How it works:
If you want to join, go ahead! All you have to do is watch the episode for the day, then if you want do a post on it, or just comment on someone Else's post about it!
In my reviews for this series, I am only going to list the top ten featured characters in that episode.

My guarantee: On ALL of my reviews there are NO spoilers unless it says so. But the comments will have spoilers.

Thanks for reading! Please comment telling me what you think of this episode!



  1. This episodes is fun and not so fun!

    KATE WHY DO YOU ALWAYS GETS IN TROUBLE!!! Robin keeps saving her.

    Don't like the new tax man, he's creepy. But I do like his son, he is kind and he doesn't want to listen to his father.

    Kate and Allan gets captured and they are locked up in a storage full with birds. And they make funny jokes about themselves. :) Allan would be perfect for Kate, but we all know she chooses Robin. Don't like that. Allan is much more funner than Robin.

    And Much! :D He is also funny in this episode. He really likes Kate, but she doesn't like him.
    You never wash yourself, you are smelly and she also sad something else, can't remember what. Hilarious!

    Tuck brings the son of Rufus on good thoughts and he fights back against his father. Rufus eventually dies.

    I actually liked this episode.

    1. Oh yes! Definitely!

      Argh!!!! Kate!!! Would you stay out of the way and out of trouble!!!!

      He is very creepy. His son is kind and wants to do good and doesn't want to see people suffer!

      I love that scene, Kate and Allan would be such a good couple!!! Allan is way funnier than Robin, especially in season 3. Why did Robin have to encourage Kate!!??

      Much, he is so funny. But I don't understand why he loves Kate, he has forgotten about Eve! Much, I'm not happy with you right now. But...he is hilarious!!!!

      It was sad that Rufus died, he was creepy, but maybe he could have gotten better! But I'm so glad that Edmund is so kind!!!

      I liked this episode also!!

      Thank you for your comment!

  2. I liked this one. Although it had its moments that were not really likeable, without those included it is a good episode. Kate and Allan enprisoned, insulting eachother.
    'I think your neck's too long.'
    'My neck!? My nose maybe.' :) They were so funny. That was the only time I liked Kate. And then Kate joins the gang *very deep sigh* (why didn't she just stay in the village or at least be less annoying).

    1. Yes, I do wonder why they have to include the bad things, just the good things make such a good story!!
      Kate and Allan, <3 they would be so good together! He made her feel so much better!
      :D Allan, you are so funny!! Yes, it was one of the only times I, too, liked Kate.
      She couldn't stay in the village because if she did the Sheriff would have killed her. And they let her join the gang because some people (coughMuchcoughcoughAllancough) like her.

      Thanks for talking!
