| Witty and subversive fun
Extremely funny, witty and clever performance by Penn and Teller. The writing is as sharp as the dangerous-looking knives and implements that are their trademark. One of the funniest pieces in the program is when Penn and Teller run amok in a grocery store in order to swipe enough food to feed their camera crew. Penn's heartfelt justification for this outrage is that viewers who support PBS don't want their money going to buy lunch for employees instead of "Masterpiece Theatre". There is a constant subversive mocking of PBS throughout the program which is hilarious and refreshing.
