Spartacus more Killer than Vampire Diaries, Game of Thrones – ALL
Who would’ve guessed Spartacus Vengeance would take the crown of being the TV series with the most human-related deaths, beating out such popular, death-filled shows like The Vampire Diaries and Game of Thrones. Actually, did you even know they kept track of the death tolls of various TV shows? I certainly didn’t, but I’ve got to say, I love the idea. It absolutely appeals to the morbid side of my personality, To break it down mathematically and charting it just tickles me in the right way, I don’t care who knows it.
The research done over at Funeralwise.com is extensive and impressive, with 40 different TV shows being selected for this study of death, with Spartacus: Vengeance coming in with an average of 25 deaths per episode, and Game of Thrones coming in second with 14 deaths per episode. That’s a staggering amount of killing for either series. If they kept even close to those averages throughout their seasons, then we’re looking at hundreds of people killed in total between them. All in all, CBS came out on tops as the deadliest network, with 11 of its shows selected for the study. On the opposite side of the spectrum, Revenge, Leverage, and White Collar had no deaths whatsoever, so good for them, I guess.
The study also took into account non-human deaths, which gave other shows like The Vampire Diaries and The Walking Dead a serious boost with 18 and 16 deaths per episode respectively. Collectively, the 40 shows amounted to an average of 132 dead bodies in a single week of television, with the number increasing to 171 when taking non-human deaths into account. So, what has this study taught us? Quite simply, we are exposed to a lot of death on television. Maybe now they’ll do a similar study, but this time it’ll be about sex. I suspect it will have similarly high numbers, particularly from the Showtime and HBO series.
