The Plot

Documentary Now! - PlotThis TV-series of a mockumentary genre, created by a famous American SNL show crew with Helen Mirren as a hostess, is highly praised by critics. There are two "fixtures" of the project, F. Armisen and B. Hader, starring, and a guest cast perfectly hand-picked as well. Every episode is full of specific jokes and gags, given in a straight-faced way. The plots used are taken from real documentaries of previous years, altered a bit and dressed with humor and some kind of derision. Topics vary a lot, from cultural to political, touching upon lives of both famous and ordinary people. Another brilliant thing to be mentioned is a detailed imitation of the original style of each episode narration. One can hardly distinguish right from wrong here.
