    Programme made by Vice for channel 4 following mixed race British stand up comedian Jamali.
    He is looking at extremest groups all over the world.

    I already loved this guys comedy, and his stand up is part of each episode.

    I will say I found some episode really upsetting but also over all really interesting.

    krtek a houby how's it going to end?

    Looks fascinating (from the blurb - can't play it over here) but deeply depressing.

    Points a camera at extremists (who hang themselves without any prompting) Intersperses with tedious lectures given to 20-something woke twats.

    I've watched most of these.

    It's all a bit Louis Theroux with added swearing.

    Gets surprisingly pally with racist dude. Looks sad when racist dude says/does something racist.

    Repeats the formula in another country.

    It's watchable enough stuff though.

    Well I just binged watched a number of these after being drawn in by a trailer while watching Moss' "Travel Man". I had never heard of Jamali before, these series of shows reminded me a bit of how Mark Thomas would do some of his stuff. I thought it was very interesting and I was at times gobsmacked by the level of ignorance and hatred that some of the people displayed with a straight face.
    So far I've watched the National Socialists, EDL, Israel's version of ISIS, Swedish "anti immigrant" fascists and the Ukranian White nationalists.
    I also found it quite scary how quickly some of these "movements" can gain momentum and support given the right conditions.

    I just watched the last remaining show in that series that I didn't watch yesterday, with the black supremacists.
    Wow, just wow. I'm finding it hard to believe the sorts of things I saw in this series. Found it rather disturbing but hopefully they will all remain mostly tiny fringe movements with no widespread appeal or support.

    I love hate thy neighbour, I've seen almost all of them except the last two....

    Keep an eye out because you can get free tickets to see the stand up bits being filmed in London ;)

    :thumbs:
    I've only seen the S1 episodes that Channel 4 has aired so far, apparently there's another 10 S2 episodes filmed earlier this year that I've got to look forward to.

    Legal free to air telly hasn't caught up yet and my "Kodi/Covenant favourite tracker" says "No stream available". No worries though I'll catch up with S2 later.

    After watching season 1, my first impressions of Jamali is that he's done very well for a youngun and the fact that he likes the genius Bill Hicks is another bonus.
