We talk about the CSI formula, SVU, and tips for watching violent shows. Finally, after the chainsaw noise we get talking all about a little laid-back crew of asbestos removers in a crumbling asylum. We talk about secret gold coins, ghost possessions, multiple personalities, eye stabbers, GRAVE ENCOUNTERS, a lack of incentive, and much much more in this kooky HEREDITARY-dominated episode of the TEXCHRIS DAVESAW MASSCRE!
