Preview: Private Eyes goes medieval

So, Private Eyes, fans, how do you feel about the way Angie and Shade’s relationship has shaken out so far? Clearly, Angie is still hurting from seeing Mel over at his house, hence the thinly-veiled jabs at him. For his part, Shade seems for the most part clueless, though he’s picking up on a certain vibe from his business partner.

In this Sunday’s new episode of Private Eyes, Angie and Shade head to Medieval Times. Here’s what Global says about “Long Live the King,” written by Thomas Pound and directed by Charles Officer:

Shade and Angie are hired by the “King” from Medieval Times after he believes he’s been poisoned. Initially doubtful of the King’s story – and weary of his refusal to break character – they soon get onside once they go undercover and see just how cutthroat the Middle Ages can be.

And, as always, a few more tidbits of info from me after watching a screener.

Samantha Wan kills with her comedy
Adding Zoe to Everett Investigations was the best decision Angie and Shade have made so far. Samantha Wan’s frantic portrayal of Zoe is hilarious and her comic timing is perfection; both are showcased this week. And her Sticky Note game is strong.

Rob Ramsay in a role fit for a King
I’ve been a fan of Rob Ramsay’s since I saw him on Blue Mountain State and then on The Thundermans. Here he’s super-annoying—and sidesplitting funny—playing Bob Sterling, a.k.a. King Lucien, the Medieval Times monarch who refuses to break character, frustrating Angie and Shade during their investigation.

Double entendres aplenty
This being a medieval setting, Thomas Pound’s script boasts plays on words, double entendres and discussions about men’s longswords. Yes, I laughed. Yes, I am 47 years old.

Private Eyes airs Sundays at 9 p.m. ET/PT on Global.
