Has anyone out there seen this TV show?

I happened to catch it the other night when I was having trouble sleeping. The name of the show is called "The Buried Life" and the concept of it is awesome. The four young men doing this "project" as they call it are insprirational to say the least and impressive.

These are four young men, under the age of 30. They have as they put it "broken away from the track" and what they are doing is "touring North America" - and completing a list that they came up with of 100 things that they want to do before they die. With each thing tht they complete from their list, they help a stranger do something that the stranger would like to do.

Some of the things on their list are fun - like "scream at the top of your lungs" and some are kind "pay for someone's groceries" some of lofty "pay off our parents mortgages" and some are silly "ride a roller coaster" - but, they are goals all the same; and after seeing a few of the episodes, I have no doubt that they will meet them all.

One of the shows that I saw, they completed #74 which was "help deliver a baby." They met a woman and her significant other who appeared to be alone except for the each other. They set up a Lamaze class, and went through the entire labor and delivery with her. Although they all appear to have a nice amount of humor about them, they did this with seriousness and a sense of wonderment, joy (a little fear), reverence and respect.

During the same episode, they met a young lady on the street - which is what they seem to do to find the "strangers" and asked her "what would you like to do before you die?" The young lady had lost her Mother during Hurricane Katrina - and due to various circumstances, there was no funeral for her Mother, and she had never been to the Mother's gravesite. These four young kids went and worked for tips only at a local restaurant and earned the money to send her to see her Mom's gravesite. Two of them accompanied her there - and again the integrity and genuine concern that they showed to her was amazing.

I encourage anyone reading this thread to check out the show. It will make you feel good - and it's awesome to realize that there are four young men out there who aspire to such greatness; all the while, not looking at it as if they are doing anything great. Perhaps that's what makes it even more impressive.

The show sounds very interesting and I'll watch out for it. It reminds me of something I heard a speaker talk about. There was a young man and he heard some older man regret the things he never did in his life, or something along those lines, so he made a list of nearly 500 things he wanted to accomplish in his life at age 17. He is an older man now and had accomplished nearly 450 of them. It reminds me of the movie The Bucket List. That is a great way to live you life. I think it is best to do it while you can still enjoy it. That sounds like a program I would enjoy immensely.
