Editorial Reviews

Penn & Teller: Bullshit! The Complete Season 2 Box Set marks the return of the self-proclaimed pit-bulls for the truth, set out to prove that many of the institutions society holds dear are bogus and designed to profit from the desperate and trusting public. Each of the 13 episodes includes interviews and undercover segments intertwined with Penn & Teller’s comedy. With zeal, passion and conviction the duo examines taboo topics and organi-zations such as PETA, safety hysteria, the business of love, 12 step programs and the fountain of youth. Penn & Teller won two Emmys® for their 1985 PBS special "Penn & Teller Go Public" and the prestigious 2004 Writers Guild Award for Best Comedy/Variety Series. They have also authored two best selling books.

5.0 out of 5 stars Back in Top Form June 4, 2005
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Penn and Teller can be abrasive and obnoxious but they are also quite rational and extremely funny. The BS series looks at a wide range of pop culture phenomena and debunks them from a rational point of view. They do so with humor and an intense, biting sarcasm directed at those who would harm others. To those who are merely acting foolishly or exhibiting bad judgment, they are slightly kinder.

Some think that the second season is not as good as the first but I disagree. I think it is just as good and I look forward to more episodes next season. Those for this one include the following:

PETA- exposing the animal rights organization that would rather have people die than animals; who support arson to free animals; who euthanize 2/3 of the animals they save; who object to medical research and drugs derived from animals except for their high executives.

Safety Hysteria- anti terrorist mail order goods, fear of magnetic fields, fear of cell phones, fear of toilets, school violence and some gratuitous nudity from a model are some of the features of this episode. Basically, lots of people make lots of money preying on lots of fears from lots of fools.

Business of Love - consider the proposition that monogamy is unnatural; look at schemes to meet the perfect mate; learn how to hoodwink members of the opposite sex into thinking you a better than you are; learn some of the methods of relationship books and magazines. The bottom line is that some people are looking for love and are miserable and most of the rest are in relationships and...miserable.

War on Drugs - This one does not glorify drugs and even makes the point that drugs screw up people's lives.

3.0 out of 5 stars A Good and Needful Effort (with Some Reservations) October 24, 2005
Format:DVD
I consider myself to be a science-minded, libertarian-sympathetic skeptic. Carl Sagan's The Demon-Haunted World is one of my favorite books, of all time. In short, I am in the choir that surrounds Penn & Teller's pulpit. I love this kind of thing--debunking popular claims with a healthy dose of clear thinking, evidence and reason. I only wish, having watched this season on disc, that Penn & Teller had done a better job of it.

It's likely not their fault, but it remains thus: that the series presents topics, such as the existence of fact in the Bible, profanity, New Age mysticism, recycling and P.E.T.A., which are then dealt with (pronounced "B.S.") in a slickly produced 24-25 minutes (minus the title sequence). The problem is that many of these topics, no matter how much I agree with P&T on their judgment, are too weighty and subtle to be dealt with effectively in that kind of time frame, and in the manner of the show. There's no way that they can cover it all, and so I'm forced to conclude that, given the time they take and detail they go into, they can only really convince people who were *already convinced*.

Also, the slick editing always makes the viewer wonder--are they pulling things out of context? Are they giving the other side "a fair hearing"? For instance, I whole-heartedly agree that New Age mysticism is tripe, but I cringed to see the folks that P&T dredged up to defend those beliefs. To really prove the point, in my opinion, you have to be able to debunk/impeach the best-spoken advocates of New Age, not the drugged-out psychos.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fabulous! February 1, 2005
Format:DVD
This series is one of the finest on TV! Penn and Teller have always specialized in exposing the tricks, obfuscations and downright lies people try to perpetuate on one another. This show is definitely for thinking people who are not easily suckered. Oh, and an active, functional funnybone helps!

5.0 out of 5 stars PETA and a whole bunch more February 2, 2005
Format:DVD
You know some people will say that these episodes are "slanted and biased". Anyone who ever comments on any subject approaches the subject with their own perspective. Penn and Teller do a great job of giving opposing sides the opportunity to have their say on camera. The opposing side does a great job of making themselves look bad. They don't need any help from P&T. Watch how the PETA representative squarms when confronted with the fact that PETA themselves support KILL shelters. This is another great box set from two great guys.

5.0 out of 5 stars Always question February 11, 2005
Format:DVD
The most important thing you can do after you watch this television show is take all of the things you disagree with, all of the things you do agree with, write them down and actually look them up. You will be surprised to see that most of the things they tell you are correct. The reason why many people avoid this show is that people are frightened of truth because with truth brings responsibility and we'd rather be told that everything is one way then look it up for ourselves. That's why I admire these fellows so much.

5.0 out of 5 stars The world needed a show like this February 8, 2006
Format:DVD
Comedic magicians Penn & Teller put their own spin on consumer advocacy and myth debunking with Penn & Teller: Bullsh*t! I don't watch too many TV shows, but this is one that caught my attention from the first season, and continues to be a favorite of mine.

What makes this show great is that there's nothing quite like it on the air. Who better to show the dark underbelly lying behind the lily-white facade of many of the bogus industries out there than the outspoken Penn Jillette and silent but impactful Teller (both of whom also write for the show)?

Whether the topic is religion, personal trainers, the funeral industry, free speech, gun control, life coaches or hair management, nothing is safe from setting off Penn & Teller's BS detectors. And while there are times where some statements may prove to be either incorrect or opinion-based, every episode is both hilarious and educational to some degree (how's that for a combination?). In addition, while many of the topics would hint at some sort of political agenda, you may find Penn & Teller's stance on another subject to be contradictory to the leanings suggested on another subject - for instance, they are opposed to organized religion, favor the right to bear arms, and are big time free speech advocates (as the show's title perfectly attests to).

In summary: Penn & Teller: Bullsh*t! (The Complete Second Season) is a must-buy for anyone who seeks enlightenment and humor in the same place. While my stance on certain subjects may not change, they have certainly changed my perspective on a plethora of topics. This show will probably make more enemies than friends for Penn & Teller, but I think they wouldn't have it any other way. Which explains why they're still at it after 20 + years: they're true originals, and as far as Bullsh*t is concerned - you're not going to find this style of bold, fearless broadcasting anywhere else.
