Many people would be offended by the irreverence Penn & Teller Bullshit! exhibits; to them I say, “Oh, well…” (or maybe “Lost your remote? The TV has a manual switch, y’know.”). First impression might be that Penn and Teller respect nothing, but I’d argue that they do respect their audience. I have a feeling, though, that they are preaching to the choir. I imagine that most of their fans already agree that popular culture phenomena are fertilizer, jammed down our throats by those who have something to gain from them. We watch, dumbfounded, as one sucker after another pledges allegiance to something we know is just a crock, or pursues a goal that is basically a waste of time. I suspect that a large segment of Penn & Teller Bullshit!’s audience realizes that Penn and Teller are also heavily seasoning their program with their own brand of bullsh*t. Discriminating viewers undoubtedly prefer the Penn and Teller brand.
Extra features: Episodes one and two from the third season of Californication. Missing feature: Penn and Teller’s “Vatican” episode from season seven. Penn & Teller Bullshit! is scheduled for a May 4 release.
Bottom Line: Would I buy/rent Penn & Teller Bullshit!? Yes! Having seen the seventh season, I am ready to go back in time and view earlier seasons.
