Zapped Season 3 Ep. 3: Popcorn

The awesome third season of Zapped returns with it’s third episode – Popcorn- where Brian (James Buckley) has moved on from being the pub chef and has launched a business selling popcorn. As it turns out, Munty has never experienced popcorn before and it becomes an overnight phenomenon! Some said it’s “the best around and nothing’s gonna ever keep IT down.” Steg (Kenneth Collard) notices this and soon tries to cash in with Steg Corn.

Also, Herman (Louis Emerick) installs a mirror into the pub that also illegally streams all of the local combat from the pits. The fairies are investigating but keep picking fights with their reflections.

Meanwhile Barbara (Sharon Rooney) has become a Tarot reader/servant to a fame hungry spoilt brat dancer named Sadie (Charlotte Beaumont); whilst Howell (Paul Kaye) makes a truth serum for Slasher Morgan (Sally Phillips) that results in an unexpected romantic hook-up!

Also the mighty Protector (Sylvester McCoy) is due to visit – will he like the popcorn?

Verdict: 8/10 Another top episode that not only tightens the plot but also helps grow the land of Munty giving the characters and the audience more to explore. The added threat of what returns to Munty at the end only helps build further interest into Season 3.
