1,000 Ways to Die, an anthology television series, which aired on Spike/Spike TV from May 14, 2008 to July 15, 2012 showcased shocking reenactments of deaths of individuals who often met the grim reaper in very unorthodox or outlandish ways. Often recreated in a fast-paced, very tongue-in-cheek manner, the stories were based on actual events, but dramatic license was liberally used. Voice-over-narration provided background information on each death. The deaths were recreated in a variety of ways including witness testimonials, historical tidbits, scientific expert analysis, graphic computer-generated imagery animation, interviews, live-action recreation, and even actual footage, when available. Each death ended with a title which was a pun, often based on some popular word or phrase. Written by rleegray

amazing and funny what else
6 January 2017 | by See all my reviews

its true that it's not the type of shows where you would watch again or maybe you would but maybe after a long while, i know i did but never the less, the show from my simple view is unique if i may say its got the fear factor working pretty well but yet its manage to be funny what made it odd for me is that it claim that these accidents are real happened in real life stories i mean if that true, then there is so much to learn from this show in a scary hilarious sometimes weird ways to die mostly in an irony fashion which i like a lot i mean its something like final destination and some other similar shows and movies but it makes you laugh and the intro is just sick good sick i mean it goes, in the end something like that: "and every day we live we are lucky that we managed to be alive because every day we live we face a 1000 ways to die".

that's it.
