Great show!
21 March 2001 | by (Los Angeles) – See all my reviews

I have recently discovered this gem and I am very glad that I did. Louis Theroux is brilliant and he never lets that innocent guard of his down. Even when he is interviewing the most ridiculous people. Louis is the best! And to top it all off he is very easy on the eyes! He is the thinking woman's sex symbol.
