Some Were Old When They Died....
12 November 2016 | by (United States of America) – See all my reviews

"Too Young to Die" is an inappropriate title for this documentary series. For example, featured in Season 1 are Judy Garland, 47, Philip Seymour Hoffman, 46 and Natalie Wood, 43. They were not young and should not have been included. I can understand including celebrities who were REALLY too young, such as Heath Ledger, Kurt Cobain, etc. Season 1 focuses on all white people as well. Why not Jimi Hendrix? Bruce Lee? More thought should have been placed into which celebrities were featured.

Each documentary is well presented and thoroughly researched, however. For example, the John Belushi and Sharon Tate documentaries revealed a lot of facts which I had never heard brought to light.

I am hoping that Season 2 focuses on diverse celebrities who were really too young to die.
