This week's episode starts with a discussion of the merits of the Aussie cannibal flick "Dying Breed," and ends with a debate about which one of us is most American.

Nina's sister set off to the Tasmanian outback eight years ago in search of proof of the elusive Tasmanian Tiger. She never returned. There are rumors other mythical creatures living in Tasmania as well. In 1824, Alexander Pearce, also known as "The Pieman" escaped from the British Penal Colony held upon the island. Pearce was known to be a violent cannibal, proven by the fact that he escaped with seven other prisoners and only he survived, albeit with chunks of human flesh in his pockets.
