Sherry Lee Hunter,
I watched my first Jon Dore episode tonight, it was episode #6, Fit, and it was hilarious. My girlfriend and I were laughing out loud for the majority of the show.
He interviews a variety of different people in his quest to become physically fit and I wasn't sure if the interviews were scripted or not, but either way it was comedic gold.
If the interviews were unscripted Jon Dore is quick witted with perfect delivery. If the interviews were scripted he plays the part flawlessly. There are parts of the show that are definitely scripted, and I found those well written and the acting was good enough to make me laugh.
For a Canadian produced television show it came across quite polished, I will definitely be looking to watch the other episodes.
