Canada Night
AIRED:
This Episode's Segments:
Canada Night: TV Nation's special salute to our neighbors to the north. Throughout the night we smuggle illegal Canadians across the border, try to give free guns to Canadians, and attempt to find out how much Americans know about Canada. As a highlight, host Michael Moore sings the Canadian National Anthem at a Toronto Blue Jays/Detroit Tigers game.
DC Perks: The Contract with America states that Congress must abide by all the laws that the citizens of the United States do. As it turns out, Congress still plays and lives by a different set of rules. TV Nation travels to Washington, D.C. to enforce the Contract With America by showing up and asking for the same treatment members of Congress receive. We attempt to park our car in the free "Members Only" spaces at National Airport, get free medical care at Bethesda Naval Hospital, and get a relaxing facial from a congressional cosmetologist.
Nugent: TV Nation visits the newest board member of the National Rifle Association, rock and roll legend Ted Nugent. Ted gives us a tour of his Michigan farm and expounds on various issues from assault weapons to Janet Reno and confirms his newfound status as the "Rock and Roll Rush Limbaugh."
Crackers Tour -- St. Louis: Crackers the Corporate Crime-Fighting Chicken Tour continues as seven-foot Crackers visits Chicago, Milwaukee, Indianapolis and other cities in the Midwest. In St. Louis Crackers visits the largest battery lead producer in the United States, Doe Run, Inc. Citizens in the neighborhoods surrounding Doe Run believe that their children have been poisoned by the lead emitted from the factory. Crackers conducts a number of lead level tests and takes his results to the state environmental office.
Falklands: It's been 12 years since Argentina failed in its attempt to win back the Falkland Islands from the British by force. Recently the British government has declared that they will leave the Falklands if that is the wish of the islanders. Seizing this golden opportunity to reclaim their land, the Argentinian government has promised to give each and every citizen of the Falklands $1,000,000 if they will vote to become part of Argentina and give up their British citizenship. When TV Nation pays a visit to the Falklands we don't find many takers. So we travel to Great Britain to see if there is a town there willing to accept the Argentinian offer. We find that in economically ravaged Wales, the offer does not look so bad.moreless
