Very Interesting and Informative
31 July 2007 | by prodigy556See all my reviews

Simply put this program is about how certain rituals, food, religion, etc. can be completely normal for one culture, but "taboo" for another.

This program is a very informative watch, and gives insight into other cultural norms from all over the globe. It makes you look at the world in a different way, and ponder how your own culture may seem entirely baffling to someone who lives elsewhere in the world.

This show is not for the squeamish, it does not hold back, and in my opinion shouldn't. It may be disgusting, gory, and odd to some viewers, but it a way of life for a group of people somewhere. These rituals are apart of the culture of the group, tribe, etc, and should remain as close to what occurs as possible.

Perfect program for someone looking to gain insight into the lives of other people, and better understand the world as a whole.
