Wow - this show is hilarious and educational - WATCH IT
One of the most entertaining shows I have watched in a long time. One part comedy, one part education and one part awesome (ok two parts awesome). If you are a true believer you will of course dump on his treatment of psychics, ghost hunters, etc. but the fact remains that he artfully and humorously explains and illustrates the social and psychological explanations behind the prevalence of the belief in the paranormal and otherworldly phenomena.
Are all of his "experiments" scientific? Not at all. Does it matter? Not at all. Does it illustrate the case that if you want to believe you will find a reason to believe, regardless of the facts? Absolutely!
This show is a must see. I hope Lawrence brings us more of his comedy and intellect. I had never heard of Lawrence before this show. I am now a huge fan and can't wait to see what comes next!
