10 years of wine, women, and wolf crotches with "The Victor Continental Show"
The Victor Continental Show has been lauded with many superlatives over its impressive decade-long run.

But perhaps nothing captures the essence of The Victor Continental Show with more precision, or more insight, than labeling it a "Tijuana Crime Scene."
