I've watched both of these. I didn't really know what either was about, apart from the obvious 'LA' in the title.

With the first episode being about stray dogs, I was kinda 'meh', but it was alright. The guy who totally transformed that woman's aggressive dog with the muzzle was pretty cool.

Last night's was a better episode, far more interesting. Quite said as well, especially with that Javier guy, and the look on his face when they told him about the test results. :(

I didn't realise that Louis lived in LA now.

Yeah, that was unreal. Marrying a guy on his deathbed seems like a storyline from Grey's Anatomy (I think it might actually have been) but it was even worse to see it in real life.

Louis :wub:

I got a bit choked up with that marriage bit. Reminded me of my mum and dad renewing their vows in the hospice, supposed to be happy but it was like a dry run for a funeral, strawberry floating awful.

I don't get what killed the chap that sounded camp, the cancer was gone but he had a massive wound left that wouldn't close, yet he had been living with this wound for 150 days in the hospital. wtf?

Any medical people want to elaborate.

Two of the three cases were a massive waste of taxpayers money, the millions spent on them when they had very little chance could have been diverted to medical services that had a higher chance of preventing death. Even though the other guy did pull through, it is arguably even worse because the injury was self afflicted due to drug abuse, and they didn't think he did have a hope in hell.

Kind of felt sorry for the flasher, the fact that he is considering chopping his man bits off to solve his problem is quite sad.

Also yeah the guy who lives in the van is a strange one, he made a mistake and it ruined his life so its understandable that he is pretty pissed about it (assuming he wasn't lying).

Seeing the parole officer dig into that ex-teacher was strawberry floating brutal, talk about twisting the knife.

Yeah, You've got to agree with that Louis said about starting to feel like you almost like them and then you remember what they've done, It's so hard to give them a second chance.

That was a fantastic episode.

i always enjoy the louis theroux shows and these three were very good. The second one for me though was heavily depressing as i have had a couple of my close family die because of cancer and i have seen what it does to people who have it. The final episode was also interesting because of the laws but also how in the U.S the laws and punishment seem to be the same for different crimes.

Thought the 3rd episode was just going over old ground and too similar to his previous doc on pedo's.

Felt sorry for the woman who strawberry floated the 14 year old boy though, cos its hardly child abuse, a 14 year old boy getting to strawberry float his teacher, well i'm sure we all wished it at some point with some teachers.

The rest though bemoaning how tough it was for them... then most of them too cowardly to mention the details of their crimes. These people are some of the least deserving of sympathy in the entire world. strawberry float em.

It's not alright for a TEACHER to strawberry float a student, never mind a 14 year old boy, whether young males fantasise about such a scenario has no bearing. She abused her power.

ITT people think that girls don't have the same fantasies about strawberry floating teachers.

Wheres the victim? Kid got his willy wet and has major bragging rights nows. No harm done.

I'm not a girl and neither are you FE, but it is my understanding that girls may fantasize about their teachers but be far less willing to take it any further than a boy.

New series starting now on heavy drinkers. Louis is going to have to work really hard to get anything coherent from these people. They have been hard to pity so far.

It is sad, but shows how easy it is to spiral out of control and then it becomes a way of life. That french woman looks awful.

Guy with the liquid stomach is exactly how my dad was before he died, except he wouldn't have it that alcohol was the cause.
