  • Beware the sow!

    This is a very interesting episode about Scottish folklore, one of my favorite episodes. This is one of those episodes that feature kids who are too smart for their own good. The boy was very intelligent for his age and wrote in better cursive than I ever could, and he looks like he’s only 8 years old at the oldest! The monster itself was interesting; its main feature is that it has yellow eyes. The story is well written and keeps the interest, so it isn’t boring. The mood and tone of the entire episode is set up really well to be creepy. It\'s worth seeing.
