So dunno why it was listed as the 13th ep but I found a not bad preair torrent version online and couldn't help myself from downloading it even tho I would have preferred the inheritance one.
It was pretty much a regular episode. For the first time Daphne doesn't have a Daphneism (or whatever people are starting to call her quirks on the Internet) so I was very disappointed. The whole thing was weird since it featured Fred losing it a bit cause of his crime-solving skills obsession. The sandwich joke was funny at first but it got reeeeeally boring and the shark with lasergun too. Monster was bored-drawn looking and story was kinda weak. Expected a lot more 6.7/10
Sorry folks, I'm one of the "daphneism" haters, so I'm actually even more excited about this episode because of that!
I have to say that whilst I find them funny they do risk becoming something akin to Star Trek Voyager's 'particle of the week' or even worse a deus ex machina like device that is central to solving the mystery in some way.
An okay episode. Stealin' Stan was a scary monster, but I didn't fancy the lack of "Daphneism"/"Daphne du Jour". Fred had some insane knowledge on the criminal mind! The first scenes with Shaggy were... a little... uncomfortable... with Fred forcing his arm in Shaggy's mouth.... But other than that, the tuna sandwich gag was hilarious!

The Daphneism is that she's stealing Fred's sandwiches. Major out of place trust issues in this episode. This and "Game of Chicken" are the only eps I have problems with (although I didn't completely dislike the latter).

It's nice that Fred apologised to Shaggy, but Daphne should've apologised to Fred. She says that Fred was so convincing in his accusations of Shaggy, which must have been from the moment he first accused him. Maybe you can say that she kinda looked guilty, but she may have also been drawn into what Fred was saying, which means she has the attention span of a fish. Not the finest moment of Daphne.
i liked this one - with the Austin Powers-like defense schemes and general layout. the ending kinda left everything up in the air though. sam, as a falsely convicted person would be in line for millions in compensation for being railroaded.
It was interesting that Fred had a quirk this time!
