews

This must be the episode with the most mixed emotions. For some the question is how it was possible to add a famous person into such a story. But hey, we are at this writing 6 years later and just look what happened, Abraham Lincoln was in trouble with vampires, and in another flick he had to fight zombies. Snow White came in trouble with monsters and I can go on and on.

Seeing it now I rather enjoyed it but it wasn't one of the best episodes. The reason lays in the fact that the Washingtonians looked a bit ridiculous.

The story itself was, again, rather simple. A man finds a letter behind a painting of George with supposedly was written by George stating that he was a cannibal. Once people from the town the man and his family just moved in do know he got the letter in comes the Washingtonians to get back the letter so history remains the same.

But I had a few laughters here and there, when at the diner suddenly the family are looking at the people surrounding them eating spare ribs, but it looked like they were all eating people. And when they are talking to the 10 year old daughter they also looked like she was eatable. And the end surely delivers an inside joke with the new dollar bill.

Maybe if I had seen it in 2007 I would have hate it too but nowadays things are changed and it was okay but not above average due the silly looks of the Washingtonians. They just looked so cheap.
