    More foreign TV?

    I came across this station, G4 and love a few programs on it.

    http://www.g4tv.com/ninjawarrior/index.html

    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.

    I did the right thing by setting you free
    But the pain is very deep.
    If only I could turn back time, forever, you I'd keep.
    I miss you


    I hear you whimper in your sleep
    I gently pet you and say, no bad dreams
    It will be alright, to my dog as dark as night.

    Fur as dark as the night.
    Join me on this flight.
    Paws of love that follow me.
    In my heart you'll forever be.

    How I wish I could hold you near.
    Turn back time to make it so.
    Hug you close and never let go.

    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!

    DDM,

    That's the Banzuke program.....I like that one too!

    STE,

    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.
