While I am a big fan of Louis Theroux, its a shame that the ufo community is represented in the mainstream in this way. But having said that, Louis
really does come across complete nutbags in his shows. Remember the one when he visited a community of survivalists in the middle of nowhere, whom
were preparing for the imminent arrival of the NWO (this show was back in '97 I believe), and he ends up visiting a white supremist neo-nazi guy..
now HE was scary. Took the gloss off the show.. I kinda liked the survivalists and thought they were generally good people of good principles. But
then Louis visited some truly disturbing characters and tainted the whole apple cart.
Mind you, perhaps it's the old adage 'any publicity is good publicity' - even if it's negative and ridiculing, it's still getting the awareness
out there. I remember there was a cow mutilation in that episode and it seemed like Louis was witnessing the aftermath of a real event that took
place. But who knows, the scenes could be set up to appear that way.
Then again, if you look at other episodes, like the one on the creepy British man in the tweed hat running the Asian mail order bride service, or the
one on the porn industry where Louis actually gets his kit off to see if they would cast him - these things all probably did happen unscripted. It's
a nutty world out there!
