So, it was voted on by you all that I continue posting the reviews. The exact results were 32 "yes" and 10 "no." To those who said no, please know that I will be reposting links to my reviews once they are available to you all. You do not need to avoid the site for the next week, as all of these reviews will be spoiler-free. If anyone for some reason does want to know spoilers for the episodes, you're welcome to email me and I'm happy to share anything about any of the episodes.
Also, the order for these is a bit wacky, it seems. In Spain, The Hex Girls was episode 20, however, all other countries and Amazon seem to agree that Jeff Dunham and Darci Lynne Farmer is the 20th episode. I'm going to go with the majority here and say Jeff and Darci is episode 20, and I can always update this post later if need be.
I will continue to post one review per day!
This was definitely the creepiest episode so far!
Crazy Carl was a super creepy villain, especially when he was following them all around town and popping up in their motel at night. Tons of classic horror elements were used in this episode, which I loved! However, I thought the running gag of everyone thinking Scooby was a dummy and Shaggy was his ventriloquist got old after a while. Crazy Carl looked quite like the Joker, though that wasn't touched upon or referenced in any way beyond his appearance. Crazy Carl's voice kinda sounded like an old 50's gangster or something haha.
I thought it was interesting that Simone was used again in this episode. This is the third time she's been a minor character in an episode.
The old lady and her son (who reminded me of Lurch) were super creepy too, and the chase scene between them in the haunted house with them only amped up the spook-factor for me. I didn't like that they used the door gag again in this episode, it's getting quite old now.
The guest stars were decent as well, but Darci Lynne Farmer seemed to completely overshadow Jeff Dunham in the episode. Jeff hardly got any lines and kinda seemed like he was just there, without any purpose. It was interesting how each of their ventriloquist dummies seemed to be minor characters.
This was a great episode though due to the excellent use of horror elements, so I'm ranking this #4/20.
