    I don't know if anyone else is watching this show or if someone else has started a post about it already, but I have been truly inspired by this show. The show is about 4 guys who made a list of 100 things they wanted to do before they died and set out to complete it. Soon MTV took notice and produced a show about it.

    The truly amazing thing about the show is that everywhere the go people want to help them accomplish things, and for every list item they cross off, they help a random stranger coss something off of thier list.

    It is an amzing show that asks the world "What do you want to do before you die?" So I would love to hear stories of how the show inpired people or post what you want to do before you die.



    Here's the site http://www.theburiedlife.com/

    Just thought I'd add this. This is an excerpt from the poem by Matthew Arnold written over 150 years ago that inspired the title, it's very moving to me

    "But often, in the world’s most crowded streets,
    But often, in the din of strife,
    There rises an unspeakable desire
    After the knowledge of our buried life;
    A thirst to spend our fire and restless force
    In tracking out our true, original course"

    Yeah I've seen previews of that before, it reminded me of the sentiment in the movie The Bucket List.

    well guess there aren't that many fans of the show on here lol. I honestly expected more since it was so good. The second episode was great btw. Fun list item, Ben actually made a really good toast and avoided the bride and groom pretty well after, and they were amazing by brining together a father an son like that. I'm sure it was one of the most rewarding things they did for a stranger, they truly did change those guys lives for the better...and made a great episode along the way.

    It is a great show. The hijinx they get into trying to accomplish their list is pretty funny, and it provides a great message.

    That being said, I've seen the commercial so many times that I agree with my roomate, who says:

    If they come to Portland and ask me what I want to do before I die, I'll say I wanna punch them in the face for asking it so many times! ;)

    its a good show when they try to help others but when they crashed the playboy mansion and the wedding it was boring and i wanted them to get back to the other guys' stories
