Treeplanting / PhD / Frankenstein / 'Tis


Eavesdrop on a phone call between Neil and James in a concept episode that covers a lot of ground--from a clearcut in British Columbia to an apartment in Toronto. Topics range from Frankenstein and Frank McCourt to Panasonic Shockwaves and "binder knocking." Also, peak behind the curtain as the boys continue their losing battle against the outro.
