Weird Weekends

Today I discovered the wonder of British journalist Louis Theroux. He had a show called Weird Weekends on BBC2 that ran from 1998-2000. In his show he would embed himself in a whole spectrum of subcultures. He had shows about televangelists, Black Supremacists, White Supremacists, Female Body builders, Male Porn stars and a much more. Louis is a fearless interviewer that asks candid questions that leads to an unlimited supply of awkward situations. He has away of making fun of a situation while at the same time brining up serious issues. Here are four of the shows that I found on the web:

Law and Disorder in Philadelphia

Louis and the Nazi

Black Nationalism

On Fundamentalist Christianity
