    Very refreshing, language and all. I busted out laughing when that woman was showing all of her hiding places in her store for her guns and Penn said "F#$K!"... Just the way he said it...

    Two thimbs up!

    This is beautiful. I knew that Penn and Teller are libertarian. I'm happy to see that they identified the reason for the Second Amendment, and talked about it.

    That was on TV almost a year ago

    When I was in Vegas last September I went to see them and they hang out after the show to talk with the public. They both expressed that they feel very strongly about the second and put a lot of effort into that episode. Penn N Teller in private are very articulate and said they appreciated hearing about how strongly the public feels about their show and really thought it was great that my son and I thought that episode was outstanding. I have that particular one on tape, and plan on converting it to DVD.

    One more thing Teller is actually about 6' tall Penn is one big guy, I'm 6'4" and he was 6'7", had to look up. :D

    I was delighted to find a relevant thread on our community forum here in the mountains to post the link, as well as two of Oleg's excellent images and a link to his website!

    The inclusion is on the third page of the thread, and since last night, the view numbers have jumped (happydance!). . .

    If you really like it then instead of watching a bootleg pirate version on the internet go buy the DVDs of the series. They aren't expensive and it's a really good series.

    Thanks, Brian! After seeing them on the internet, I'm planning on doing precisely that!

    Very cool.

    Being computer illiterate, is there any way I can save it to my hard drive or is bookmarking it the best I can do?

    To save a flash movie, you need something like this - works with IE (tried with Opera and it didn't) and it's free. Hope this helps.

    Funny line about Alan Gottlieb, "Alan Gottlieb is the founder of the Second Amendment Foundation. He loves guns and wears a bowtie. I bet you never though those two would intersect!"

    Cool segments with the Revolutionary war reenactors too.
    When is Season 3 on dvd??

    One of my absolute favorite shows. They don't make TV like this anymore.

    I own the first two seasons on DVD and "have" a copy of the third (which I'll buy when it comes out)
    The 4th season started just 2 days ago. :)

    for the libertarians on this board, you'll probably love some of the other episodes...specifically the one on The War on Drugs.
    There is also some great ones on P.E.T.A and College.

    Great stuff.

    And I tip my hat to Penn and Teller.

    These two have had quite an interesting and lengthy career in entertainment/show-biz. Penn was the voiceover for Comedy Central for many years...I have no idea if he still is because we don't have the channel anymore.

    Editing the material: You will need some software along the lines of Adobe Premiere or Macromedia Director. Get the DVD, rip the episode to your hard drive and edit away!

    As for copyright, as long as you purchase the copyrighted material, you may do as you wish. Do not re-distribute, re-sell at a flea market or charge friends and family $10 each to watch it at your house. Leave a "Tip Jar" near the TV :evil:

    BryanP - I'm pretty sure that's a legal copy. Google makes you sign up for their program and a lot of networks do post their shows up there. That one says it was provided by Showtime.

    Apparently its copyrighted video, so Google has pulled it. I think it is from the 3rd season of their "Bulls**t!" show on Showtime. I see that the first and second seasons are available on DVD, but cant find the third season.

    I don't know if it has anything to do with copyrights. I can find many of their other season 3 video segments online but not the gun control video. It seems from some write ups on personal blogs, it really pissed some died hard fans off when they made that video.
