Books vs. movies? Which are better?  We struck down the time old question that divides families and said, Por que no los dos? Yes, that's right. Today we explore the books that were turned into movies. The good, the bad, the ugly, and even the dirty (harry). Well, not that last one...I'm not sure dirty harry ever read a book, but we do mention Die Hard, so close enough.  Anyways, I won't spoil the ending for you. Go listen for yourself. 
The guys go back to the basics (because it had been too long since they did an episode and didn't have a clever idea for a new one) and recommend three new books! James Clavell's: Shogun & Diana Wynn Jones': Howl's Moving Castle and Castle in the Air
I was very lazy editing and getting this episode up. listen its been a hell of a weekend and Monday and frankly year the whole world is insane.
