Amazing episode
25 June 2018 | by shane_96See all my reviews

I love the goosebumps TV series and this episode is one of my favourites. The characters are very realistic, especially Gretchen and Clark. The monster was cool and scary, even cute and wonderful in some parts! I loved the location too. The episode was funny, scary, suspenseful, insight into real life, everything you could ask for!
