1 Question, 4 Friends, 100 Things to Do MTV’s “The Buried Life”

What do you want to do before you die? This is a question that people can fixate on to strive to achieve their goals in life, a question that a lot of people can’t give only one answer to. It is also a question that people can answer, but they do not have the means or idea of how to get the one thing they want out of life. Thanks to four guys traveling across the country, they are making people’s dreams come true.

MTV’s new series “The Buried Life” premiered Monday, Jan 18, at 10 p.m. and it’s already stirred up a lot of hype with the adventures it has in store.

The four men on the show Ben Nemtin, Dave Lingwood, Duncan Penn and Jonnie Penn have their own bucket list with some of the most extravagant ideas that most would not attempt to try. During the series premiere the guys attempted number six on their list, which was to attend a party at the Playboy mansion. They went as far as buying a giant wooden cake that could hold two of the guys inside while they were dressed up as Oompa-Loompas. Did they make it inside? You’ll have to watch to find out.

The show is not only about helping these four friends cross off things on their list, but it’s also about helping people they meet along the way achieve what they want most. The four guys visited a school in the town nearby and were moved by the underprivileged students and what they hoped to get out of life. When the kids’ teacher said he wished they had one working computer to have in the classroom, the boys started thinking up a plan to buy these kids a new computer. They didn’t have much money, so that led to break dancing, bad singing, making people laugh and even selling someone the shirt off their back. Those are some of the things they did on a sidewalk to get spare change from passersbys.

This show is entertaining, funny and it will make you smile. It’s a breath of fresh air to see people helping others who aren’t as fortunate. MTV is finally giving its audience a show that’s worthwhile, as opposed to the regular drama filled, party going, baby mama and bad relationship spectacles they usually give us.

If you are wondering what else the guys are going to try to cross off their list, you can watch “The Buried Life” every Monday at 10 p.m. on MTV. They are people who just want to do some good for the world and there are many who will want to thank them for that.

So, what do you want to do before you die?
