Sacha Baron Cohen,
Assume the position that pop culture is history. A hundred years from now when the Longfellow or the Irving of 2105 decides he wants to tell history his way, history may very well show that Al Gore *did* invent the internet, that George W. Bush was the most articulate statesman the world has ever known and that Michael Jackson was really the only normal one among us all.

I recently watched this, but when it started I had no idea what the concept was about, what the topic was.....in short - I had no idea what it was. Was it a documentary, was it a comedy routine.....Well, it was BOTH.
It started a little slow, but I think that's because I had absolutely no idea what type of program I was viewing. But it quickly sucked me in. The episode I watched had Robert Wuhl discussing fact and fiction in history. Mainly how we (american's) learn history that isn't really true - and how we got to learn what we did. He did this in such a way as to keep the viewer completely entertained, and interested. I actually learned a few things and that is a true indicator of how effective this type of program can be.
I would love to see this picked up as a series for HBO. I believe it can be just as fun and effective with a variety of topics - especially if they are "taught" in the same type of manner as this episode.
