Final words and observations

Not a note worthy episode other than it was the first featuring a castle.  The gang hasn’t yet reached peak form as they fumble around, get caught up in tracks solving a mystery where there were none.  It loyally debunks the supernatural with trick mirrors and very impressive illusions.  In spite of its flaws, its worthy to pick out 5 things you may have missed watching “Hassle in the Castle”.
