enjoyable episode except for one part
12 March 2012 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

This was a very interesting plot twist, but the one thing that annoyed me is when the writer in the show talks to Ruby about his trip to Nepal, where he comments that lemurs were running all over a temple in Nepal. Immediately I remembered that lemurs are only found naturally in Madagascar and so I was disappointed that the writers seemed to have been sloppy with their research on this topic. This show is becoming one of my favourites and I particularly enjoy Robert Carlyle's character. He does an excellent job of portraying Rumpelstiltskin. It took me awhile to figure out who he was, but I did eventually realize he was from the Full Monty. Overall this show is great and keeps me coming back each week.
