Penn & Teller: Bullshit!

Penn & Teller: Bullshit! is an American documentary television series that aired from 2003 to 2010 on the premium cable channel Showtime.

Overview
Penn & Teller: Bullshit! was hosted by professional magicians and skeptics Penn & Teller. Its format consisted of debating political topics, usually from a naturalist libertarian capitalist point of view (the political philosophy espoused by both Penn and Teller) or aiming to debunk pseudoscientific ideas, paranormal beliefs, popular fads and misconceptions. The hosts criticize proponents of what they perceive as nonsense and dishonesty, often citing ulterior political or financial motives. In the first episode, Penn said the aim of the show is to "hunt down as many purveyors of bullshit as [they] can." As indicated by the show's title, the program adheres to Penn & Teller's characteristically blunt, aggressive presentation. The show was nominated for eleven Emmy Awards.

I really like the Penn and Teller: Bullshit television series because it provides a lot of information that documentaries may try to address in a funny, sarcastic manner that gets their points across. Many of the times that I have watched their episodes, it left me thinking about the subject and how people are left in the dark about many of the things that are being put in the world whether it be bottled water or how the mortuaries screw you over with their product names and the prices of that, when the person may be better off being buried in a box. One downfall of this show is that it is extremely biased, so when watching, you do have to be wary of that detail. Oh! As well as some nudity, you may need to be wary of that also. But anyways, enjoy! I recommend them all =D
