Nominated for the Emmy in Outstanding Reality Program, PENN & TELLER: B*! features the comedic duo investigating a number of modern beliefs and institutions. In each episode, a topic is chosen that Penn and Teller proceed to investigate to reveal it for what it really is-a load of nonsense. They combine standard procedures of television journalism, such as interviews and undercover work, with Penn's angry tirades and Teller's mute displays of comic magic. In the second season of the program, collected here in it's entirety, the subjects examined are as diverse as the effectiveness of the war on drugs; the value of recycling; and the truth behind New Age therapies. PENN & TELLER: B*! presents the philosophy of skepticism by showing it's applicability to our everyday lives, and refreshingly without regard to either side of the political spectrum.
