Incredible episode! I loved it.
8 July 2017 | by waitunghSee all my reviews

This may be 'filler' but in the context of what this show is all about, it's utterly brilliant story telling, mixing comedy, tragedy and pathos. It gives the best and most extended narrative on the relationship between humans and creatures of myth and how the actions of one influences the action of the other. It doesn't hurt that the story contained within is a rollicking good one that I didn't want to end, even though, like all the best stories, it's slightly familiar. The twists and turns of Nessie McGowan were touching and hilarious by turns and the close of her story was very poetic. In my opinion, the most enjoyable episode so far.
