This show is fake
7 December 2003 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

They keep using the same actors over and over, yet they keep finding marks who have never heard of the show.

Evidence:

* None of the people on this show appear to have heard of the show, even though they're the prime demographic.

* They keep using the same actors and nobody recognizes them.

* A show in March 2004 featured a purported "mob hit" where one of the mobsters was obviously Vincent "Big Pussy" Pastore from The Sopranos. However, this so-called victim seemed to have no idea who this person was.

* The three-camera setups and establishing shots.

* The sets that are obviously just that.

* March 2004 episode - Elk, MI and Chenault, OK do not exist.

In fact, I bet the so-called lawsuit filed by the girl who claimed to be injured in the alien abduction stunt was a fake too, filed as a publicity stunt to get attention for the show.

That being said, my favorite bit was the girl who got a job as a receptionist in a "clinic" that was really an S&M shop and when she got lured into the back and asked to help "treat" a customer, she picked up the whip with a positively disturbing degree of enthusiasm. Another Berkeley Experiment, I guess.
