Alright if you can handle the biased nature.
9 October 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is just another show that looks to shock you rather then properly inform you. The biased nature of the coverage is slanted in the direction of trying to provide "Fear Factor" style entertainment rather then actual anthropological observations.

At times it seems like the people involved in the show purposely sought out the people who fit the general stereotype of the perceived topic. This only leads the viewers to believe the worse and misinforms them on the topics.

The only taboo here is the truth they are afraid to expose you to.

Watch this if you know better then to believe what you see on TV. Don't watch this if you don't.
