Low budget clever episode.
2 August 2006 | by TOMNELSee all my reviews

I actually think that if this episode was made today it could be much improved on. The giant spiders in this look like cardboard because of lack of funding. In this episode, we meet a poor girl and her mom living in a trailer park. The girl wants to get married but her mother never approves. When she does get married, she learns the secret of her family and why she never met her father. She's a black widow spider (and I suppose a Black Widow). Once she marries him and consummates her love she kills him, but has a pregnant stomach to show for it. Nice ending, low budget. Can be found on TFTD vol. 6.

My rating: Excellent episode. 21 mins. TV PG V
