Product description

Product Description

Four episodes of the gentle, Englishman-abroad style documentary series in which Louis Theroux attempts to learn about foreign worlds or lifestyles by immersing himself in them. This collection includes Louis' semi-successful attempts to be taken seriously as a contender in the Los Angeles rap scene ('Rap'); as an up-coming extra in the world of pornographic film-making ('Porn'). In 'Survivalists' Louis joins a bunch of political extremists who live in the far north-west of the USA braced for the end of the world, and in 'UFOs' he attempts to contact space beings with the help of Thor Templar, the self-appointed head of the 'Earth Protectorate'. The DVD also contains the now infamous episode when Louis spent ten days with former Radio 1 deejay and charity fundraiser extraordinaire Sir Jimmy Savile OBE.

From Amazon.co.uk

Never afraid to ask the silly question, in the Best Of Louis Theroux's Weird Weekends Louis gambles on a mix of warmth and charm to gain access and insight into the people he meets. From the bizarre to the ridiculous to the downright scary, the show has brought Louis and his viewers face to face with some fairly eccentric personalities and ideas over the years. This "Best of" collection is dominated by early episodes from the series--("Porn", "Survivalists", "Gangsta Rap", "UFOs") and contains some classic moments including Louis' "fiat" gangsta rap, his audition as a porn star and his chat with neo-nazis survivalist (and "Are You Being Served" fan) Reverend Gerry Gruidl. From the frighteningly deluded to the mildly eccentric, Louis always finds some way to connect with the people he meets and as a result the series continues to rise above any desire to become overly voyeuristic, to patronise or to judge. Surreal, sometimes disturbing, and often very, very funny indeed The Best of Louis Theroux's Weird Weekends is essential viewing for any fan of the series. --Caroline Butler

On the DVD: Disappointingly this DVD has few special features and a standard TV transfer. The one special feature it does hold however is a real gem, along with a typically Louis-style introduction on the DVD and how to work it (!) you also get the chance to view a commentary by Jimmy Saville and Louis Theroux, an option which pops up on the screen throughout the programmes. Although a little awkward to access the "gems of wisdom" which spring from Mr Saville's mouth are to be savoured--the jingle-jangle tendencies of old have clearly been lost by the DJ. Added to this you get the full interview/sleep over; "When Louis Met Jimmy" the first star-based documentary, offering you the chance to glance into the weird world and mindset of Jimmy. The DVD comes in a lavishly presented package which, however, for some bizarre reason comes in a two-disc set--half the features on one and half on the other disc--which verges on being almost as annoying as the old-school flipper discs. --Nikki Disney
