7 Deadly Sins
is another new documentary style series from film maker and tv personality Morgan Spurlock, this time on Showtime on Thursday evenings. Each 30 minute episode has three or so segments focusing on various people who are indulging in some way in one of seven deadly sins from Christian theology-gluttony, sloth, greed, lust, envy, pride, wrath.
This series has a different style from most of Spurlock's other shows, looking more like shot-on-film vignettes featuring real people acting out their bad impulses than a reality style video documentary. Spurlock narrates the segment intros while the real people involved in these negative activities speak for themselves on camera.
For example in the Wrath episode, they feature a women who has a web site who names and shames "home wreckers" or women who sleep with married men; there's a segment on a 'fight club' at a motorcycle club house in Oakland, California where men and women box in a ring to get their aggression out; and a segment on a manufacturer of a special type of firearm ammunition which splits up into fragments as it is fired to cause maximum damage to the target. I think it's pretty interesting for a short series.
