101 Things Removed from the Human Body

This could possibly be the most disgusting thing on TV. It's not just about impalements.
Quoted from below, "There are a lot of orifices in the human body, and there are a lot of accidents that happen..."

I'm thinking coke bottles, vibrators, and plastic dinosaurs. *shudders*

New on Fox: When objects impale people

A special from '101 Things Removed' from body
Tuesday, July 29, 2003 Posted: 0702 GMT ( 3:02 PM HKT)

LOS ANGELES, California (Hollywood Reporter) -- Eric Schotz has a dream.

For more than a decade, the veteran producer of nonfiction and reality fare and the staff at his LMNO Prods. have combed the country for true-life stories of everyday people thrust into extraordinary situations and for inspirational tales of the human spirit beating the odds when adversity strikes.

After years of research, hundreds of interviews and a long quest for a sympathetic ear for the project at a network, Schotz is only days away from seeing his dream become a reality -- a reality special, in fact -- that premieres at 9 p.m. Thursday on Fox.

Schotz's labor of love carries an unusual disclaimer, even by Fox standards: "The people profiled all survived."

It might have been called "Extreme Impalement," but in reality, the hourlong special's title couldn't be more precise: "101 Things Removed from the Human Body" is not for the squeamish.

"There are a lot of orifices in the human body, and there are a lot of accidents that happen," Schotz says. "We've spent years compiling this show. ... Sometimes you'd just come across a picture that would just stop you, and you'd go, 'That's so wrong."'

The special blends shudder-inducing footage and still photos of accident scenes, X-rays, objects in formaldehyde jars, etc., with interviews with victims and the doctors and emergency medical techs who saved their lives.

In addition to the freak accidents, the special explores a whole subcategory of self-mutilation, ranging from the jewel thief who hides a diamond necklace too well to an array of kinky experiments gone awry.

"It's one thing when a 2-by-4 gets picked up in a hurricane and it hits you in the head," Schotz says. "When you start getting into handlebars and Ivory soap, it gets more complicated."

For sure, it took a twisted mind to devote years to researching a documentary on freak accidents and other mishaps. But LMNO's reputation in the medical community as a producer of numerous documentary series and specials for the Discovery Channel and TLC helped open doors to doctors and their case files.

"Some producers who do these kind of things are sort of shy about them, but not Eric," says Fox alternative and specials chief Mike Darnell. "Even I had trouble looking at some of this stuff. ... But Eric always brings enough passion as a producer that when he got excited about a 300-pound tumor, I got excited about a 300-pound tumor."

With "101 Things" finally poised to reach a national audience, Schotz will fulfill a longtime professional goal, but there's still one more thing he'd like to make happen for his "101 Things" baby: A coffee-table book.

"You'd have a picture of the person and a picture of the item on each page," Schotz explains. "The best part would be their excuse of how the item got there."

Speaking of strange things that happen to body parts, FX made a splash last week with the premiere of the truly cutting-edge drama "Nip/Tuck," about a pair of very different plastic surgeons in Miami. Series star Dylan Walsh admits it took some time to get used to filming the show's intense surgical scenes.

"The pilot was really hard to get through," Walsh says. "Now we are just on this wild ride. The arresting visuals are really the star of this piece, but for me, it's also an intense character study."

I wonder if they'll advertise it during baseball games.

Tim McCarver: Pop fly to shallow center, Williams is under it, makes the catch, and there's two away in the 7th. Don't miss 101 Things Removed from the Human Body, tomorrow night at 9 on FOX. True-life stories of everyday people thrust into extraordinary situations and for inspirational tales of the human spirit beating the odds when adversity strikes. In addition to the freak accidents, the special explores a whole subcategory of self-mutilation, ranging from the jewel thief who hides a diamond necklace too well to an array of kinky experiments gone awry.

Joe Buck: You're one sick motherfucker, Tim.

They would probably try to give it that fake air of danger all these shows have.

"The surgeon will now attempt to remove the cell phone from Mr. William's rectum. One small mistake, or one millibar of extra pressure-build-up in the toilet plunger would result in Mr. William's intestines to invert themselves, resulting in imminent death".

I hear that. I also hate it when, on shows like "America's Scariest Police Chases 32" or whatever they're up to, recycles the same aerial footage of the same drunk driver running the same red light, with fake helicopter rotors and commentary made to sound like it's live play by play from the cameraman "Okay, he's... he's coming up to the light, and he's... no, he's not stopping for the pedestrians! This guy is crazy! Okay, now he's heading the wrong way up the off-ramp..." when it was in fact added years later in a studio. I can't believe they think we fall for that.

Meh. You people can't get past these petty things to see how a documentary such as this could possibly be educational. I challenge you to watch it and to set aside your pet peeves for these details and just see if you can learn something from it. I'm definitely going to watch it.

This could be fascinating - such as the story of Phineas Gage and war vets who had small brain injuries from shrapnel. A lot of the early knowledge of how the brain worked came from incidents like these.



Oh, it's on FOX. nevermind.

So what do you suppose we'll learn.

* Playing 'William Tell' is fucking stupid.

* Gerbils should be left in their Habitrails.

* Guinness doesn't care how many coins you can swallow.

* The Darwin Awards will never lack for contenders.

* It's an EXIT, not an entrance!

* The human gene pool is very shallow.

* Most visits to the emergency room are precipitated with three words, "Hey, watch this!"
