John Saffron vs God (episode 3)

This is my favourite episode so far, and for one reason: Father Bob, Cantankerous Catholic Priest. This guy kicks ass. He refers to parts of the diasis as 'that thing' (putting greater emphahsis on 'thing' if the recipient gets confused). When down town, he gets worried about all the Protestants. He made some reference to Jews roaming about counting their money. He goes on about putting holy water on whatever he wants, and asked John to mention that foreign people eat babies in a sermon he was giving. He is also confused about whether he likes chocolates. He's just awesome.

The Ku Klux Klan bit was... scary. Particularly the uniforms. They wouldn't let John join (his mother being Jewish, and all), but he found a loop hole that allowed any kids he might have to join. The Klan guy seemed a little miffed at this.

The Palestinian bit was not as interesting, though it was short. Plus I wanted Fatwah to win.

And it's true: Buddha was a spoiled rich kid.

Just fabulous. Go Father Bob!

Yeah. That KKK guy was suprisingly Charasmatic. I'd sure join If begged.

And Safran just panned Bhuddism because he got beaten by those Zen Bhuddists.

I thought it was a good funny bit, but the Palestinian bit should have gone to the second guy. He had the lisp down perfect. The KKK bit was actually pretty scary, the Grand Dragon was charismatic and had no problem admitting to a camera that they were a "discrimate organization. We're discriminate, racist, and bigoted."

I actually wasn't so big on the Catholic segment... the priest came across like the world's biggest asshole to me. Also, Segment #3 just seemed like a plug for the Music Jambouree DVD.

Still, the KKK bit was hilarious. "I have blonde hair and blue eyes... I mean, I'm whiter than Hitler! If he went to school with me, I'd be the one beating HIM up for being a wog!"  laff

Wasn't the door-to-door atheist segment supposed to air in episode 3, though?

Yeah, I did read your comments at the top of this page. I can see where you're coming from - I just didn't find him as funny as you... Although the fact that he still made those comments KNOWING this footage would be on national television has gotta be worth something.  tongue

John Saffron vs God (episode 4).

Wow. This episode has managed to both disturb me and send me into violent paroxyms of laughter. The disturbing part? The goat throat slashing and testicle eating bit. Irk. Oh, and getting shot at and stoned. All part of the job.
The laughter bit? "Bowling for Mallenstein". First up, it was nice to see a Jewish gun nut who upheld the Jewish world domination theory. 55 guns? Sure. However, the real fun kicked in when John admitted that his show was mostly watched by 'left-wing pinkos', and so adjusted his interview accodringly. What follows is the most hilarious Michael Moore parody I've ever seen (well, alright, the ONLY Michael Moore parody I've ever seen), except the humour is multiplied one hundred fold. And Bambi's mother? Totally priceless.
The bit at the end was a pleasent, if unspectacular, epilogue. Qibla!

Oh yes, and one more thing...

"You're either a latter day saint... or a latter day ain't."

So hillarious. The extreme mormon trailer made me laugh so hard it hurt. I nearly vomited with the goat testies though, innapropriate. Who goes to haiti during civil war? I dont hate moore, due to him doing a good job at getting as many pinko lefties to vote kerry, I acknowledge the whole heston thing in BFC was lame. Touche senor safran.

The goat testicle eating bit was freaky, and when he actually squeezed it out I nearly threw up. 'Extreme Mormons' was awesome though, I half expect to see that in the cinemas next week. They challenge the local gang to a bike race.... hahaha.  laff
Bowling for Mermelstein was pretty cool, 55 guns in one house. Shooting guns looks like fun.  smile

Extreme Mormons was hilarious - I can't believe those people actually thought it was a real trailer and started commenting on it.

The voodoo bit was just a plain bad idea - after all, they did get that stone thrown at them & all. The bit where that guy squeezed the goat testacles & the stuff came out of it was just fucking disgusting. They definately shouldn't have included the goat slaughter bit - I spent most of that scene looking away. Still, you gotta hand it to Safran. He went through a LOT to make this series.

As for Bowling For Mermelstein - pretty funny. It was more of a dig at political issues rather than religious issues, but still made me laugh. As did the Qibla bit at the end.

Oh, and by the way - I've looked up next week's description on Foxtel Digital's TV guide, and it appears that the door-to-door athiest segment is coming up on Monday. Hurrah!  smile

Also, Merrick & Rosso Unplanned returns tonight. HURRAH!  big grin

Ahh. Thats nothing you cant see on hardcore pornography. And in the credits it said copyright 2003. So maybe it was filmed before the political crisis.

I watched the goat bit with me Grandmamee. She likes Safran, and south park  big grin

I tried to shield her eyes and said "Grandma, dont look!" But she just said "Oh, I've seen worse things than that in my life"

So, The Chaser Decides, eh? Not bad, but for me it had more 'oh ho ho, that's clever' bits than genuine laugh-out-loud moments. Still, I'll definitely be watching next week.

I never really liked Happy Tree Friends. While it was kind of funny to see adorable little animals getting brutally massacred one after another, it kind of wears off.

John Saffron vs God (episode 5)

Heh heh heh... that priest was a nice bloke. Plus, the Mafia had previously blown up his Church because he was trying to lure young people away from organised crime. He's hardcore.
This made the scene with John's 'confession' even more excrutiating to watch. I couldn't look at the screen. Oh my.
Luckily, I was giggling a lot too.
Hinduism's full of crazies? Cool!
'I was wondering how he was going to trick people into thinking he'd stuck the needle in my cheek... then I realised he wasn't going to.'  laff
And all that Dalai Llama 'bashing' (well, just pointing things out, really), was amusing as hell. Papal power!
Oh yes... huzzah for door-to-door atheism! Realised at last!

Wow, they actually did 4 segments in this episode... The first segment with the priest was even embarrasing to watch as a viewer, despite the fact that I was laughing my ass off the entire way through. You gotta hand it to the priest, though - he took it amazingly well.

The Dalai Llama bit wasn't as funny as it could have been, but it was still interesting. Man, the Pope has a bad reputation. Then again, I would've got most of the questions wrong myself, too.  tongue

Hinduism had some funny moments, particularly when he got the needle stuck through his cheek - despite the fact it made me yell "Oh fuck!" when he really put it through. Heh, John should road test some more of the crazier religions, they're always so much more entertaining.  big grin

Finally, the door-to-door atheism segment was also full of funny moments. Although most of the reactions were pretty typical, some of them were just plain priceless... Unforunately, I forgot what the rant at the end was about.

Still, I'd have to say this was the best episode so far. Full of funny moments.

John Safran vs God: Episode 5
My favourite episode so far, but I was a bit disappointed during the door-to-door atheism section. I was hoping for full-blown tantrums from the Mormons, but no, they had to just close the door on him. Bah I say!
The Hinduism part was hilarious, especially when he just straight-out asked the guru what the meaning of life was and the guru walked back inside. And his closing comment: "I came to India looking for a Hindu guru... and all I got was a spoilsport Atheist!"
The priest from the first section was very cool, and he really took it well when he told him he had masturbated in his bed it looked like he was trying not to laugh.
The Dalai Llama bit was OK, but if he asked me I would have said the Dalai Llama just to spite him. Although if he asks you to guess who said what it would be a tad too obvious if the answer was the Pope. He probably cut out 3000 people saying it was the Dalai Llama just so he could have a segment on it.
Also Safran's angriest episode, I cowered on the couch during his (three?) rants, afraid of the spittle flying through the air.
