Years ago, someone introduced me to Penn & Teller: Bullshit! I believe it was the friend that appears in their episode regarding circumcision. However, I watched a few of the other episodes as well. Months ago I watched the entire series. In their show, magicians Penn & Teller show us the bullshit involved in so many things such as circumcision, alternative medicine, and various other topics. While I didn't necessarily agree with them 100%, I found myself agreeing with them almost all of the time.

I highly recommend this show as it contains some eye openers. I think we as a society owe it to ourselves to take a look at all this bullshit that drives us and our motivations. Perhaps if we realize these things, we can change ourselves.

I must warn you though, this show contains "adult content" such as "strong language," and nudity. Penn & Teller are amazing and awesome!

The best thing is that their last episode is the Bullshit of Penn & Teller: Bullshit.

They own up to the fact that they aren't infallible and even that they were straight up wrong on some episodes.

And they spew a bunch of... eh, well... Bullshit... about some Libertarian causes. They're die-hard Libertarians and some things are just Libertarian talking points.

Like one episode in which they argue that second-hand smoke isn't harmful, even though it's basically proven that it is.

BUT don't let that stop you from watching. I loved it. It's a fun show and they make some good points that make you think. Just be sure you think, and don't just believe everything they say.

Huh, apparently that's not the last episode. Maybe it was an extra they did? I'm not sure. At any rate, they definitely call Bullshit on themselves.

So I'm reading about their episodes now, and realizing that I would have more of a problem with the show now than I did 10 years ago. I'm much more educated and I'm just not sure I could watch "the flat tax is the only moral tax," "global warming isn't real," "the Americans with Disabilities Act is shit" and stuff like that anymore.

I watched it via Amazon Prime Instant Video.

Yeah, they called some bullshit on themselves. I think they mentioned being Libertarians, but I also read about that.

Like I said, I didn't agree with them 100% either, but it's still a good show.

We recently signed up for Prime so I just added that to my queue, thanks Greg!

Sweet! I've been a Prime member for quite a while now. I enjoy being able to watch some shows for free. There are some free movies, but I've also paid a few dollars to rent some. I recently added a bunch to my "watch list." But for now, I'm watching the X-Files for the second time in my life. It's a good show and I recently decided to rewatch it. Also, I use the Amazon Instant Video app for the PS3 to watch stuff on my big TV, I love that I can do that.

As for Bullshit, not every episode is free to watch. For the ones asking for payment or subscription to Showtime, I Googled the episodes and watched them online. There are only a few of them, particularly the one where they take on PETA.

Enjoy!

For us, Amazon Prime usually pays for itself in a few months just in shipping alone, then you get special deals, streaming video/music, Kindle specials... it's a no-brainer.

Also, Amazon's customer service is among the very best! :)
