Be it my immature sense of humor or my unashamed love for Nic Cage, I really enjoyed this show. It's informative, but also a lot of fun. At only 20 minutes a pop, it never gets caught up in trying to be too educational. In structure, it's similar to VH1's Best Week Ever, featuring famous comedians and random film clips to keep you engaged. Cage is all in too, balancing a winking self-awareness of his gonzo, "let's get weird" reputation with a pseudo-seriousness that says "Pay attention. I'm Nicolas Fucking Cage." It all works, even if it keeps things light.
