"Time of Death" Showtime Six-Part Documentary

Showtime’s ‘Time of Death’: An important and honest look at what death is really like

This seems really interesting. I was wondering who was planning on watching it. Also, would love to hear others thoughts on this.

Many of us here are getting a bit older and starting to think about this more and more. Personally, I just dealt with the deaths of my FIL and MIL all in the last 10 months. There have been discussions about how my wife's family has dealt with the deaths. (Probably in not the healthiest of fashion, but that's another story.

Anyway, would love to have others thoughts and discussions on this as it seems from the review it is well done.

From the review:

Quote:
I rarely insist that anybody watch anything on TV, but I strongly recommend that you watch as much as you can of “Time of Death,” Showtime’s unflinchingly honest docu-series (premiering Friday night) about what it’s like to die — and what it’s like for our loved ones to watch us go.

I get that it’s not going to be a TV show for all. It’s hard stuff. If you and your loved ones are planning to live forever then, by all means, skip it. If, on the other hand, you are an adult with a firm grip on reality (and perhaps faith), you will likely find yourself transfixed by the gentle and elegant ways that “Time of Death” takes us into the final weeks of eight women and men, ages 19 to 78, each losing a fight against a terminal illness.

I will confess that I hadn't heard about this at all. But I agree, it can be an interesting subject (for some of us), and I will definitely set an SP.

My wife lost her mom, dad and step-dad all within the last five years. Both my parents are alive (in their 80s), but their mortality becomes more obvious with each passing year. So I'll give this show a try.

Thanks for the post.
