A misstep after three good to great episodes
25 March 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Micki and Ryan search for an cursed lawn mulcher (kind of akin to the wood-chipper in Fargo) that has the power of spitting out money relative to how rich the person/victim that's fed to it is. It lies in the possession of a gardener's assistant who uses it at first to get out of the debt that he's in before getting greedy. Also the sub-plot about Micki's fiancé, Lloyd (Barclay Hope) comes to a head (good riddance).

After the previous three episodes of the series which progressively got better (Shadow Boxer being a personal fave of mine), this outing was a bit of a letdown to put it diplomatically. The cursed antique was silly, the main villain was too stupid to be menacing in the least & I really didn't care for the sub-plot. Thankfully this was merely a small misstep for the series as a whole, but an unwelcome one.

My Grade: D
