    Penn & Teller: Bullshit

    I'm sure a bunch of you have seen this show, if you haven't, some people uploaded a bunch of episodes to google video.

    Such a great show.

    That's an interesting show. Properly named. It's mostly just a bunch of preachy bullshit. They have a few facts here and there, but they take great liberty with those facts. They're better doing magic tricks, I think.

    Bullshit and Dead Like Me were the only reasons I paid for Showtime for as long as I did. Whatever you can say about their facts, the time when they got a bunch of environmentalists to sign a petition to ban dihydro-monoxide was a thing of beauty.

    Well you obviously don't watch their show thoroughly.

    Omg, Dead Like Me was awesome, I'm so pissed it never went into a third season.

    Delores Herbig was one of the greatest characters in modern television history. Discuss.

    Well you obviously don't watch their show thoroughly.
    Just two episodes. I honestly couldn't take much more than that. Sure, they may have some decent opinions, but they really put themselves on an elevated pedestal expressing them. I watched the one about public smoking, which was the linked one. They essentially spent 20 minutes repeating themselves about how the facts aren't there to support the anti-public smoking people. Then they went on hinting about how disallowing smoking in public places would somehow turn this country into some sort of fascict nation. They certainly had evidence supporting that claim. Second I watched what they had to say about the bible. I'll give them credit for trying, but I'd question their belief that reading it would turn anyone atheist. Those guys are the kind of people who tell little children that Santa doesn't exist.

    All in all, they reminded me a little of those Micheal Moore movies, which have a lot of factual backing, but silently make radical claims that have absolutly no backing at all. Maybe watching another 3-4 of their episodes would prove me wrong, but I don't think I care enough to stomach that.
