Morgan Spurlock

I don’t know if anyone else caught it last night, but Morgan Spurlock was on The Daily Show last night. Thanks to Julie, who gave me a timely reminder without which I would have missed it.

It wasn’t a spectacular interview - but he did mention his show “Thirty Days” which airs its third episode tonight (check your local listings). I’m interested in tonight’s episode. A Christian fellow agrees to go live in a Muslim community as a Muslim for 30 days. Great TV (reportedly) ensues.

In any case, I just wanted to say that Spurlock really strikes me as an O.K. guy. Someone it would be fun to hang out with and discuss mundane stuff with over a beer or two. He seemed a little nervous in the interview, but not more than what you’d expect for the normal person in such a situation. And I know I’d be freaking out. (Heck, it would be cool to hang out with both Spurlock and Stewart for that matter.)

I guess it’s refreshing to see people on TV who don’t seem consumed with themselves or with being fake, who are passionate about something and getting to do what they enjoy.

So, Morgan Spurlock, if you’re ever in the Fall River/New Bedford MA area, contact me for a beer at one of our local establishments.

If you missed the Daily Show last night, catch it again today around 7:00 PM 8:00 PM (check local listings). They were doing their last show in their current studios, and no new shows will be produced until they’re settled in at their new location.

It'll be on at 8 pm ET and again at 11:30. They used to rerun the show at 7 pm but I guess they figured it gets good enough ratings to run during prime time instead. :)
