HBO'S new show "VICE"


I’m a Bill Maher fan. Yeah I know he’s not religion friendly, but so what, I admire his dogged search for the truth, despite the fact that certain people in power and news stations, try to keep the general public in the dark.

Bill Maher’s talent is to bring us the news, the real news, with a touch of comedic timing that often softens the one-two punch to the gut that eventually gets people thinking outside of the box. On his show, Real time with Bill Maher, Bill doesn’t pull his punches and brings to light the stupidity of not only our political parties, but also the wacky missteps of leaders from around the world.

Recently, I began watching a new show which followed immediately after Real Time with Bill Maher on Friday nights at 11 p.m. This new show is called “Vice”. You need to watch a few episodes and I’ll guarantee that you’ll be hooked. The stories featured on “Vice” come from around the world, and cover subjects that are not easily found in the local news shows or newspapers.

The people behind the curtains are Executive Producers Bill Maher, Shane Smith, and Eddy Moretti as Chief Creative Officer, CNN’s Fareed Zakaria serving as Consulting Producer and B.J. Levin as Co-Executive Producer.

Each episode features two stories with the journalist covering the story risking his life to get the scoop.  In Episode One, correspondent Ryan Duff explains in Assassination Nation why the Philippines can be a most dangerous place to run for office.

 In the second segment, Killer Kids, correspondent, Shane Smith tells how the Taliban in Afghanistan is using children as young as six years old to be suicide bombers. The children are so young that they don’t understand that they die when the bomb goes off.

This is a great show and I think that you should take a chance and watch this thought provoking, hard hitting, eye opener show on Friday nights at 11 p.m.

You’ll thank me for the heads up.
