In Synch

It seems that the wonderful people behind Penn & Teller: Bullshit seem to be in synch with me lately. Last week's season opener brought their circumcision episode right at a time where the subject had become rather important again (or not at all important if my intuition is correct).

This week, coming on the tail of an argu-discussion I had online regarding the morality of non-monogamous, non-traditional relationships, their new episode deals with debunking the importance/righteosuness of heterosexual monogamy. While sometimes I find their program a bit off base, and it's always easy to see how simple it can be to manipulate the program to go with whichever viewpoint they'd prefer, I have to say I thoroughly enjoyed this episode. So much of it rang true to what I'd been arguing about for a decent chuck of last week's online time.
