It's bullsh*t.

Does anyone else watch Penn and Teller's Bullsh*t? It's on Shotime every Friday night at 10pm CST. It's my favourite show on TV. They debunk myths and bullsh*t. They've done Aliens, Motovational speakers, Diets, and Organic food. The deit and organic food was the best show yet. It's surprised me on how groups like Greenpeace are lying to 3rd world countries about GE food. If you have Shotime make sure to watch the show.

Weird you should mention that! I just randomly started watching it this weekend for no reason whatsoever, and let me tell you, that is a really good show. At the end of the Organic Food show I was trying to restrain myself from applauding.

""Unless you and yours are starving, shut up and get a job.""

Oh what a great show. Penn & Teller are quite humorous anyway, but when they start ripping on people and idealogies, it''s even better.

Quite recommended even if you don''t agree with them, because the points and opinions they offer do have validity to them, it''s not just a blind bashing of people and ideas.

Motivational speakers are the worst!

Good grief everybody wants to get into it.

Hell, maybe I should do it.

Its just like those get rich quick schemes in real estate.

They dont tell you that they get the real money from selling you the books/tapes not from actually using their system.

Damn, I may just have to subscribe to Showtime just to watch this show! Hands-down, one of (if not THE) best shows on TV.

I'm a cheap bastard, I only have Extended Basic cable. No Showtime.

Nearly three years, damn. No old thread is safe from Night of the Living Thread!

Really an outstanding show. I'm glad that there are new ones on the way.
The older ones can be watched over Winamp.

I really like the show, but I find Teller (or is it Penn? the one who talks) to be really grating. I can only take so much ranting and gratuitous f-bombing, even if the gist of what he's saying is interesting and true.

I've always liked Penn Jillette. The fact that he is on a fatwah list for slight-of-hand stage magicians is enough to put him on my party invite list for life. If you've ever seen him do and explain the cup and ball trick with transparent plastic cups, you know what I'm talking about. It's just freaking amazing.

This sounds like an interesting show. I wonder what the content of the 2003 episode on organic food was? Anyone remember that far back?

Agreed. Swearing for the sake or swearing or to put on some false "edgy" vibe gets on my nerves.

Bullsh*t! is f*cking awesome!

From Season One, Episode One:

You'll notice more obscenity than we usually use. That's not just because it's on Showtime and we wanna get some attention. It's also a legal matter. If one calls people 'Liars' and 'Quacks' one can be sued and lose a lot of ones money. But 'motherf***ers' and 'assholes' is pretty safe. If we said it was all Scams we could also be in trouble, but 'Bullsh*t,' oddly, is safe. So forgive all the bullsh*t language, we're trying to talk about the truth without spending the rest of our lives in court because of litigious motherf***ers.

I like what I've seen so far!
