EPISODE 36 - TANGO AND CASH

#GuiltyPleasures appreciates that it's Christmas time. And while there's plenty of Christmas movies to choose from, we simply cannot ignore the glaring hole in our episode list so far. That's right, we're talking the insanity that is Tango and Cash. Framed by their ruthless arch-nemesis, a mismatched LAPD crime-fighting duo has to put its differences aside to even the score with the evil kingpin who put them behind bars once and for all.
