Re: I didn't mind Adam Ruins Everything
Oh, man. I can't stand Adam's voice or look (rule #345 in the Ironclad Law of Douchebaggery is that if you look like Adam Conover, you're a douchebag) but worst of all are the pedantic actors (rather, actors reading a pedantic script). I've never seen Penn & Teller anything besides a series of commercials some years ago and the AVGN "Desert Bus" episode, but I've generally read that if nothing else, Teller is a hoot. But Penn's is a very powerful presence, and libertarians can be self-sure and loud-mouthed.
I think it's generally agreed that the best of that style of show was Mythbusters, right? With the semi-hot chick, the guy with the beret, the excitable redhead guy, the Asian guy I think is dead now -- they were all likeable, the show went off very well, it was all good-natured.
