In the final season of FX’s 30 Days the energy crisis, handicap rights, animal rights, same sex parenting, gun control, and Native American rights are discussed. As a whole 30 Days ended on a good note.
In season two of 30 Days immigration, outsourcing, religion, new age medicine, abortion, and the prison system are addressed as six new people spend 30 days in the life of another American. Season two of 30 Days does a good job improving over the first season.
