Death to Red Shirts…

I’m not a Star Trek fan at all, but I stumbled across this video and thought it was pretty funny.  What’s a “red shirt”, you ask?  It’s a character on the show, who wears a red shirt…and is sent down on missions with the main characters.  On these missions it is expected of these “red shirts” to die, in order to ensure the major characters safety.  I was first introduced to the concept of “red shirts” on the show Lost, where background characters drop like flies.  This video is a compilation of most, if not all, of the “red shirts” that die over the original series’ run.  Pretty ridiculous…

Three “red shirts” lose their lives in the span of 10 seconds on the show Lost…

[Spoilers if you haven’t watched Season 4 yet]
