Stage Fright Review

Stage Fright

Right away I was drawn in with Barrett singing about trombones. Definitely a song I'll have to remember. But that's sorta the only thing that sticks out to me in this episode. After Game for a Mystery, I wasn't exactly thrilled with the thought of another Jones and Parker Mystery. But thought maybe it wouldn't be along the same lines as that. Perhaps it would be done...differently? Nope. This episode in particular had more of a Scooby Doo twist. It reminded me of Scooby Doo in part because of the phantom, but also because Matthew (the sidekick) was scared while Emily wasn't. Kinda the same way that Scooby and Shaggy (sidekicks) are always scared and the other three usually aren't for long. But like Scooby Doo, it had this predictability to it. That someone is creating the phantom so everyone would leave for one reason or another. The way that these mysteries point in one direction leading you to believe that it's one person, only to disprove it the next, isn't exactly to my liking. I'm more of a fan of the type that you can collect clues with the detective, and can predict who it is.  Another point, both mysteries tied a bird into the culprit somehow....

Theme: 3/5
Humor: 3/5
Music: 4/5
Interest Level: 2/5
"Like" rating: 2/5

Total rating: 2.5/5 (Not a bad episode persay, but it's not on my top 100 list)


  1. That was really stupid how Matthew and the teacher and all the kids were scared and EMily wasn't Good review. (I'm not sure if I'm seeing all of it though. There's a blue thing on the screen)
