Waste of time

One of the most pointless and dumbest shows I have seen. Annoying cast, just completely pointless. Don't waste your time with this show.

Great show

It’s a good show. I’d let my kid watch it when he grows up. If you have to shelter your kid because you don’t want them to repeat the actions then you aren’t teaching the correct values and you’re closing your child off. I think it’s a great show. Can’t wait until it’s on weekly.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (2 ):
Kids say (1 ):

This outrageous but not-that-compelling series features a group of young people doing dangerous stunts in order to entertain themselves and others. Every episode features part or all of the crew, who have a following thanks to their online videos doing something at work, at the gym, at home, and other random places that they characterize as stupid. Some of the antics are ridiculous, while others are extremely dangerous. The bigger and more dangerous the exploit, the more successful it's deemed.

Most of the show is centered on the crew's outlandish behavior. However, to be fair, it does host the occasional amusing moment, especially when they unleash a prank or stunt on unsuspecting bystanders. This makes what they're doing more appealing, especially to viewers who don't have the maturity (or basic common sense) to not try these activities at home. Too Stupid to Die may be fun for some, but it's rather socially irresponsible.
