the city mayor wants the show cancelled [url=http://www.tmz.com/2013/04/01/buckwild-shain-gandee-death-mayor-cancel-the-show/]'Buckwild' City Mayor -- It's Time to Cancel the Show | TMZ.com[/url]
I'm honestly upset about this... not only because I'm probably the only person on this forum that actually liked the show, but I just always find it sad when a young person his age dies.
MTV wont cancel the show, I can just imagine the ratings for the episode he dies in.
[QUOTE=wutzrenzi;339665]I don't see more than one or two seasons left from them, unless they revamp the cast.[/QUOTE] Yeah I agree. The show is funny to watch and does well ratings-wise but it was obvious from the start that it was gonna have any longevity. Also sad to hear about Shain's passing. If they do continue the show it won't be the same without him.
Carbon monoxide killed him. Best way to go.
[QUOTE=ILoveRW;339702]MTV wont cancel the show, I can just imagine the ratings for the episode he dies in.[/QUOTE]They won't use his death on the show. They probably won't even go forward with a second season. Just watch.
[QUOTE=Nostalgic;339608]Not at all. I never really cared for him and felt that he was shady. Still Though I don't wish death on anyone.[/QUOTE] It's not sad at all that he died? How heartless and mean can you be? He has a family and friends that are all mourning his death. Its not even like he died doing drugs or something stupid. Feel how you want, but why come on here and post such garbage. Atleast he wasn't a jerk who says absurd things for attention. How disgusting.
Hardly did I say it wasn't sad. And I'm not saying things for attention so I don't know where you are getting that idea from.

[QUOTE=Kajun;340127]Its not even like he died doing drugs or something stupid.[/QUOTE] Actually I think you will find adrenaline is a drug, and he clearly went a little too far trying to seek that rush. I would put his death on a similar level to a druggie ODing. And thats not to say it isn't sad.

[QUOTE=Kajun;340147]That is the most ridiculous thing I've ever read in my entire life.[/QUOTE] I second this.
What part is ridiculous? Your calling scientific truth, ridiculous.
No, adrenaline isn't a drug. Plus he's a redneck doing typical redneck stuff. They didn't wreck and try and jump a cliff. They were mudding, a normal activity. They didn't purposely get carbon monoxide in their air vents to see how long they could last. Comparing them to a drug overduse is a ridiculous notion. Completely ridiculous and irresponsible to imply such foolishness.

MTV better hope Teen Mom 3 is a hit because Awkward and Teen Mom 2 are going down the pan and they don't have anything left after that.

Other shows have been in the same boat but still aired. With this there wasn't much footage anyway so praise God.
That article has been updated. MTV are having a marathon this weekend and are working on a tribute episode. I knew MTV wouldn't be able to resist milking his death for ratings.

And thats not to say it isn't sad.[/QUOTE] Similar to a druggie ODing????? That is absolutely ridiculous. Going mudding is like driving around on dirt bikes or go carts and is NOTHING comparable to a druggie ODing. Would you say a person crashing on a bike or scooter and dying is comparable to a druggie ODing??? Wow. I can't even believe some of the things people say at times.
[QUOTE=CHill;340711]Would you say a person crashing on a bike or scooter and dying is comparable to a druggie ODing??? [/QUOTE] If they died going for a super risky jump then yes.
[QUOTE=ILoveRW;340716]If they died going for a super risky jump then yes.[/QUOTE]What was risky about what they were doing? Cause they drove their car through mud? Do you hear yourself? This was a tragic, freak accident and you are acting like he overdosed on drugs or crashed because they were drunk or something awful like that. Very judgemental and I guarantee if it was one of your friends or family you wouldn't be so harsh and ridiculous about this. Had this been due to alcohol or something like that I would see your stance but do you know how many people drive their cars through mud a day? This could happen to anyone.
[QUOTE=ILoveRW;340716]If they died going for a super risky jump then yes.[/QUOTE]Furthermore, using this logic, you must feel that people such as race car drivers who die while racing cars are the same as a drug addict overdosing? Or if people jump out of a plane and their parachute does not open? Cause those are risky things that people can die while doing......and you look at them the same way as someone who OD'd???? Completely ridiculous.
Look I'm not going to argue about this. I just believe that he partook in something which was risky and he lost out, its very sad. I think maybe you guys just have bad connotations associated with ODing.

Completely ridiculous.[/QUOTE] It's ignorance. I wouldn't waste anymore time even acknowledging it. I think it is dumb the show was canceled. If the cast and Shain's family are on board I think they should continue filming. Suddenly REALity tv get real and they cancel the show. I find it stupid and weak of MTV.
I kind of understand what ILoveRW is saying. While I do not agree 100% with his wording. I think he/she is kinda getting at the fact that for some people, adrenaline can be somewhat of an addiction (hence the term, "adrenaline junkie.") this may have been the case for Shain, he possibly loved thrills he got while mudding. Now, the part about his death being the same as a drug overdose is where I start to get lost. He did not overdose on adrenaline. He made a poor decision to go out mudding while intoxicated (if I understand properly.) that was just a poor poor choice that he made, and unfortunately, it had fatal consequences. It is tragic and awful, but I feel like if Shains family was on board, MTV could have really used the situation to enlighten the minds of young people who may make the same mistake in the future. It was a poor decision on MTv's part, that very well could, indirectly, have fatal consequences for casual viewers of the show, who have only seen how fun it is to be "Buckwild," so to speak. If all the casual viewer has seen is the first season, and knows nothing of the accident, then where does that leave them?
A Buckwild special, From the Mud to Manhattan, will air as the lead in to the Movie Awards on Sunday. Shameless, MTV. Shameless.

I would not surprise me that VIACOM's attorneys and underwriters were the drivers in the cancellation of Buckwild and not the execs at MTV.

I think maybe you guys just have bad connotations associated with ODing.[/QUOTE]No one is arguing with you, you just made a very harsh and judgemental statement and I was hoping you could perhaps explain and back up what you were saying. I honestly wanted to hear you explain how people driving their car too deep into mud and having the exhaust pipe covered is in any way like a drug addict taking too much of something and dying. I just wanted to hear your explanation and perhaps try to understand where your harsh comments were coming from. That clearly is not a happening so I'm just going to drop it now. :)
