Did anyone see the 'Place for Paedophiles' episode? The whole hospital just give me the creeps, it reminded me of the underwater city in the game Bioshock.
Yea i posted about that one a few posts back.. It was creepy as hell, but was really interesting. I didn't know a place like that existed.. you finish your time in prison, but yet your forced into another prison without any say whatsoever...

lol, the "I am not a quitter" line was amazing. That guy looked like he was in self-destruct mode, wouldn't surprise me if he lost some if not all of the house. I'm guessing Allan was kidding about tax? Or did he mean he'd put in $1500 in order to win the $5000 (though he must have put a lot more in the way he was feeding the machines)

Other Louis episodes to see is the women body builders, cosmetic surgery (If I recall, he actually got some for the programme) and he also did the "wild weekends" shows which were good.

Yes. That episode was so messed up also the porn one where this straight guy does gay porn for pay.. Possibly the best/most depressing episode of them all. Louis definately sets up his questioning to get the best responses and it seems at times he lures the interviewee into a false sense of security and they really open up to him.

That guy Ashley Haimes from Bravo did an awesome swingers TV show.

Not sure what happened to him, he was quite good.

I've seen the Philadelphia and Nazi documentaries...nothing groundbreaking journalism wise imo but entertaining nonetheless. His nonchalant approach to the most serious questions is subliminally hysterical.

yeah, the female bodybuilders were pretty big. Can't say I would not hit some of them . The one lady who was married to the guy kind of scared me though.

I watched the vegas, body building and san quentin shows today.

I just say the preview of the "worlds most hated family" shows. those wackos look hilarious. I will be watching that one tomorrow.

The blackjack player who lost all his money scared me. He looked like he was high on crack. So much for his 'system'

Haha, Louis is great!

I think I downloaded every docu of him and watched it in a span of 3 days in the previous summer.

Weird nobody mentioned the episode with the UFO/Alien-hunters... Weiiiiiiiiiiiiiird sh*t man! Those people are crazy. The guy seriously thought he could contact some alienguide and talked 'in his name' with a ****ed up voice, hahahaha! Def. check out!

Thought he could have approached gramps a little better.
He really pissed him off and we didn't get any insight.

That was very concerning. Slots are a major killer. I'm happy to say I've never put a single penny of my own money in a slot machine.
