I have loved nearly every episode I saw of seasons 1 and 2. The ones on environmentalism, sex and gun control were my faves. :D

It's pretty groovy, and I love the show, but I think they might have missed the mark. Those genetics you're stuck with, given sufficient encouragement, typically code for a lean, fast, healthy (and aesthetically pleasing) individual with as much muscle as it needs to get by rather nicely. Plenty of variation, but the alternations in the human phenotype in recorded history are too rapid to be explained by a souring (or in the case of increased height and mass) sweetening of the genetic soup. Their points about the hordes of charlatans trying to sell everything but horrificly intense work, are spot on.

I am in LOVE with Penn Gillette!

My husband's wedding gift to me was going to see P&T's live show in Vegas. To prove to hubby that he's the only one for me, I didn't make the "Penn I want your baby!" sign that I had planned on taking.

Oh well. Next time.

I agree with Kalen.

When people actually eat right (something resembling The Zone for most people) and exercise effectively (CrossFit),rather than buying supplements and doing worthless pseudo-bodybuilding routines they improve their appearance.

It takes a while and it hurts, and you have to chase function rather than form, but it works, unlike sitting in the gym doing curls and low intensity elliptical machines.

Saying that exercise doesn't work is true as long as you are talking about the completely ineffective exercise that most people do.

I have seen several people completely change the way they look doing CrossFit and The Zone, but it takes 1 to 2 years, much longer than most people have the patience to stick with a program.

At first I was concerned their message was "anti-exercise" but I think it became clearer towards the end. It's not anti-exercise, it's just anti-marketing BS -- such as (especially) infomercial BS, high-priced globo-Gyms, and supplements that may or may not help you in your goals. I also liked how they pointed out various hypocracies in the industry.

My anthropology professor and a naturopathy doctor put the point that our DNA is in constant flux and genetic errors, coding, yadda are effected by diet.
Poor nutrition eventually leads to a lot of genetic mutation and errors which can cultivate in things like cancer.

Food for thought. So I'm not totally into their locked into genetics mentality.
