Overview

Prepare to laugh through the bitter truth about everything from alternative medicine to the end of the world with the DVD release of Penn & Teller: Bullshit. Presented in 1.33:1 full-frame, the image sports well-balanced colors and even skin tones. Audio is presented in English Dolby Digital 5.1, English Dolby Digital Stereo, and Spanish Mono with optional English subtitles. In addition to including every episode from the first season of the myth-debunking Showtime series, Showtime Entertainment has also included some fun extras. While a bonus episode entitled "The Ghost Segment" is an entertaining exposé of supernatural scams, its tone doesn't match that of most episodes and it's fairly easy to see why it was left on the cutting-room floor. An interview with frequent Penn and Teller collaborator and vocal skeptic James Randi exposes the more damaging effects of so-called psychics and spiritual mediums, with deleted scenes and outtakes giving the viewer a real sense of how fun it must be to be involved in the production of the show. A brief behind-the-scenes segment provides alternate, shot-on-camcorder takes of Penn and Teller in action on the set, and the "wraparounds," while fairly useless, give a quick look at how the segments are connected before the show hits the air. For the uninitiated, there are also biographies for both Penn and Teller, but then again, if you've already shelled out the hard-earned cash to pick up this entertaining release, you're probably well-aware of what you're getting yourself into.
