    I’m kind of sorry I missed this now. Guess I’ll have to keep an eye out for it next year.

    It will be airing a few times on ABC family soon during their 13 nights of Halloween.

    But I really enjoyed it.

    The only show I watched on tv last night. Too bad it pre-empted The Middle, than I would’ve watched 2 shows.
