Goofs run wild in the race!
12 July 2017 | by cbest-84323See all my reviews

This episode was really a part two of the previous "Bunny" Any episode starring Nellie and Harriet is a must watch...There was a nice mix of suspense and humor that make this a strong episode...

I noticed a few goofs.....for one. Notice when Nellie is crying in her bedroom...in the background there is a flower pattern on the wallpaper. The next scene shift to Nels and Harriet's bedroom...its the exact room....same wallpaper but different furniture arrangement

Second, when Harriet is test riding the horse in Sleepy Eye....the rider is obviously a stunt double...pretty clear.

Last, when Nellie is showing Laura the silver bowl/trophy you can see the crew in the reflection..

Also not sure why the Olsen's would allow Nellie back on a horse only days after recovering from her injury ....especially to enter a race....

Overall, an entertaining episode with lots of charm! Anytime Laura can put Nellie in her place...is a good thing!
