VERY entertaining and informative
24 May 2016 | by DarkdemonqueenSee all my reviews

I love this show not only because its entertaining but because it does what I think a lot of people and shows are afraid to do: debunk social norms and show the insanity to where a lot of our American customs originated. If you see anything negative about this show its because someone was offended by something they discussed on the show and explained how silly the practice of that particular belief was/is. For example: The show explains how we've been brainwashed as a society/culture to believe diamonds are the greatest way to show a woman you love but in fact they are "intrinsically worthless".

This show teaches people to ask themselves: "why do we do this? who started this custom and why is it social norm now?" Its truly fascinating. Its well worth the watch. The host/show backs up all his facts by displaying source on the screen so that you may look into it yourself.

The host comes off a little condescending at first but if you think about it its almost impossible to explain something to someone when they thought they knew "how" "why" & "where/when" in the first place. I am more than happy to admit that I did NOT know most of the things they teach on the show! That is why I love watching though....I just keep learning so much and you will too!!!
