I’ve been watching the first season of his series called “30 Days”, which appears on the FX channel. So far my favorite show has been on minimum wage. Since I’ve lifted myself out of poverty there have only been two times that video has really struck me as showing an authentic portrait of what I lived. The first was “The Pursuit of Happyness” with Will Smith. Being a single parent for over eight years that movie had moments that took my breath away it was so similar to what I experienced, but that was a Hollywood portrait (even if it was based on the real life story of Chris Gardner). What Spurlock delivers in the first installment of the “30 Days” series is a fairly accurate account of trying to juggle money around to keep the rent, heat and electric bills while still being able to eat and enjoy life.
