Miners meet a troll in this TV episode
21 June 2015 | by Leofwine_dracaSee all my reviews

FOOLS' GOLD is a quite average episode of the MONSTERS TV show which makes it substantially better than many episodes from the series. In it, three construction workers are exploring some subterranean terrain when they stumble upon a hidden cave packed with golden treasure. Unfortunately for them, the treasure happens to be guarded by a troll.

The presence of the troll is by far the most fun thing about this episode. He's suitably menacing for a family friendly TV show and there are some quite strong scenes where he metes violence out against the human characters. As usual, the production values are pretty poor - the single set location looks REALLY cheap - and the acting is indifferent, but you could do a lot worse.
