The One Way Out Season 1 DVDs take you inside the world of professional escape artist Jonathon Goodwin, as he grows his passion through greater and greater danger zones. Working with Terry Stroud, a mechanical engineer, the two construct traps never before attempted. The One Way Out DVDs of Season 1 have him fighting for his life against fire, scorpions, ostriches and more.
One Way Out Season 1 DVD is a compelling Discovery Channel series in which the host, professional escape artist Jonathan Goodwin, tests the limits of his own skills and endurance as he fights his way out of a set of increasingly complex, ridiculous, and dangerous traps over the course of each episode.
The traps, constructed with the help of mechanical engineer Terry Stroud, created from an array of ordinary objects, build to a final dramatic stunt in each episode.
In the One Way Out DVD, over the course of the series, Jonathan is bound with duct tape, locked in a filing cabinet, roped to a motorboat, stapled to a door, hung over a tub of tacks, driven off the end of a dock, tied to the tracks of a (small) train, encased in concrete, and buried alive"¦all while demonstrating important scientific principles. Simple physics may get him into these fixes, but for Jonathan, the trick is finding that One Way Out.
Shop for the One Way Out Season 1 DVDs, and follow as escape artist Jonathon Goodwin goes to new extremes to escape the dangerous contraptions created by Terry Stroud.
This One Way Out Video DVD edition includes all ten episodes, plus the extended-length pilot.
Bee Stung Brit: Escapologist Jonathan Goodwin tests his theory of minimal movement with a scorpion trapped inside his mouth and with his body covered in 200,000 agitated bees. He must endure excruciating pain as he attempts to set himself free.
Dizzy Limit: Escapologist Jonathan Goodwin tests his escaping ability while spinning. He rides down a hill in an out-of-control locked barrel, gets off a rapidly spinning chair, and takes a wild ride on the Water Wheel of Doom-all in the name of science.
Human Catapult: Escapologist Jonathan Goodwin takes the pain and tests his abilities while dealing with projectiles and the science behind them. He gets pummeled with tennis balls flying at 45mph, high-dives into kiddie pools, and is launched over 65 ft in the air.
Bird Brained: Escapologist Jonathan Goodwin gets served as dinner to some hungry turkeys, learns about the aggressive behaviors of ostriches, and then actually comes face-to-face with a pen filled with the giant dangerous birds.
Ice Trap: Jonathan experiences cold temperatures while testing his ability to hold his breath under water. He is restrained upside down with his head trapped in a container of cold water, tests himself in an icehouse, and gets trapped inside an ice tank.
Long Way Down: Jonathan Goodwin wages battle against the forces of gravity by becoming part of a life-sized domino rally, taking some crazy leaps off a high diving board, and making a daring escape while suspended 30 ft in the air.
Buried Alive: Escapologist Jonathan Goodwin faces the double jeopardy of limited oxygen and crushing weight against his body as he explores the science and danger of being buried alive. If he can free himself from his coffin, his battle has just begun"¦
BMX Bounce: Jonathan tests his escapes while withstanding the forces of impact. He is slammed with hanging objects, rides full speed on a BMX bike into an impact-measuring device, and attempts to make his final escape while Mikey slams into him at top speed on a BMX
Trial By Fire: Escapologist Jonathan Goodwin gets fired up as he explores the science of heat. His hands and ft are ignited, he licks a red-hot fireplace poker and is chained and handcuffed and must escape before he's burned at the stake.
Car On My Head: Jonathan tests his abilities while being crushed. He's sealed in a vacuum bag as its air is sucked out; he has massive amounts of weight placed upon his stomach and attempts a final escape with the weight of a car on his head.
