I would not suggest families watch this with your children. If your child decides to research about her you'll find her really disgusting points of view on what should happen to those who disagree with her. She's pandering obviously...The whole "I'm white and cops give me a pass" Is revolting. I now see I have to research like before. I'm disappointed with this site.

Is It Any Good?

This curious melding of sketch comedy, earnest talk-show interviews, and Daily Show-style topical pieces would be a great big mess -- if it weren't so funny. National treasure Silverman has managed quite a trick here: She takes the topics she's addressing and the people she features on I Love You, America seriously, but she isn't afraid to laugh at anything, including herself. And she's funny. Really funny. Heading into dinner with a "Trump-voting Christian family" in Louisiana as the "first Jew" she imagines has been invited to the house, she practices her greeting: "Shalom! No, wait: Hello!"

She brings the family's 7-year-old son the gift "kids of all ages can appreciate," a remote-controlled fart machine. And she sits and has respectful, insightful, friendly, funny (!!) conversation with the family about guns and gay marriage and Obama, a pleasant evening that ends in sincere hugging. "Did we change each other's minds? Um, f--k no. But we did learn we didn't have to be divided to disagree. We can have fun! We can even love each other," says Silverman. What a hopeful idea, wrapped in an entertaining shell of a show, hosted by a woman so charming and quick that she can make you think and laugh instead of roll your eyes.
