Penn & Teller are taking aim at the video game violence controversy in an upcoming episode of Penn & Teller: Bullshit!
-- an ongoing television series
that debunks misconceptions and popular fads.
Earlier in the week, Penn Jillette revealed the video game themed episode had begun filming, via Twitter
. Guests interviewed for the episode will include Grand Theft Childhood
co-author, Dr. Cheryl Olson, along with her husband and writing partner, Dr. Lawrence Kutner. Disbarred Miami attorney, Jack Thompson
, will also be featured in the episode.
A Penn & Teller producer told GamePolitics
the episode would likely air during the summer, but did not reveal a specific date. We can only hope that Penn gives Thompson a suitable tongue lashing or that the magical duo makes him disappear. Either way, we're good.
