What the hell is going on
21 September 2009 | by (Germany) – See all my reviews

That's exactly the question you will ask yourself 5 min into every episode. First, let's clear what it is. This is not comedy, it's not a documentary, it's obviously heavily improvised. It doesn't fit in any category. I would like to call it funny and shocking reality TV.

So what's it about? I would say it's about taboos in relationships and society and especially the breaking of taboos. I don't want to spoil you anything, but you will see Russell do and say things you will never see anybody else do or say, not on TV and probably not in reality.

This series is a voyage through the demented and horrible truths, everybody is trying to avoid thinking about. Questions that arise from our deepest minds, but we would never dare to ask: "Does my father really love me?" "Why do people hate? And are haters really different from us?" "Why do people fail in life and why don't we help them to stand up again?" "Why do we keep old people like they are already dead?" "Aren't we all afraid of waking up in a wheelchair?" and last but not least, the one question Russell answered finally for everybody: "Is there such a thing as sexual identity?" Watch this series, but especially the first and the last episode will leave you breathless or even crying...

What the hell is going on? 10 out of 10 for the most courageous show I've ever seen.
