Warning: This show lies to its viewers!, 19 September 2008
Author: greginess7878 from United States

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

This show presents you with three stories, two of which are urban legends, and one of which is supposedly true. Right before the show ends, the "true" story is revealed to you. Being an avid fan of all things 'urban legend', I decided to give this show a try. The episode I saw presented two urban legends (the kidney thief and the flashing car lights gang initiation) and one supposedly "true" story of a man who got shot in the chest, had the bullet lodged next to his spine, and then miraculously "coughed up" the bullet by way of divine intervention. This supposedly "true" story really piqued my interest, as it would be ostensibly impossible for that to have happened, seeing that the location of the bullet was nowhere near his airway or digestive system. After doing 2 minutes of internet research, I found out that the gentleman in question was actually shot in the mouth. Makes coughing up a bullet seem a little less "miraculous", right? What angers me the most is when writers insult the viewers' intelligence in such a patronizing manner. Don't get me wrong: I love fiction just as much as the next guy... just don't go claiming it to be "true", and then expect people to believe it was a bona-fide miracle. That's what TV evangelists are for!
