  • One of the nastier episodes...involving a cursed mulcher....

    This installment involves a cursed mulcher that produces money in quantities based on the monetary value of the victims that are fed to it by an unscrupulous gardener. Needless to say, this is one of the more gruesome episodes in the series as Micki and Ryan try and retrieve the mulcher even as it grinds up more victims. The episode wraps up with a nice twist as the evil gardener gets his just reward ( nice remark by Jack about it, hehe...)

    Overall, a pretty good episode. Nice acting by those depicted though the subplot about Micki's former boyfriend really didn't need to be there as the actor added little to the episode.
