More foreign TV?
I came across this station, G4 and love a few programs on it.
Ninja Warrior is a game show/obstacle course that is really fun to watch.
The commentary translations are hilarious.
Each season they invite 100 people to try to make it through the four sections that make up the course. It's like a hyped up military training course.
The course gets harder in each section - there has only been one person who has done it in all the show's history. The neatest part about the whole show are the contestants.
They run from teachers, firemen, cooks, Olympians, mechanics..you name it!
On one of the shows there was a transsexual that they touted as the "world's toughest transsexual". One competitor was a guy that competed in a Superman outfit.
It's great mindless TV with no point to it but to make you laugh and wonder if you could make it through some of the obstacles!
I just love watching Ninja Warrior! They had another one on last week but I can't remember the name. It was another physical strength thing. One challenge had them walking on their hands the whole time. I don't know how they got through the obstacles as far as they did. The Japanese have great senses of humor.
Some of those games that come out of Japan are pretty amazing. Have you ever seen Extreme Elimination Challenge? I think Spike carried it for awhile. The commentary is a hoot!
That's the Banzuke program.....I like that one too!
MXC has moved around to different timeslots.....it runs late out here!
The writing and double entendres are the greatest!
Hearing the line "most painful eliminations" makes me laugh every time.
"Most painful eliminations"?! They make meds for that! :p ;)
LOL, thank gosh for modern medicine..... :eek:
Makoto Nagano, the fisherman made it to the top of 4 Stage tonight.... :D
I hadn't had that much fun watching a TV show in a long, long time!!!!
And don't forget, the WOmen of NW starts on March 8!
