    Default 30 Days on FX

    Anyone catch this?

    For anyone who doesn't know...the show features Morgan Spurlock, the guy who made the movie Supersize Me, which took McDonalds and other fast-food restraunts to task for serving unhealthy foods..,He proved his point by eating nothing but McDonalds for 30 days.

    Anyway, now on the FX show, he or others do other things for 30 days. On the first episode, he lived on minimum wage for 30 days to illustrate how difficult it is to live on this amount of money, especially if health care comes into play.

    His look at these things is rather simplistic, and I am usually fairly conservative about the type of stuff he is diving into, but I do have to say he does things in an entertaining way and he seems like a good guy. It was hard watching the show at times observing him living on minimum wage, when I'm sure he is pocketing a pretty penny from FX for the TV show overall. It was also pretty funny watching his girlfriend...she was kind of a wimp, and became rather bitchy without money.

    I saw parts of it. I like the "things to do for free" part - take a tour of a hospital, take a tour of a bank, etc. - WOOHOO! But why did they go to a dollar movie and then pay who knows how much for popcorn, candy, drinks? Just buy that stuff at Walmart and fill the wife's purse with it and sneek it in, genious.

    I saw it - pretty interesting perspective on the health care issues. Certainly one of the more interesting shows to start up. Looking forward to watching it further.

    I really liked the show. It was presented pretty straight forward on just how hard it is to get by on minimum wage....I'll definitely be watching the other episodes.
