I'm not sure how season two of Fact Checkers Unit escaped our attention back in January, but thanks to Samsung's official blog which highlighted this hilarious series today, we now know better. And let me tell you, if you haven't seen any of the new episodes yet, you're in for a treat.
Fact Checkers Unit started as a short film with Bill Murray, then turned into a web series (Hulu has the first season episodes as well), and thanks to Samsung, MTV, SXM Entertainment, and Moxie Pictures has now reached season two. All five episodes of this season maintain high production quality mixed with occasional Galaxy Note usage scenarios and top notch humor that is sure to crack a smile on your face.
As for the cast of season two, there is no shortage of familiar names here - we have Mary Lynn Rajskub (Chloe from 24, looking better than ever), T-Pain, Moby, Sugar Ray (Mark McGrath), DMC from Run-DMC, Kyle Glass, and others. Each episode is about 4-5 minutes, so clear about half an hour on your schedule - it'll be worth it, I promise. I was hooked after the first minute.
And now, let's watch, shall we?

FCU probably has the highest production value of any semi-promotional videos of a mobile device I've seen in a long time, possibly ever. Bravo, Samsung, et al. Keep it up - I'd love to see more videos in a similar vein in the future.
