Reviews

Three episodes of Louis Theroux's documentary series, where the deceptively baffled Englishman investigates some of America's strangest subcultures and meets some bizarre people along the way. In 'Gangsta Rap', Louis looks more out of place than usual amongst the gun-toting rappers of the American South. In 'UFOs', Louis joins up with some UFO believers and even manages to sneak into Area 51, but is that garbled recorded message really from the planet Koldas? In the bonus episode 'When Louis Met Jimmy', Louis spends some time with the eccentric DJ and presenter Jimmy Saville, and tries to find out what makes him tick. With his wardrobe full of his dead mother's clothes, his tall tales and prickly nature, Louis reveals a previously hidden side to the enigma that is Jimmy Saville.

A word of warning - if you bought the original "Volume 1" DVD (orange card box) on the Telstar label in 2001, YOU ALREADY OWN THIS DISC! This is because, for the 2006 re-release, Firefly has split the double DVD sets into single disc volumes. I was expecting previously unreleased episodes on this supposed "Volume 4", but instead ended up with a second copy of a DVD I bought five years ago. Very disappointing.

For those of you who haven't seen Weird Weekends before, this is a fantastic collection and is well worth the money. (In fact, buy all four volumes - you will not regret it.) I should point out that the "UFO" episode here is probably the weakest one in the whole series, but the "Gangsta Rap" and "Jimmy" episodes more than make up for it.

It's still pretty galling, though, that we haven't seen any new Louis Theroux DVDs for nearly half a decade. It's not as if Louis is yesterday's news - in fact, he signed a new 3 year contract with the BBC earlier this year.

I wait in eternal hope for a "complete Louis Theroux" box set...
