GH tv show
"30 Days" on FX next Wednesday night (6/22).
It's from the same guy that made "Supersize Me". He now has his own show where he does something for 30 days and then makes a 1 hr show about it. Tonight's show was about him and his fiance trying to live on minimum wage for 30 days(it was very good). On upcoming episodes he's going to be a college drunk for a month, a muslim for a month, etc.
Next week's episode, according to the preview, is about him lifting and using GH for a month. I don't know if it's gonna be a great show or not, but I figured you guys would be interested.

Ya I saw this too. Actually I believe it is going to be someone else actually because he cannot take the GH legally, but this guy meets the qualifications.

Yeah i saw the previews after the first show and its "and average couch potato." The guy looked like your average desk worker with a nice gut who drinks beer.
"Anti-Aging" (June 22): Scott Bridges, age 35, uses Human Growth Hormone (HGH) and testosterone injections, nutritional supplements and workouts, in an effort to counter the effects of aging.
"Everybody wants to live forever, everyone wants the fountain of youth, but the question is, what price are we willing to pay for that?" Spurlock said.

for 30 days? guess he's not front-loading. too bad he can't/won't use IGF instead of HGH, 30 days of IGF would actually do something.

Yeah, this just goes to show you how ignorant most people still are to our lifestyle. These guys are actually doing a documentary on it, and yet they still can't do their research and get it right to know wtf they're doing. So how can we expect these dumbass politicians to even pick up a single peice of literature when they;re on their banning bandwagon.
So then the outcome of this will be skewed, probably not work and then the media/public will be even more ignorant because they think what they're watching is how you do things....my god, this guy is just a contributer to the problem....

Im sure he will mention something along the lines of how long HGH therapy is usually run for, but even wit ha test product, 30 days isnt that long, especially if they use a test cyp. I could see if they threw d-bol in there, then im sure we'd see some changes.

You guys have to remember what makes for good TV. Would they put a show about how someone took something and got no results... would be boring...

Thats the whole premise(sp.?) of the show though. He does something for 30 days to see if something, whatever it is can be accomplished in that amount of time. The first one was a great show. Him and his wife were in it though, and he is great in the show, just like he was in Super Size Me. The thing is though the rest of the shows aren't gonna have him in it. So the rest of the shows might suck.

Thanks for the link. It appears that this show may actually be good. I hope that he is objective and have views from both sides of the issue. Imagine the GH guy being serious about his weight training, incoporate sensible diet and is injecting GH under doctor's supervision then his results may actually help GH usage explode in sales.Originally Posted by captain chet

The "Binge Drinking Mom" and "Off the Grid" look very good. As someone mentioned above, it'll depend on the people that do it and how far they're willing to go w/ it. After seeing the first show, I was under the impression that Spurlock was going to do every one, which would be better.
I can almost gaurantee that there will be things in the next episode that will anger informed and educated GH users. That seems to happen with all shows like this, they don't get the full accurate story because that's less entertaining for the casual viewer and they don't have the time.
Hopefully though, they do things correctly and show a positive side. If you look at the other topics, you'll notice that most, if not all of them try to put you in someone else's shoes (he talked about this in the first episode, btw).
They showed minimum wage workers in a positive light and I'm sure they'll do the same w/ the gay & muslim episodes, probably all of them. So there's a good chance that it will be a decent show.

I dont think politicians are going to be too happy with the outcome of this show. I saw a tiny clip during the preview for it in which the guys girlfriend goes "wow the fat is really coming off!" This is gonna show that the stuff works... BUT it also states "Everybody wants to live forever, everyone wants the fountain of youth, but the question is, what price are we willing to pay for that?" That leads me yto believe that they will be doing blood tests etc and after the 30 days he will get another one showing his lipids and test levels and everything else all out of whack, which i think parents will use to their advantage ("see what that **** does to you?" blah blah) Im really looking foreward to how this show is going to turn out, but im assuming that if everything goes greatly and this guy has no negatives but all positives about steroids, then the networks wouldnt air it.

I read somewhere that he uses test and HGH to "become stronger and faster than he was in High School." I'm looking forward to seeing it.

Spurlock is good. He will present this topic in an honest objective manner.
Spurlock wants answers to questions. He's not in this stand on a soapbox. He really wants to answer the question, "Is there a fountain of youth and is GH and test it?"
SuperSizeME was one of the greatest films of all time. Anyone who hasn't seen it should definitely. Awesome presentation of the obesity crisis.

Just read over at BB.com that Bob Chick will be training the guy that's on HGH. Definitely looking forward to viewing this!

Turns out I'm going on a road trip and won't even be home to watch the show.
Hopefully they'll show it again on Sunday night like they did last week.

That's the first thing I thought too. He should have done IGF for 30 days.Originally Posted by Matthew D

I am actually working with the guy who does the animation for that show. On the GH episode tomorrow, I did the 20 sec cut out bit about the three rules with the guy getting shot up by needles.
don't know bout the show, we only get a few voice tracks, but I can vouch for the animation.

Spurlock vs. Mosey
It looks like some lady named Mosey has
done the Mickey D's diet thing and has actually
lost weight buy chosing her meals carefully and
using moderate exercise!
Imagine that losing weight by counting your calories
Im not sure what her motivation was to do the film.
Was it too descredit Spurlock or to make the public
more aware that good health and diet comes from
making the right food choices and exercise. Hmmm.
At any rate here is a link that compares the two diets
gives more info..

I was going to do the Mc D diet and lose weight. I was looking at getting a scollarship for it but when i emailed them they said that they had already proven that you can lose weight on Mc. D's :/

The wife is a bitch. I hate that they bring the whole "family/lifestyle" into it. This dude needs to shut up and train.
06-22-2005, 11:47 PM
haha, no ****. Why doesn't she work out too? Instead of just standing there bitching. She sure could use it.Originally Posted by DieTrying
