  • I just love it when Ophelia gets mad.

    I watched this episode On Demand so amny times because I like it when Ophelia gets mad. She is really awesome. And the way she handled the play by calling it Stalk the Rocksical was funny. She is my favorite character because of this episode. I hope they show more episodes where Ophelia gets mad.
  • In this episode magical creatures take a holiday for a little R&R. June does the same thing and attends an art camp

    This episode reflected a bit more on Roger and Ophelia than June. I thought this episode was hillarious. Seeing Ophelia as a director of a play and Roger playing lead roll had me laughing frome begging to end. Even though June was kidnapped it was funny seeing her kidnappers bicker the whole time about how he hates holiday. It kept me prettey entertained the whole time, and watching Monroe get fat the whole time and having to run on a tread mill at the end had me laughing so muchmoreless
  • Ophelia and Roger get some much needed air-time in this epsiode...

    This episode gets some special mention mostly because June and her job take a backseat to what’s going on in the drama camp. It seems that the Giants were there only to take June out of the picture, which isn’t a bad thing because we get to know more about her friends, mainly Roger and Ophelia.

    It starts out with June and her friends going to Drama Camp during a magical holiday called Edipan. This holiday is a sacred pact where all magical creatures both good and evil stop using magic of a day or week. While at camp, the director of the play brakes her leg and is unable to go on. Ophelia take over and directs the play, also recasting everyone. June on opening night gets kidnapped by giants, and Roger has to take over for her. June beats up the giants and makes it in time to catch the end of the play. She takes over Roger's old part of village idiot.

    This episode showed a lot more of the supporting cast of characters then any other episodes yet, especial Ophelia and Roger. Roger also gets his moment to shine in this episode as he takes over for June in the play and turns out to be good. It’s good to see Roger doing something that doesn’t make him look like a complete idiot. Ophelia also get her moment to shine as well when she takes the job as director and does quite a good job at it. In fact, she takes the job so seriously that she ends up scaring the hole cast into doing what she wants and becoming quite intence in a couple of scenes. It shows that she can make quite a good leader if need be or a competitive control freak. Monroe also gets used it the epsiode a little differntly. Mostly he gets really fat and is almost unable to move. Which is quite funny.

    I felt that the giant's were only there to, as I said eariler, to take June out of the picture. The giant's themselves weren't boring at one might expect. They were actually quite good villians and had more then a couple funny lines. I was also liked the fact that they had June's fight with the giant mirror that of the play, switching between the two.

    This is defently a must see episode. It fleshs out two characters that usually get over looked or made fun of. Plus, we get to learn a little more about the Magical Community in the fact that there is a holiday where all the creatures take a vacation. The closing of the epsiode where Monroe was running on the treadmil after getting tremedously fat was hillarous. All in all, it a defient must see.moreless

  • TRIVIA (2)

    • June demonstrates visible strain while lifting the fattened-up Monroe before fleeing. Sure, he's comically overweight, but June has previously displayed far greater feats of strength with much less apparent effort. She shouldn't have any trouble with him.

    • Have you noticed all the directors wears the same suit Ophelia wears in this episode? Why?

      Zing zing zing-

      Madame: No, no, no, try something more outspoken child, let me FEEL the song! (gets up on stage, to piano player) Donny put it on C minor baby! (piano intro plays, then she sings)
      Clang, clang, clang, went the trolley,
      Ding, ding, ding, went the bell,
      Zing, zing, zing, went my heartstring!
      For the first time I saw you I-Ahhh! (falls)

    • Jody: (singing)

      Roger: But I've only got two lines at the end of the play. I just run out and scream, "Power to the beans! Power to the beans!"
      Ophelia: And if you come in early one more time, I'm gonna cut it down to NO lines. Comprende? Bikers, you're killing me here. You're absolutely killing me.
