Fun and exciting episode that's done in a classic kind of way!
14 March 2019 | by blanbrnSee all my reviews

This "AS" episode from season one called "Mummy Daddy" is one that was fun to watch an adventure escape like episode that takes a fun twist and makes all involved happy. It involves an overworked actor playing a mummy on a swamp southern set, who needs to get away to the local hospital before his wife goes into labor. All starts to go crazy when the locals spot him and think he's an actual creature the chase is on, only a different character is on the loose and the episode twist and takes a happy clever turn. Overall well done episode of the series.
