The bad boys of magic are back with another season of Penn & Teller - Bullsh*t! wherein they use their sleight of hand skills to turn the tables on such subjects as Abstinence Education, Cryptozoology (the "study" of bullsh*t creatures like Bigfoot and the Loch Ness Monster), and The Boy Scouts. Yes, The Boy Scouts: seems they have some policies on whom they allow in that are questionable in light of how much government money they get.

As in previous seasons, there are strong episodes and weak ones. The strong ones provoke thought and discussion, perhaps even heated debate depending on your company. The weak ones are still entertaining, but they're fluff. Not a lot to raise the cockles in such episodes as Pet Love and Manners, although the manners episode has the rudest manners expert you've ever seen. They'll be bringing him back for the irony episode, no doubt.

There are ten episodes here and they're chock full of magic, profanity, nudity and truth. If you enjoy Penn & Teller, you'll dig Bullsh*t! Season 4. Episodes include:
  • The Boy Scouts
  • Prostitution
  • Capital Punishment
  • Cryptozoology
  • Ground Zero
  • Pet Love
  • Reparations
  • Manners
  • Numbers/Polls
  • Abstinence

Extra features are pretty sparse; there are some promotional pictures taken of the guys and some commercials for other Showtime programs.
