John Safran maintains he has little to no recollection of the exorcism that was performed on him for the final episode of the series, and that his reactions during the ceremony were completely involuntary. See more »
Now, you've probably noticed that I spend a fair bit of time in America filming the show. And while I like Americans, every Australian I know ridicules them. Apparently Americans are really stupid, culturally insular, and have no concept of the world outside their own borders. Unlike... you. Point to Zaire on this map. Go on, you smug fuck, show me where it is. I'll give you 10 seconds. Come, on, you're not a dumb American, come on! If you couldn't point to Zaire, you're an idiot. If you *could...

Excellent series - funny, informative and thought provoking
Having seen all of the episodes on TV I can say that they have been very interesting to watch. Some episodes in the middle sort of fall over themselves as he tries to stretch out weak jokes. But the vast majority had me in stitches. The Scientology bit, his rants and the countless jokes about Mormonism and many more are truly hilarious and often makes poignant criticisms of the various religions. Needless to say, the final exorcism episode is an exhilarating fly on the wall documentary, although it was obviously heavily edited considering the process went over 4 days. Form your own opinion about it, but remember that all is not as it seems and a lot was cut out. John doesn't seem to have converted! The DVD will contain the outtakes from this episode so it will be interesting to see what they reveal. Overall a highly entertaining Australian series which goes where few other shows have and has some truly revealing pieces (the voodoo one in particular!).
