Watch 1000 Ways to Die
- 6 Seasons
1000 Ways to Die is a pseudo-documentary style television show that discusses the various ways in which a person could die or be killed. Because the show's primary purpose is to entertain, the deaths are discussed with dark humor by a male narrator. The narrator emphasizes the intent to entertain by laughing at or mocking certain deaths. All stories told are based on actual events and are recreated by actors under safe conditions. Due to the show title, each episode features a random selection of deaths. Each death is numbered and features a title containing a pun or other playful wording. The half hour show describes an average of 4-5 deaths per episode, though more or less might be featured depending on the length of each section. Most of the featured deaths take place in the modern era, but occasionally a historical death will be featured in order to add a little variety to the show. Each death segment begins with an introduction to the person or people involved with the impending death. This introduction includes a name and a basic description of their job, personality, or temperament. The description then describes the problems or circumstances this person generally faces that could lead to the death. The fatal event then occurs, and an expert discusses what would cause the death in that particular circumstance or why the warning signs would have been ignored. The segment always ends with the narrator confirming that the person is now dead, often attributing it to the stupidity of the person involved.
