Stump the King: Morgan Spurlock

Morgan SpurlockLast week was a historic one for me. Something happened that has never happened before and it actually happened twice.

Last week, as I often do, I wrote reviews of a few TV shows. The first review was for a new documentary series on Showtime. I didn't really like the show but I made a comment on how beautiful I found a young lady who was featured on the show. Well, much to my surprise, not only did she read the review but she wrote to thank me for the compliment. I was certainly flattered but I was even more surprised that someone I mentioned would actually take the time to write me.

That same week, I wrote another review of the FX series 30 Days. This particular episode featured a nice woman named Kati who spent a month with a same sex couple raising a group of kids. I wasn't really surprised to see the amount of comments this review received considering what an controversial topic the show covered. However, I never expected that Kati herself, would take the time to write me and comment on how much she enjoyed the review.

I've been working for TV Squad for a little over a year now and this is the first time anyone has written me to comment on how I reviewed them or their work and to make it more surprising, it happened twice in the same week,

As the week came to an end and the messages started to dwindle, I had a chance to reflect on what this means exactly and I came to a conclusion that simply reinforced what I have often thought... I am awesome!

Now for this week's question...

What was the name of Morgan Spurlock's character in his only acting appearance?

Congratulations G! You got the correct answer.

Morgan Spurlock was at work on a new documedy for Showtime since joining the CBS/The CW/Showtime roster
of television and radio talent in 2007. What surprises me
is that Showtime had been talking to Spurlock about launching an original parody of investigative newsmagazines and factual entertainment formats; and it could air as early as next year on the venerable pay cable

The last time Spurlock had created a reality/debate show
hybrid for Comedy Central was in 2005, when Sony Pictures Entertainment was partnering with CC parent Viacom in a previously announced question-and-answer
format titled Public Nuisance.

I thought that what he did was a parody of actual news already?

Was that the show that he paid people $5 to eat disgusting things to show that people are stupid and do anything for money, or was that the movie how he ate terrible to show that people are stupid and believe anything, err, McDonalds is evil.
