There are spoilers for both shows as we discuss what works, what doesn’t, and what broke our haunted hearts. For our FINAL CUT, we cap off our discussion on Tim W. Burton as we explore the peaks and valleys of the second half of his wavering career. Join us next week for a True Crime episode revolving around the Werewolf of Wysteria—Albert Fish.
