Quotes

John Safran: [on the issue of playing Scrabble with friends] But what really annoys me is, as you can imagine, most of my friends are Left Wing pinkos and on any other issue would be falling over themselves to accommodate the richness of multicultural diversity. Yet put down Qibla and suddenly I'm playing with Pauline Hanson. I tried to explain it's an Arabic word 'but we dont speak Arabic here, we live in Australia, we speak English!'. Listen hippie, when you're breaking through the fence of Woomera ...

Excellent series - funny, informative and thought provoking
22 October 2004 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

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!).
