1000 Ways To Die

 
There's only a few number of shows that stop me from completely ignoring TV, this is one of them. 1000 Ways To Die is a DocuFiction television series which depicts strange deaths recreated for the amazement/amusement of the viewer. Most if the deaths are really interesting since they flow in a sort of "Final Destination" way which in turn brings the question "what if?". It kinda makes you fear doing anything since at any moment you may fall victim to a random chain reaction to your death and become their next story. If you have never watched an episode, best start now! New episodes air every Tuesday at 10PM/9c on SPIKE.
Here's a taste:
bad quality
Info: 1000 Ways to Die takes a tongue-in-cheek approach to death through its presentation of stories derived from myths, science, and real-life incidents. The show is filled with black humor (particularly in the narration) which tempers the otherwise-somber theme of death. It portrays the deaths utilizing live-action recreations of the events along with expert and sometimes witness testimony, also using CGI animations, similar to those used in the popular television show CSI, to illustrate the ways people have died. A narration provides background information within each death-story, which all end with titles that are puns on popular figures of speech. Also, many people argue that " 1000 Ways to Die " shows you what NOT to do, as you will die. This warning is displayed at the beginning of every episode, encouraging the viewer to not  'not try any of the actions depicted. You will die,'

  5. The concept is good, but the show itself is a little too stressful for me. :/ But for people who like gorey stuff, this is perfect!
