  • Well plotted but uninspiring

    Coming as it did after the big 150th episode, "Scry Hard" was disappointing. But maybe that's not a fair comparison.

    The dialogue, though not memorable, was funny in places. The plot was coherent and offered occasional insights. Paige's boredom and Leo's lack of purpose throughout the episode set up the ending well, when Leo agreed to become headmaster of Magic School (a smart decision on the part of the writing staff). It was also nice seeing Piper and Leo spend so much time together.

    Some of the plot elements lacked originality, however: Zankou taking over the manor, Piper and Leo being shrunk. But the most troublesome part of the episode was the inconsistent way in which the Shadow was portrayed. In previous episodes, even though the Nexus was neutral, the Shadow was always evil. Cole had no trouble taking in the Shadow in "The Importance of Being Phoebe," even though both good and evil were in the house. This disrepect for the show's history marred an otherwise good (if not great) episode.
