While I generally agree with the positions being presented, the show seems to find the "worst" representatives of whatever they are attacking. While there is no obligation of the show to try to carefully examine a subject, those of us who like to hear both sides are denied that opportunity. I will continue to watch other seasons, but this is an ongoing feature of the show which I find I must work to get past.

Wow, I had no idea that Mount Rushmoore had all that history. I am exceptionally ashamed of it now.

Briefly; my ancestors came over to help establish this nation before the breakaway from England, and served under the direct command of commander in chief, General George Washington during the revolution.

Knowing the mindset of the prejudiced mind who, on top of having a disposition to prejudgment, has a concept and vision of how things are supposed to be ordered, I am not surprised, though highly disappointed, that the Mount Rushmore monument has the history that it does. Yet it seems to be a selling point for what I would characterize as well meaning and good hearted, though plainly ignorant, Americans of what Rushmoore was supposed to symbolize.

At the same time, I do kind of shrug at it. If this is still a locus of sacred Earth for the Native American people of the North American continent, then I think it may be high time to bring a referrendum to the American people to decide the fate of this sculpture.

I will say this; that the Founding Fathers were men. They were no gods nor even demi-gods. They did not all get along with one another. They argued and fought over deep, profound and superficial differences in thoughts and in convictions that they were right. One of the things they all agreed on, however, was to dispose of any facsimile with Great Britain. This included barring the naming of ships, places and other things after people to as ensure that the deification of their personalities, or anyone to come in the future, would not take hold in this country.

How disappointing that we have aircraft carriers named after presidents, and one founding member of congress, Doctor Benjamin Franklin.

After a slight dip in quality in Season 4 due to topics no one really cared about, season 5 comes back with a vengeance and brings the series back to it's glory.

The Immigration episode in particular takes an interesting look at one of the biggest issues in politics today, nearly a decade later. They show how building a wall on the Mexican border sounds like an effective idea, but in practice it's really not a solution to anything because a wall would just slow people down a little bit. Penn & Teller literally hire 3 teams of Mexicans to build 3 separate boarder fences. Then they race to see who can get past the fences fastest. One team has to go over the fence, one under the fence, and one through the fence. All 3 teams negotiate the fence obstacle quickly and without much resistance. So even if you're totally in favor of immigration reform in any way, this episode shows why a wall probably isn't the way to go about it.

The Hybrid episode is another that's just fantastic television and should be watched by all.

I have always loved Penn & Teller for their frank and honest assessment of social issues. Like Penn, I'm an atheist and I refuse to wear rose-colored glasses. His humor and Teller's priceless expressions and acting make for a delightful and thought-provoking experience. You may not agree with their views -- sometimes I don't -- but I can appreciate the thought processes that go into forming them. If you're a prude about swearing and the notorious "f" word - don't watch. This is liberally sprinkled with politically incorrect expressions. To me - that makes it worth watching!

While some of the information presented in these shows is a bit dates (climate change), it has good information presented in the usual Penn & Teller style. There's plenty of magic, comedy and more than enough nudity, both male and female. It's both funny and thought provoking.

Penn and Teller are good at whatever they do. These programs are all made interesting by the way they are put together and presented.
Whether you agree with the fact that their subject is or isnt "Bulls***", Penn's presentation and reasoning are worth considering.

Neither the subject matter nor the presentation will be to everyone's taste. In fact, some will move to another selection within minutes. But for those who can tolerate this series, they will be rewarded with some downright clever humor, some in-depth and well researched content, and the satisfaction of learning some things you thought you knew, but have now discovered look entirely different when viewed from the Penn & Teller perspective. Try it. You may like it. Really, you might.

Great show but I don't love all the cursing. To be fair, it's sort of the premise of the show so if you watch it you know what you are getting. Still for me I"d rather see this exact show without all the profanity.
