There's a common myth that alcohol and drugs help people get more honest with one another. In reality, drugs and alcohol get in the way of honesty and genuine emotion more often than not. The Cabin with Bert Kreischer seems to want to create a party environment so that guests can ultimately let down their guard and have thoughtful discussions. He does seem genuinely curious about topics like coming out as gay to one's parents, or how someone's heritage influences their art, but the drinking and smoking tends to interfere with his interviews, rather than aid them. That would probably be fine if antics featured in the The Cabin were genuinely funny. Instead, it feels like Kreischer and his guests are mostly reaching for easy laughs. As in real life, what's hilarious to someone who is drunk or high usually does not come off as such to someone who isn't.
