Review: An 'Inside Man' that might teach you something

NOTE: I'm posting these for Adrienne Johnson, who finds herself without a working computer this weekend!
I like Morgan Spurlock. The documentarian who made "SuperSize Me" and "The Greatest Movie Ever Sold" brings a light touch to serious subjects, ensuring that the medicine goes down smoothly but memorably.

That formula works again for "Inside Man" (10 tonight, CNN), a documentary series in which he'll go inside and explore various newsy issues.

Tonight's episode is about medical marijuana and it is illuminating. Spurlock first explains the legal limbo medical marijuana sellers dwell in because of the conflict between federal and state laws, then goes to work at a California dispensary and talks to the people who work and shop there. If you have anything resembling an open mind, the episode will teach you something and make you think.

In future episodes, Spurlock examines gun culture (don't go assuming, he's a gun owner), education, bankruptcy and the drought, all in ways I suspect will engage. If someone has to go inside, Spurlock's a good choice.
