  • Though unoriginal, it was still a decent episode.

    The Tale of the Lonely Ghost was slightly boring and barely held my attention. Not really one of the greatest episodes, but still a decent one to say the least. You can feel the girl's pain (I mean Amanda, not the ghost) and the pain of Nanny. This episode held many decent actors, but I wish the direction for the episode would have been better and the writing a bit more original. When the other girl becomes stuck in the mirror, it could have been a cool, two-part episode in which the second storyline covers what she encounters and how they got her out. Or, maybe, the little ghost could have been trapped in the mirror the whole time instead of being dead. A good episode, but rather boring and unoriginal.
