  • Really? Is that all true? I really can't believe it.

  • Hey can I get an email id to contact your show? I don't want to write what I want to write over here or on Facebook or Twitter.

  • $3.75 per capita is $1,227,000,000 dollars...

  • By definition, a degree from USC must be worth something (in fact, it must be worth quite a lot). If that were not the case, people would not have paid so much to try to get it through illegal means.

  • 9 months for a death certificate in LA county 🤯

  • Taxes are for businesses to pay the “easy to not be part of life, when you’re not a business

  • If you want to know the meaning of horrific death investigations, look up Japanese Unit 731.

  • lol USC got fleeced 😂😂😂

  • Only in america...

  • My dad died 7 months ago and I never realized how much we needed his death certificate. Anything that pertained to my dad, we had to whip out his death certificate. Utilities, mortgage, car insurance, cellphone, life insurance, pension, social security... the faster you get it, the sooner everything runs smoother for an easier grieving process. I couldnt imagine waiting 6 months for a death certificate. :(

  • I was almost a Samurai, almost a Pirate and almost a Ninja all at the same time! I could have settled a LOT of bets.

  • Glenn Close AND Tracy Morgan in the same episode! John Oliver is coming up in the world!

  • Listening to some that are SO far left and about to fall over. Its not different then those that ONLY listen to Fox. You watched for over 2 years about pres Trump and RUSSIA.. then oops ALL of that was lie. John here we can play past clips and find he out right LIED..and its OK! Now.. we have impeach... ok great.. if Trump did something GET HIM! But what crime?.. you know what trump is covering up.... ok covering up what? You know.. hes covering up pffft We listen to a DEM for two years had PROOF TRUMP AND RUSSIA. DEM's.. out right lied and.. its OK! Wait till Trump wins 2020.. IMPEACH PART 2. Am I the only one that LISTENED to what the DEMS were going to do if they won the house? They've done nothing and its OK! We hear a leading DEM say "he should be in prison".. great.. for what? Here you are making sure that COP JUDGE looks at YOU as innocent 1st. Yet Pres Trump.. we dont. We find Obama year ago said "Americas dream is to be like Trump"..strange how that never got talked about much haha

  • This makes me sick. I am from Kansas City, MO and I even almost went to the same college as that moron. I have had relatives and friends that have died there. I cannot believe they allow these conditions.

  • What 3rd world nation was this from?

  • 14:27 That lady has an ass for days.

  • 2020 technology shall regress to the technology if 2010, except for the ability to send interviews back in time to Last Week Tonight

  • Ducky!!! Wassup man.

  • Most county funds, (75%) go to government workers, worthless lazy government workers.

  • I am in the wrong line of work. I can make more in something completely unrelated to my job and get a good job doing something I am totally unqualified for. It's like a bankrupt casino owner thinking he can be president.

  • I need a judge to say who's to say if they did it or not🙄

  • OMG, this is scary.

  • "Look to your left, and look to your right, those people can be, and ARE, coroners in Arkansas." So a lamp and a bookbag, the world is a strange one.

    • They're as, if not more, eligible as real people.

  • My grandmother died 5 weeks ago and we are still waiting on the death certificate. America

  • Every time I watch this show, it makes me Crack up while simultaneously pissing me off at the stupidity of the human race... LOL

  • A Conservatives, by definition, loves their country. They want to preserve the political, economic and cultural systems that make it what it is. Leftists, by definition, hate their country. They hate the governmental, economic and cultural systems that make it what it is. Leftists are like someone saying they love a person whose appearance, habits and personality they dislike. It makes literally no sense. Oliver looks at a few abuses and excoriates an entire system- one which works well far more than the isolated exceptions he chose to appeal, well, to idiots like you incapable of research or logic. It's the one thing he knows how to do to ve funny. What Oliver knows, being of British birth, is that coroners go back a very long way. What he also knows, being an intelligent if profoundly dishonest man, is that entrenched systems usually are workable if only because they've been in place serving a necesary function a very long time. People simply wouldn't put up with incompetence here past viability

  • Today I learned that my cat on my left, and my cat on my right, are in fact coroners

  • Is there something in America that isn't fucked?

  • This is the real face of american CSI. No fancy ME labs and evidence labs. The various CSI series probably have more money to through around, than the real ME and evidence labs in the USA.

  • 8:25 more examples of terrorist police slop polluting the world ....

  • Man I liked forever. Too bad it got canned but atleast it had an ending

  • John, can you do an episode about new california free health care for the illegals? How do you spin this far left action?

  • The funding mentioned at the end of the video works out to roughly $375-$400 per *dead* person per year. Seems like a pretty reasonable amount of funding?

  • Anyone else hear hairdresser and think Sweeney

  • Anyone else hear hairdresser and think Sweeney

  • Well, O.J. Simpson investigation was botched, exactly because of this problem to be honest...

  • To be honest, I don't care, because I'm cynical, and I say if my body won't rise from the dead and kill the man, it means I don't care. Also I don't care because I don't live in USA. So good luck, USA'ians...

  • I did not expect Tracy Morgan to appear

  • Cliff Steele Robotman voice: THE FUCK?! *It's all in your head...all in your head...*

  • Oh hi.

  • 🤢🤢🤢

  • On my left is a bush and my right is a dog

  • You're nobody till some body kills you.

  • to be fair, 3.75 doesn't sound like a lot individually but 1 billion can give lawmakers sticker shock

  • How is the US still a thing?

  • The US is as fucked up as all those countries we think we're better than.

  • ha

  • I wonder how it compares with other developed countries.

  • America, why does your solution to "how to we find specialists" always seem to be "elect them"? Between judges, sheriffs, and coroners I'm really quite worried about you.

  • The USA, the 1st world developing country.

  • This is why professional criminals prefer to not leave bodies behind for death investigators and forensic autopsies

  • Coroners are needed when the state needs to cover up a death or two or a few. I mean some high ranking politicians have come from Arkansas who have shady death trails behind them.

  • 2 spoopy!!

  • sorry man, you should have used Michael C. Hall for that last bit... just sayin'

  • Just wait until someone you love dies and you want answers. The process will crush your soul.

  • Is there any - ANY job that the US government doesn't delegate to the private sector without quality-requirements?

  • Here is a fun thing that happend This past may i was accepting votes in the eu elections when someone showed up with both their and their parents voting card stating that their parent had died and this should not have received a voting card for this election Turned out this was a standing problem since they died in the us during early 2000 and there was still no official death certificates the electoral authority still cannot count the as dead and strike them from the voter roll Since the voting age is 18 people born in May of 2001 had the right to vote in this election people who died before some voters were even born still can be used to commit voter fraud in Europe because the us administration is so massively inefficient

  • " please write down whatever is killing you on a Post-It note." That's a law in lovecraftian literature.

  • Thank you for depressing me, John. I had buried my feelings about FOREVER long ago.

  • I just knew the moment you said they were outsourcing to private contractors that this was gonna get a whole lot worse. This shit is definitely not helping your ratio of solved to unsolved cases.

  • Dear Mr. Grant, two words...Mungo Jerry.

  • Once again how is that possible, coroners not medically qualified, goes with house inspectors in SC not certified? Why is the United States not united!!!!!!

  • Anyone ever added up the amount of money it would take to solve all the problems John brings up? Very curious to see the actual figure

  • Hey John Oliver. Why don't you talk about the homelessness in california. Oh! I forgot!. It's a democrat state.

    • The format of the show is such that they tackle one topic at a time. Maybe he will talk about your subject who’s to say? I mean “yes, he didnt talk about all the possible subjects in the world yet?”

  • I love the Marlon Bindi reference...I'm mentally clinging to it, while trying not to cry about all the other things he talked about, like the poor man burned in the car, and the medical examiner just like 🤷‍♂️

  • Forever was a good show, damn it!!!

  • America is not a civilised country 😡

  • tree fiddy and 25 cents

  • I thought I had a strong stomach for this stuff but even with all the jokes it took me 3 WEEKS to finish this episode. Jon Oliver some topics are too heavy for the argument that this is a comedy show to be valid lol

  • I miss the show Forever :’(

  • Squirt is the best!

  • Seeing so many U.S. citizens in the comments angrily responding to non US citizens when the latter point out how problematic things in US seem to be,is the very reason why this,and every other country in this world,is going to CONTINUE to be run by assholes,incompetents and greedy people,and progress will come slowly and at great cost. Instead of throwing the good,ol' ''well,your country sucks too,so...'' bullshit rant,maybe try and focus on becoming a BETTER country? Crazy idea,right? But I guess you'd be content on living in hell on earth,as long as everyone else lived the same way,too. Exactly how far removed are you from middle ages simpletons and peasants? Think about it.

  • “New Orleans coroner his name is frank minyard fuck with me wrong you’ll be waking up in his yard”- Run this town remix Lil Wayne.

  • So he's just one dangling light bulb... OVER HIS DEAD BODY

  • Robot examiners on the way! 🤖

  • Does the 'gift horse in the mouth' expression really apply in this case? 🤔 ru-tv.org/tv/%D0%B2%D0%B8%D0%B4%D0%B5%D0%BE-hnoMsftQPY8.html

  • Forever was a great show, too bad it was a badly copied plot.

  • The private, profit-oriented US prison industry is apparently leaving large profit margins on the sidelines. I need to set up a shell company in Delaware quickly and skim off big profits. See you, MAGAs ;)

  • HUGH MUNGO WHA?

  • This really makes me think about Sandra Bland.

  • Saying no word in an interview: ru-tv.org/tv/%D0%B2%D0%B8%D0%B4%D0%B5%D0%BE-iv07IUcOEB0.html

  • Happy to say my coroner is a primary care physician, so she is legit. Whew!

  • I love him really - greetings from Germany :-)

  • wow, this is actually SUCH a big deal, this is not okay. It’s disguisting and we need to take it very seriously. The fact that there was an uncovered and unrefrigerated body in the corner that there was no big deal about. These are people’s bodies for fuck sake! We have to have proper doctors, facilities, and autopsies.

  • Only tree fiddy!

  • I thought medical examiners were doctors ???

    • They are by definition, coroner's are elected and require no medical training

  • What the fuck America?!? So ugly Johny English is telling us that in the USA the murderer can be also the coroner of the deceased OR you can end up in Jeffrey Dahmer Jr.s hobby shed???

  • Dog ate his homework too

  • We are the prophets of prime time Our oracles are tv guides We need the right time and channel Cause we are dying to see who survives New trends in substance abuse? Who would have guessed that drug abusers are innovators seeking to exand an activity i had myself considered sufficiently effective How about the violations of the rules which describe which bodies may be resold A home buisness which buys bodies and sells the valuable parts to medical schools was fined for using bodies of people who died of some disease

  • That was most times I’ve ever heard John’s audience - or any audience - groan.

  • Forever was such a good show; I would do anything to get a Season 2

  • Awww Squirt is one of my favorite sodas! Though I wouldn't ever drink 40 ounces of it at once >

  • When the guy was asked about his dog eating organs he almost smiles. Dudes a psycho.

  • shawn parcells is a piece of shi*

  • Fun fact: the Los Angeles county coroner has a gift shop.

  • WTF is wrong with these horrible systems??? First World country MY ASS!

  • Disappointed John Oliver didn't mention the corrupt coroners in Florida falsely reporting Kratom as a cause of death despite the pharmacology not supporting this conclusion being possible from kratom alone.

  • why cant i watch that in austria?

  • Hugh mungo mistake

  • okay....this guy is definitely fucking dead bodies...
