The cursed mulcher takes in a body and gives out American currency said to be dated 1937. American currency isn't dated. Rather, it has series based on the signatures of the Secretary of the Treasury and the Treasurer of the United States. There was no series 1937 for American currency.
There was, however, a Canadian series 1937. Filming was based in Canada, but American currency is shown. See more »
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.
