I saw previews of it and had low hopes. There were nothing else on TV so I decided to watch it. I was pleasantly surprised. Now if you started watching this show thinking that it was going to be like Bulls**t, you are going to be a little disappointed. This show is made for families so most of the cussing has been cut out. However their humor is still there, just toned down. Penn does his unique narration over each of the seven stories like he would on Showtime. So if you like Penn and Teller's antics you would like this show. At the same time this show reminded me so much of Beyond Belief: Fact or Fiction. The concept of the show is almost parallel. What's even better is the show will even drop hints of which of the stories are fiction.
I really enjoyed the show, I believe you should give it a watch. I'm sure if you are a fan of Penn and Teller, you will like it. I'm sure if you were a fan of Beyond Belief, you will like it.
