One of the best shows on T.V.
24 April 2000 | by Ducktape-2See all my reviews

I'm really surprised that nobody has left any comments on here yet. Really, this show is one of the best ones on T.V. right now. He gets involved with the most outrageous American situations and exposes their stupidity. I know, nothing new, right? But the way he does it is amazing! Unlike Tom Green or any other comedian going out for laughs, he doesn't make himself look stupid. He adapts to his environment and makes the people in it look idiotic without letting them know that they're being portrayed in a bad light. He can do one episode on a White Supremacy camp one day and another about a Black Power group in New York City the next. He really must be one of the best and most interesting reporters in world today.
