This premieres after Mythbusters Wednesday. The basic premise is that they will tell 6-7 "unbelievable" stories, all of which are true, except one. The viewer has to figure out which is the lie.

It looks like there will be a total of 6 episodes. This is what Penn & Teller: Secrets of the Universe became, and is what they are doing instead of Bull* on Showtime.

Thanks for the heads up. I really miss Bulls**t.
If you stop responding to them or put them on ignore, then eventually they'll go away.

Me too. Apparently they were thinking about doing a final show about what on Bulls**t was actually bull. Penn has said there were some topics they've either changed their mind on, or were wrong.

That's obvious to most of us already.

Equipment includes a buncha stuff that I no longer have interest in detailing

There were some things I disagreed on. I preferred shows like Conspiracy Theories, Bottled Water and Video Games to ones like Recycling.

I agreed with them on most topics. I'm trying to remember if any were ones I really disagreed with, but can't recall any. My favorite was the one about organic food where people swore how much better organic food tasted. Then, they did the taste test in front of the organic market. :lol:

Definitely will watch, also hope they bring over "Fool Us" from the UK, watched the first episode online and liked it a lot. Also loved BS.
