I disagree with the prior review about Cam ruining the show and being an idiot. True, he does say idiotic things which are not doubt planned to go along with idiotic events that people get filmed doing, and his commentary makes Max X one of the funniest shows around. While it may seem cruel for the announcer to poke fun at some of the mishaps suffered by the subjects of the films, most of the footage is of people doing things that is bound to get them into some difficult, if not harmful situations. Examples- the skateboarders who leap with their boards onto stairway railings and then crash and burn, the guy who leaped from a tree while tied to a rope (bungee jumping?), the guy who tried to jump an apartment building on his bicycle ala Evel Knievel. There are hundreds more images, but almost all of them are of people doing something foolish, and you quickly lose empathy for the subjects. Also, Cam does take a serious tone when dictated, for example, a South American hostage situation, and he does not disrespect true victims.
