This has been talked to death, but the first episode, about the mediums, was brilliant.  Loving the whole show.  And as someone who spent 13 years in private Catholic education, I'm pretty excited for the Bible episode.   Unrelated, but similar, did anyone else see the documentary "For The Bible Tells Me So"?  It's absolutely amazing.  See it.

Which bible show? They've done 2 so far, both of them very good. One was centered more on creationism, and the other was just about the bible itself. Both were very good. And they interview one of my main men, Michael Shermer. I'd love to see them do more bible episodes. I grew up southern Baptist, so I just eat that stuff up.

And I can't wait to see the War on Porn episode. That ought to be funny. And by funny, I mean "filled with boobs (double entendre intended)."

Well, I got the 1st disc of Season 5 today, and should get disc 2 tomorrow, but there's only 2 discs instead of 3 for Season 5 ???
Is this because of the writer's strike??

Nah. Starting with Season 4, they only do ten episodes a season.


..And are they doing a 6th season for sure??

They're in the writing stages right now (that WAS because of the writers' strike).

I'm really starting to like this show. I'll have to get it on DVD some time. I loved the show about Manners, The Bible and the 9-11 Conspiracy theories. (Oh, and apologies for reviving this thread, i only just noticed the last post was 2 mo. ago)

The show has been on fire this season.

Argh! I only got to see the first couple of episodes because I had to move to Seattle for a couple of months and the hotels they've put me in haven't had Showtime. At least I'll hopefully be back in time to catch it on On Demand.

I really liked the episode about Nuclear power... very interesting how it's actually been so inaccurately judged. It was also so funny I nearly burst a major artery.

What was the upshot of it? Because really NP has a terrible reputation that really it doesn't deserve at all (I'd imagine that that was the upshot really).

It's actually a lot safer than rumors and innuendo would have it. Remember 3 mile island? Nobody was injured! And at the time tens of thousands of people lived in close proximity to the plant! Whenever there's been a nuclear accident, the material was contained because the containers are designed to withstand that sort of stress. Nuclear Plants may be vulnerable to nuclear attack but hell, as Penn pointed out so are electrical plants, airports, soccer fields, movie theatres? Why not tear them all down because they sure as hell are all vulnerable to terrorist attack as well. (Sorry for the late reply btw).

It really seems a bit silly to whinge on and on about how coal-powered electricity plants are destroying the environment and then not accept any alternatives, especially when those alternatives are better than anything else we currently have. I blame Jane Fonda.
