Woot!
28 May 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I'm only giving this show a 2 because the urban legend stories are sometimes interesting. Here's the problem: the "false" stories are TOO easy to identify because the "actors" in the story have major Canadian accents. Take some dude from Baltimore who, while out jogging, beats the crap out of another jogger who accidentally bumps into him. He thought dude stole his wallet, so he reclaimed it - only to get arrested because in fact, it was not his wallet, but the wallet of the guy who bumped into him and who he beat the crap out of. First, no young, good looking men in Baltimore would wear a bad wig (LOVE how at the end the actor's like "This isn't even my real hair what's that all aboot?!" SECOND, this guy and every 'actor' in the 'false' stories on the show have a thick Canadian accent!! IT IS SO OBVIOUS. I am from Philadelphia and I can tell! If you want to guess correctly which stories on this show are 'true' just pick the ones where A) The story derives from Canada (thus, Canadian accents) or B) the stories that derive from the United States have actual people in them (not actors) that do not have thick Canadian accents. Even the host has one - faint, but it's there. Accent aside, the actors are realllllly bad actors. I am sure, even with a limited budget, the show can at least do a little better than the worst. Where do you find these people?! Wait for it... while you're just 'out and aboot'?
