These are BAD nuns...
26 May 2011 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

This is an episode that might just make Catholics cringe, so you might want to think twice about this one, as this episode is about a group of very bad nuns! It begins with Olive's favorite nun at the nunnery falling to her death from the belltower. Was it murder or suicide?! So, she convinces Emerson to investigate. And when he arrives, so does Chuck and Ned--in the guise of Fathers Mucahey and Dowling as well as Sister Christian! After reviving the dead Sister, they still have a problem. While they know she did not commit suicide, they have no idea who pushed her.

Their investigation turns up a lot of bad stuff about the nuns, as many of them routinely break their vows and the dead nun turns out to be a jerk. As I said, some might take offense, though it is funny--and well-written.

Oh, and, by the end of the show Chuck learns something BIG. What is it? Tune in and see.
