  • This could have been the point where the show jumped the shark. . .luckily it didn't.

    To me, it all seemed too detective for me. The girls were all trying to be spies and catch criminals. I don't think that whole idea was needed. I don't think I can remember one funny part of this episode. It was all too just alternate reality and unfunny.
