Has anyone else caught this series on Showtime? I had never ever heard of it- I just thought I would tune in when I saw "Penn and Teller," expecting to see magic.

I caught the episode where they were ripping into the environmentalist movement. The thing I loved about it was that they were spelling out exactly what I had thought for so long- while they MAY have a good cause, it is clear that most of those people had no clear idea what they were talking about.

One of the best parts for me was when they showed a staffer of their going around, collecting signatures for her petition to ban Di-hydro-oxide (water). To hear some of those people talk about how they have all heard of it, and how evil of a substance it was killed me.

It was a joke. They were showing us just how stupid these people who sign these petitions without knowing what they are signing for.

I had a fried named Don who a few years was heading a committee to stop our county from spraying an insecticide to kill fruit flys. He didn't think the insecticide was harmfull to humans or anything, he just thought it was wrong to kill the fruit flys. He set up a booth down on 7th Avenue in Ybor City here in Tampa. This is where the majority of the nightclubs and bars are here. After 3 weeks, he had over 800,000 signatures. Drunk, stupid people RULE!

It's an amusing show, because they go after annoying people from both sides of the political fence. The episode where they rip a new asshole for the people who want to put Creationism in school systems is priceless. No one is safe when they set their sights on them, so if you watch regularly, at some point they're probably going to go after something you agree with somewhat and you're going to be pissed off, but then they'll attack something you hate and you'll be all "oh yeah, tell em!" :)
