Genius!!!, 16 June 2004
Author: Ashby McDonald from Dallas, Texas

I caught this show on late-night PBS one time and I have made a point to watch several episodes since then. John Morton is a comedic genius! The comedy sort of reminds me of "Spinal Tap" with maybe a hint of "Curb Your Enthusiasm" - sort of subtle, and the more you watch it the funnier it gets.

Part of what makes it funny is the main character give a clinic on how NOT to make a documentary: he narrates at inappropriate times, gets too involved in the lives of his subjects when he should be just an observer, does a lot of bad editing, etc. Also, his subjects are so pathetic it's almost painful to watch. Beyond that, I can't really describe what's so funny about it - just watch one episode if you get the chance and you'll understand.
