New Show I Watched

09 Nov

Sometimes I watch the strangest shows on television.  Maybe I should rephrase that.  Sometimes Hollywood puts out the strangest shows on television that of course this oinker can’t pass up and has to watch.  Take for instance, a couple of weeks ago on A&E a new show came out called Fear: Buried Alive.  Now, it intrigued me and mom. We thought you know we gotta check this out and see what it is all about.  Now, I’m kind of like on one hoof WOW ya’ll did what and on the other hoof like that was time I can’t get back in my life.  Why do you say?  Let me break it down for you like only this oinker can – snorts.

There are three subjects that volunteered for this experiment.  Now here’s something I forgot to mention – this is live television.  Not only will they be buried alive in a coffin six feet under ground, they will be wired so that doctors on scene can watch their vitals and there are cameras as well as sound in the coffins.  There are two guys and one girl.

The entire reasoning behind being buried alive is to conquer fears.  Mom said she could somewhat maybe do the buried alive part.  I mean, there are so many people watching you that they aren’t going to let anything happen.  But that’s where they start throwing in twists.  One twist is that as you are laying in your coffin, you are strapped in and then they push a button and your restraints are tighter.  Another time, they play on your biggest fear.  In one box with a guy, they let in a snake.  Another box with the girl, they let in large rats.  Another box with a guy, they let in thousands of huge roaches.  All of this while you are six feet under the ground in a box.  Can you handle that now?

During this time, the audio is turned off and on between the boxes so they can’t talk to each other while they adapt to their biggest fears.  Now here you are in a box, hot, dark, you have something in the box with you, you are tied down and now you don’t have any communication with anyone – you are cut off from the world.  You are thinking to yourself, “What have I gotten myself into?”

The guy with the snake – did I tell you his history?  When he was little, he fell in a hole with a momma
snake and her babies.  The momma snake bit him on the arm.  And there he is with a snake in his coffin with him.  He tapped out during a commercial towards the end.  He couldn’t take it when the snake started slithering up from his feet towards his head.

Then the coffin with the girl, dirt starts falling in from the top of her coffin and she thinks it’s caving in.  The remaining guy, his alarm starts going off and he thinks he’s running out of oxygen.  Of course, mom and me called this – it was all in the plans to make them “think” they had immediate death upon them.  A little over an hour they stayed in their boxes under ground.

How long would you stay?

    Oh man I started shaking when they started to lower the people in the coffins into the ground and cover them with dirt.
    I was ok til they started dropping in rats, snakes and bugs.
    No way would I even get near that coffin-oh man terrifies me.

      You watched it?! Mom was cool with being in the coffin and going down. When they started dropping in the bugs, snakes and rats – she was so out of there. Shivers to megatroid. Of course, my daddy was screaming, “I’m afraid of bunnies” in hope they would put bunnies in his coffin – snorts. XOXO – Bacon

    I’d stay inside as long as it takes to rot – because you would not get me to agree to such an experiment while I was alive!

      See I don’t think these guys and girl even got money for doing it. They said it was to overcome their fears. Snorts – as if. And when I heard the hiss of the snake – don’t worry. Mom said she would be clawing her way up and out. XOXO – Bacon

    Sounds like they are creating more fear than releasing it. No one would love being in a box with a snake crawling up your leg, even the snake!

      Amen to that! Mommy told daddy that would make her fears even *worse* not help them in the least. Crazy people for sure. XOXO – Bacon

    You need a nice Christmas movie to watch instead! This is scary stuff. I’m not sure if I want to buried alive if I’m dead.

    Good Cod, Bacon. I can’t watch shows like that, I’d pee myself or barf on mom. This would not be appreciated. When I wake her up at 3am, its not appreciated either and I’d be doing that every night. A nice Garfield movie suits Kal and I like a glove.

      Snorts! I love Garfield and other movies as such. I have other movie reviews coming up that might be up to your liking – I hope 🙂 XOXO – Bacon

      Snorts! Mom said the show really didn’t impress us that much. It was all about overcoming fears. After some of the stunts they did, we would be MORE in fear of these things. XOXO – Bacon

    Well, my claustrophobic butt isn’t even going to think about that show. So instead, I’ll relate this…

    I remember an episode of Tales From the Crypt that was told by a man who, as part of a circus stunt, was buried alive in a coffin that contained only a few hours worth of air. He wouldn’t be exhumed until the next day, where he would amaze the crowd by coming back to life from the dead. As he explains, he received a “transplant” from some wacky scientist who killed a cat and extracted the cat’s “nine lives” and put them into this man. As the story goes, our hero dies seven times, most of the deaths a result of efforts to make money as a sideshow freak (I think one “lucky” audience member pays a large sum to shoot an arrow through his heart). The buried alive stunt will obviously be his last since he will only have one life remaining after that. As he concludes his narrative, he thinks of the cat as a martyr who gave its life to instill in him this unique gift… and that’s when it hits him….

    The cat burned its first life on the operating table, and he’s on life #9 now!

    The show ends with the guy beating on the coffin and screaming in vain for someone to let him out. Of course, nobody can hear him……

    And I’m sure there were plenty of bad horror puns by the Crypt Keeper during that episode!
