Spikes hit show 1000 ways to die is an original program,I believe it is educational as usually the people to die are perverts,thieves,druggies,Ladies of the night,  thugs,gang bangers,or worse ,I believe this program teaches karma,But what exactly is karma?We constantly hear the word ‘karma’ in conversations without knowing the true meaning of the word.Someone may be describing an accident or a terrible incident that has happened in his or her life. Then in the next sentence you hear, “I must have been a terrible person in a past life, I guess it’s my karma.”Many people use the term without knowing the meaning of karma. They usually use ‘karma’ to explain bad things that have happened to them.According to Wikipedia, the definition of karma is the concept of “action” or “deed”. So it refers to positive and negative experiences.The karma meaning simply refers to the process of cause and effect. Action causes reaction. Whatever you do, something will happen.

I truly believe that if you do bad things intentionally,bad things are going to happen to you.But can this be called educational in and of itself(probably not  but, I think its a good lesson to teach)It also goes into the cause of death and gives us an insiders view as to how and why these people died.Now that i believe is very educational from a biological view point.So with that in mind I will show you several opinions about the show as well as a bio on it as well and you can make your own choice on the matter.

1000 Ways to Die is a docufiction anthology television series that premiered on May 14, 2008 on Spike. The program recreates unusual supposed deaths and debunked urban legends and includes interviews with experts who describe the science behind each death. Up until the end of season one, the final story of each episode showed actual footage of dangerous situations that almost ended in death, along with interviews with people involved in the situations. A portion of these deaths have been nominated for or have received a Darwin Award.
