Podcast: Corpse Cast – Eps 86

What is the cruelest joke that could have been played on Shane Diablo? Pick a movie for convenience (meaning one that’s on Netflix Instant Streaming) that he watches on Netflix and Mike Cadaver watches on the DVD that he owns. Trouble is that this movie has all the filth scrubbed out of it on Netflix, but has all the delicious sleeze kept in on the DVD that Mike watched. Guess who enjoyed the film more.
