Chicago Trib on "30 Days"

Venturing away from all that news, news, news... towards having a life... here's a post about a TV show I actaully liked. "30 days" on Fx. Here's a review:

"Social critic and documentarian Morgan Spurlock is something of a Michael Moore Lite

That's not to say that his work, famously taking on the fast-food industry in the movie 'Super Size Me,' is any less iconoclastic or hard-hitting. But Spurlock himself is more amiable, next-door neighborly and less contentious than Moore, at least in personality, and his West Virginia good ol' boy roots may well enable him to go down more palatably in red states. In terms of attacking the establishment, though, Spurlock is every bit as subversive."
