Final thoughts

Not my favorite villain, mystery, or technology.   And not since “Hassle in the Castle“, have we been deprived of seeing the mystery of sunken gold.  We’re even deprived of a Globetrotter game.  “Lochness Mess” is a low key mystery with family, innocent humor, and comedic timing of The Globetrotters.   But very little else.
