Im not sure if this is the correct place to put this, but.....

Flipping through the channels last Monday evening I ran across a show called "One Way Out" on the Discovery Channel. I did a little research and it appears that an escapologist named Jonathan Goodwin is the "star" and he will attempt to escape from various bizarre homemade contraptions every week. The part of the episode that I saw featured him being buried alive and then escaping. Has anyone else seen this show. What are your guys' thoughts? It airs every Monday at 9 pm Eastern on the Discovery Channel if youre interested in checking it out. Also, heres a link to the website:

I am looking to buy Pressley Guitar items in good condition. Send me a PM for details.

Saw him on Jimmy Kimmel, a glib and entertaining Englishman who looks like he's carving a nice niche for himself.

I think he and his team have reinvented escape artistry and infused it with authenticity by taking both the mystery and the bravado out of it. Cross between Mythbusters and MTV's Jackass. Genius. And I love that he doesn't feel the need to mention Houdini all the time.

Btw, Goodwin failed the big buried alive stunt in the episode mentioned by the OP. Which made it even more effective, IMO.

And unlike other escapologists this guy has an ingratiating sense of humor.

His approach isn't new. But it's good.
