Product Description

The complete first season of the Channel 5 comedy survival series hosted by Nick Frost ('Spaced'). The show demonstrates how to survive worst case scenario situations including parachute failure, being struck by lightning and falling into piranha-infested waters; and delivers tips to cover all sorts of unlikely eventualities such as how to lasso a reindeer, survive being impaled, clear a minefield and capture a crocodile.

From Amazon.co.uk

Danger! 50,000 Volts! Is a British comedy television series where survival is not assured and Danger is always just around the next corner! Definitely not for the faintihearted! Nick Frost, star of Shaun of the Dead and the cult British comedy Spaced, fearlessly hosts this comedy survival series of seven thirty-minute episodes as he attempts to solve the following dangerous dilemmas: Alligator Attack!, Thugs With Baseball Bats!, High Speed Chases!, Minefields!, Fires!, Being Impaled!, Lightning Strikes!, Tidal Waves!, Hostage Situations! And MORE high-tension, high-risk situations that could strike out of nowhere!

Be prepared with this hilarious must have DVD
Finally one of my favourite TV shows has arrived on DVD.
'Danger 50,000 volts' was a programme I discovered while I was at university and have loved since. The show, for those of you who somehow missed this little comedy gem, is basically a survival guide to some of the perils and pitfalls that could strike our everyday lives....
Worried what to do if there is a nuclear strike, what happens if your sighted by a grisly (not cuddly) bear, or worst of all if your stuck in sand during the Paris - Dakar rally, then this show will explain the ins and outs of surviving this wonderful journey they call life.
The show is hosted by Nick 'no stranger to danger' Frost (star of spaced and Shaun of the dead). He is joined on this voyage of discovery by a host of experts who (although some may have been affected mentally by the wealth of the knowledge they hold) give us precious information that one day we may be thankful for knowing... and as a result Nick treats them with the dignity and respect they deserve.
The show manages to combine life saving information with laugh out loud entertainment - infotainment at its best.
During my student years I would sit back happy in the knowledge that while I was laughing my beer developed man boobs off, I was learning something useful. Now starting my office days it's great to have the show on DVD, dreaming that one day I may get to be involved in a hurricane, because it sounds like a laugh.
Added to the already big value pack of comedy is a 25 minute special featuring Dr. Russell Fell (some may recognise this nut ball) as the Australian zombie hunter, who shows us how to exterminate, with extreme prejudice, the walking dead. This, for the fan boys, is worth spending price alone.

I'll admit straight off that I'm a fan of Nick Frost and everything he's ever been in. This may make me biased, but I had high expectations of this DVD and it didn't disappoint.
Danger 50000 volts takes a lighthearted and humourous approach to survival and is both fascinating and factual. Each episode deals with four different scenarios (how to find water in the desert, how to identify a snake bite, how to search for landmines, etc.) and through demonstrations, interviews with slightly bemused guest experts and cartoons it teaches us how to survive them. We even get cartoon versions of anything too dangerous to film, which get progressively sillier as the series goes on.
The extras are excellent: A 30-minute Zombie survival episode, a hilarious commentary track and danger facts (which is also accessible via the programmes) make the DVD worth the price. I've also been told there's an Easter egg in there, but I haven't found it myself.
It's a class programme, infinitely watchable and without a doubt the best thing channel five has ever produced.

This is the DVD of the survival show hosted by Nick Frost. It's like a survival manual made into a television programme. Included on the DVD are all eight hilarious episodes of the Channel 5 show with commentary from Frost and the directors for all episodes. Each episode is made up of four 'how-to' segments such as escaping from bears, freeing a hostage and surviving a snake bite, with two animation 'how-to' segments on things that just could not be filmed easily such as tornadoes and falling lifts. Even though they were created on a tight budget (they were made independently) they are fantastically well put together, funny and actually full of real facts. The animation is also well created and adds its own humour to the programmes.
Also included on the DVD is a special featurette created for the DVD (50,000 Zombies - Frost was a main character in the recent 'Shaun of the Dead') and also facts that pop up mid-episode.
I'm now watching the DVD to fill the gap until the second series - Danger! Incoming Attack! - is released!

Nick Frost from Spaced, Shaun of the Dead, Rancid Aluminium finally got his own series. And what a series it is. The best show that Channel 5 ever put out...apart from Danger Incoming Attack which will hopefully be out on DVD also.
Full of laughs AND facts this show it a hoot. Nick is extreamly funny throughout while also managing to educate against the perils of nuclear war and...erm...killer bees.
A must have in any DVD collection.

Nick Frost, erstwhile genius of Spaced (in which he played weapons-mad Mike) and Shaun of the Dead (as scene-stealer Ed), is the perfect choice for this entertaining series, which details the survival tactics one might employ when faced with every crisis from charging elephant to flash floods and forest fires. Very much in the same vein as the amusing 'Worst Case Scenario' books, this is pretty basic stuff that gets by on the sheer charm and sarcastic gusto of its presenter as well as the laddish 'what if...' factor of some of the scenarios. Frost is as hilarious here as in anything else, introducing his guest experts, some of whom don't quite know what to make of him but soldier on regardless to provide us with essential survival information. From surviving sinking ships to doing handbrake turns to avoid kidnappers, this is genuinely pant-wetting stuff which fans of Spaced, Shaun and the delightful Frost will just lap up. If that's not enough, one of the bonus features stars Simon Pegg as daffy Australian zombie expert Dr. Russell Fell in a zombie special. It's clear Pegg and Frost had immense fun making this episode, and while they're cracking up at their own silly lines, so will you be. All very silly, snappy, well-designed and fun stuff that can quite happily sit on your shelf next to the more 'sophisticated' Nick Frost DVDs.
