Acceptable, but the show still hadn't hit it's stride yet
4 March 2009 | by movieman_kevSee all my reviews

In order to retrieve a cursed pen that has the power to make the written word into a reality, Ryan and Micki disguise themselves as monks and infiltrate the monastery where the pen and it's owner resides.

This was one of the worser episodes of the show. It hasn't yet hit it's stride that it would in just a few episodes. Why Micki would be so skeptical about people who can tell the future, after she just battled a demonic doll is beyond me, as is how any red-blooded male would be fooled into thinking she was a guy. But those qualms aside the idea of the cursed item for this episode was intriguing even if there wasn't too much use made of it. Again I feel the need to reiterate that while Friday the 13: the series was a very cool show, it didn't really hit the ground running that well, but in subsequent episodes it'll start to really shine. So stick with it.

My Grade: C
