HBO ‘Vice’ Doc Goes Straight for the Child Suicide Bombers

April 5, 2013 | Kyle Chayka

A new Vice documentary series premieres on HBO in which founder of Vice Magazine Shane Smith along with his crew are up to their usual antics. If you were worried that they were going to go somewhere miserable and culturally complicated and be all like “What’s up with all that rape, huh?” — we caught the preview screening last night and it’s not that bad.

In the first episode, Vice focuses on young children that the Taliban is utilizing as suicide bombers (some as young as 12) and interviews them.

Premieres tonight at 11pm on HBO. Watch it if you can.
