Penn & Teller: Bullshit! Season 2 (Disc 2 of 3) back to product details

First season was better...

I found this show thru greencine (since I don't have Showtime) and eagerly waited renting the first season. It did not disappoint. Taking some popular topics (Feng Shui, speaking with the dead, alternative medicine, "environmental hysteria", etc) BS! dissects the topics. At the very least, they show some major BS in these topics, at best they show them to be complete BS. Ironically, some of the best fodder for their arguments are the proponents themselves. One memorable scene was getting people to sign the anti-DHMO (di-hydro monoxide) campaign at an enviro-rally.

Sure, it's probably biased to make for the best TV, but it still makes a good point that much of this is BS.

Anyway, that's my review of the first season. The second season -- well this DVD at least, doesn't have the same bite as the first. Their arguments seemed weaker, thought still making some valid points. In this DVD, they cover recycling, profanity, yoga/new age, fountain of youth. I thought the yoga/new age episode was the best.

6/10... still some good stuff, but not as good at the first season.
