  • Penn and Teller take on even more bulls@*! forms of alternative medicine, this time, focusing on the New Age.

    It's P&T:BS, so it's going to be entertaining, and this episode was. The New Age procedures, executed by our favourite fake doctor, were so absurd and it was pretty hilarious to see people respond positively to the good old placebo effect. They did a remarkable job of finding alternative medicine even more ridiculous than those that they covered in Season 1.

    Some of the ground covered felt a little bit too close to the procedures they debunked in Season 1, and the episode format was quite close to the Alternative Medicine episode from that same season, which is why I don't give this episode a full 9. Still, the laughs are here, and what more can I ask for?
