Storyline

In this cable show, muckraking director Michael Moore continues his war against all the wrongs committed by greedy businesses, the callous wealthy and opportunistic politicians that exploit the little person in society. To that end, we have his standard protest pranks, investigative reports and satiric games with the audience. Written by Kenneth Chisholm <kchishol@execulink.com>

Republican WASP wants more Moore
13 July 2005 | by Dire_StraitsSee all my reviews

Big-time Republican here. My friends all hate Moore. I like him.

THE AWFUL TRUTH, while not a consistently funny show, does have lots of laughs. I admire Moore for his ballsy approach to people. You see plenty of it in this series.

He makes his points (usually) and even though I don't agree with 90% of his tripe, I like the show.

My favorite show was when he put a Fica plant in an election. That's typical of something Moore would do; his sarcasm is over-the-top and it usually works well. Sometimes, there is way too much of it - but I'll take the bad with the good.

I'd like to watch another series like this by Moore. I hope he does another one day.
