Just did a search on Louis Theroux but unfortunatly found him in the archives
so I thought I would start another thread on his documentries.
Just watched The Most Hated Family In America and was blown away by some of the content.This family is sad and deluded. It's a must watch.
Any one else seen any of his other works and can reccomend them?

I recently rewatched When Louis Met Jimmy which is one of my faves. Another one is Louis Theroux's Weird Christmas, where he got together a bunch of people from the first series of Weird Weekends, including a fundamentalist Christian, a man who acts as a medium for an alien, and a porn star! They can't even agree to disagree about their views - hilarious.:D The one coming up on BBC 2 looks as though it could be pretty intense...

The entirety of the When Louis Met....series which first aired back in 2001 is superb. In each episode Louis spends time with a different 'celebrity' and immerses himself into their lives. Normally they're the kind of celeb which would make you cringe - Paul Daniels, Keith Harris (and Orville) Chris Eubank and so on. The BBC apparently wanted more, but Louis had problems finding people who wanted to appear.
Theres a very good stand alone episode where he trains with some wrestlers in the US, who show themselves up to take themselves WAY too seriously, and an show scheduled for sometime over the Xmas period where Louis goes on patrol with the Philadelphia PD.
Most of the old shows sometimes turn up on channels such as Dave.
