Okay, so this is one of those guilty-pleasure types of shows. I found it, like most people, I would assume, while channel surfing. Maestros of magic Penn Jillette and ever-silent Teller are out to inform and debunk, all while entertaining with their brand of sarcastic wit. This second season of Bullsh*t! is just as outrageously funny and salacious as every other season. The show topics include a wide range of cultural (popular and otherwise) subjects that include PETA, Safety Hysteria, Business Of Love, War On Drugs, Recycling, Profanity, Yoga/Tantric sex, Fountain Of Youth, Death, Inc., 12-Step Programs, The Bible, Exercise vs Genetics, and last but not least, Hypnosis.

As usual, some shows in this 12-episode season are better than others - either funnier, more salacious, more informative, or more full of Penn just being downright angry, obnoxious, abrasive, and sarcastic. This isn't Dateline or 60 Minutes, so you expect more schtick than hard journalism, but through the duo's creativity, more of the information is absorbed, discussed, and possibly debated. Which is all good for a show with the title of Bullsh*t! If they get you to think a little bit more on any of these topics of this season or any other season, they have done their job.

Season Two is every bit as good as Season One, so if you're a fan of Penn & Teller, check out their show and decide what is and isn't bullsh*t.
