Judge David Johnson shouldn't be alive either, but that's why he's skilled at repelling ninja attacks.
Exposing the heart-stopping journeys past the edge of human endurance.
From Animal Planet, a series sporting a surprising lack of animals.
I Shouldn't Be Alive Season 3 benefits from a fairly self-explanatory title. These are stories about people who in fact shouldn't be alive. On the disc: 10 episodes running 45 minutes each detailing the nightmarish travails these poor suckers had to face, and how they emerged to have dramatic reenactments about their experiences picked up by a basic cable channel.
• "Trapped In The Canyon"
I know what you're thinking: "Whoa, those are the most violent titles for TV episodes that I have ever seen!" Indeed, these sound more like titles for Hardy Boys mysteries, but having seen some of the re-enacted craziness that these hapless folks had to endure, I think the hyperbole is merited.
These are nerve-wracking tales to be sure, from the girl who fell off a cliff and climbed around the canyon floor with a shattered pelvis to the dopes who got lost in the woods and set off a cataclysmic forest fire to gain the attention of rescuers. Each story is worthy of a two-page spread in Reader's Digest. And if that's not a ringing endorsement, I don't know what is.
No extras, but the shows are given a nice technical treatment: a clean, nice-looking 1.78:1 anamorphic widescreen, and 2.0 stereo.
Not Guilty. You might want to put some Neosporin on that.
