Editorial Reviews

The third season of this award-winning series featuring master showmen Penn & Teller, delivers viewers an aggressive, humorous expose of taboo topics, using the duo's trademark humor, knowledge of carnival tricks as well as hidden cameras and blatant confrontation. Winner of the prestigious 2004 and 2005 Writer's Guild Award for Best Comedy/Variety Series and nominated the last three years for the Emmyr for Outstanding Reality Program and Outstanding Writing for Non Fiction Programming, Penn & Teller: Bullshit! Continues its controversial muckraking throughout season three by confronting many of the institutions society holds dear.

I'm going to say this right now and get it out of the way: The third season of Penn and Teller: Bulls***! is definitely the weakest. It seems that they had hit a bit of a dry spell, and some of the topics weren't as interesting as they seemed, while some seemed to be rehashes of earlier episodes (Ghostbusting being the prime example). The good news is that despite the somewhat weaker episodes, the show is still highly entertaining (Penn and Teller are as hilarious as ever), and things pick up again in the fourth season.

For the uninitiated, Bulls***! is a show where Penn Jillette and his partner Teller research concepts, many of which are taken for granted to be true in society, and thorougly discredit and mock them. Using humor, sarcasm, and most of all, well-researched facts, the duo attempts to show people that not everything is as it seems. Some of the better episodes this year (many of which were at the level of quality that has been established in previous seasons) deal with Signs from Heaven, The Best, Hair, Conspiracy Theories. For example, in the episode about Hair, Penn and Teller discuss why having hair shouldn't be as important as Americans make it out to be. Furthermore, they question why haircuts can cost so much when they interview a stylist who is known to cut the hair of celebrities, and charges exorbitant amounts of money for the service. Hair-care products are attacked, and we also are treated to a bit on the comb-over, wherein it is both mocked and praised when a colleague displays his own comb-over, which truly deserves praise as the world's greatest. In the episode called The Best, Penn and Teller talk about why people's pursuit of having "the best" can often lead to bad results, especially an insatiable obsession.

4.0 out of 5 stars These guys are really funny ;-) August 29, 2006
So far, I've really loved Seasons 1-2 and while I enjoyed their 3rd Season, I didn't enjoy this quite as much as the other two. They are still funny, but I just wasn't quite as captivated this season around.

Here is a list of some of the topics they talk about: Circumcision, Conspiracy Theories, Hair, Gun Control, Signs From Heaven and Life Coaching (to name a few). The one thing I really love about them (apart from being funny), is that they are honest and tell it like it is. You can't watch this and disagree much with them because they more than not, make total sense. I like the fact that they are blunt and yet they don't shove it down your throat; they just say what they've got to say and hope you'll think about it.

Give this a go. I think you'll find it as entertaining as I did because you know they are right. I highly recommend this DVD. It's classic.

5.0 out of 5 stars A little "out there" what were you watching? October 6, 2006
This season is right up there with the other two. The episode on circumcision was one of the most uncomfortable things I have ever watched on TV. It was uncomfortable because they were RIGHT!!! Any circumcised man who sees this will want to go and punch his parents right in the face. It is a story that had to be told and should be shown to all parents contemplating circumcision. As for the other episodes, like the Boy Scouts...BRAVO...Its about time someone stood up to them. I am going to guess that the others didn't mention this episode because they are still working on their merit badges. Anyway, it continues to get better and I can't wait for future episodes.

3.0 out of 5 stars Topics getting stale January 7, 2007
I'm a huge P&T fan, but unfortunately this endeavour is getting stale. Most of the topics didn't interest me (although I'm sure that's not the case for everyone). More on bogus medical treatments and fraudulent claims (such as the Q Ray bracelet... dodgy advertising such as for "Head On", which avoids fraud by not making any claims) would be better. "The Best" and "Family Values" didn't really provide any "content". I'd like to see less ad hominem attacks on the participants (even if they do sometimes seem to deserve it) and more emphasis on thinking lapses, lack of ethics, and superstition. If there's another season, I hope they step back and try to hit their earlier stride. I saw there's another professor who uses this to teach critical thinking (the profanity makes me reluctant to bring it into the class, but I admit passing along their arguments and a recommendation to view these to my own students!). If you're a fan already, you might like it. I wouldn't suggest this title to anyone not already interested in their work.

5.0 out of 5 stars BullSht! is good for you January 4, 2007
Verified Purchase
in a day and age when reality tv numbs the mind and religion infects the soul. Bullsht! is one of the few shows i would say is not only good to watch, but good for you as well. if you agree or disagree with what penn and teller think you'll laugh and learn and at times get outraged. the pure Bullsht they uncover and then burry with facts is laughable in itself when brought to light, but when you combine that with the funny way penn and teller deal with it it becomes a side splitting rip roaring good time. recomended to everyone

3.0 out of 5 stars Compression Depression February 19, 2007
While not as spectacular overall as the first two seasons, this is still a lot of fun. My lament is that the discs are all single-layer, thus the shows are squeezed down to half the size they should be. Not grotesque, but if you have a large TV you will notice compression artifacts.
