About Last Night: Wiped Out on a Japanese Game Show

July 2, 2008 by  

It’s summer, and I think you’ve realized by now that I’m not watching a ton of TV this time of year.  I’m still watching enough, but I’m not nearly as much as I would, say in the Fall. Last night I watched only two shows.  Ok, technically only one and a half because I didn’t finish watching the other.  What? I’m old.  I need sleep.

Check it out.

This is the kind of show that you either love or hate.  I personally love it up one side of the slippery stairs and down the other.  It’s just a blast to watch.  I find the commentary by John Anderson and John Henson laugh out loud funny, and the contestants spectacular to watch.  It’s almost morbid, because as I mentioned last week, these people have got to be getting hurt.  The way their faces slam into some of these obstacles…I can’t believe they are still able to stand none the less move on in the competition.

I can’t say that I even made it half way through this show last night.  It was a combination of me being exhausted and a little bit bored.  This show didn’t really grab me last week but I thought I would give it another shot this week.  And watching only half isn’t really giving it a shot so I saved it on the old DVR to watch later tonight (or more likely Thursday).  Maybe it gets better.

Did you watch either of these shows last night?  What did you think?  What else did YOU watch last night?  It’s time to share, kids!

    Oh my gosh, I LOVE Wipeout; Not quite as funny as the Japanese Xtreme version that once was shown on Spike (let’s face it; a bunch of drunk Japanese people trying to do basically the same thing, but with less of a point is HYSTERICALL), but still, I love to see the wipeouts. And the people….Loved the Cougar……

    However, I Survived a Japanese Game Show……Holy cow. I hate Reality TV, and this was one of the worst. I made it through 3 minutes before I commanded my roommate to SHUT IT THE HECK OFF RIGHT NOW OR I WILL HAVE TO MURDER SOMEONE. Not so good.

    I agree MXC on Spike is FAR FAR better than Wipeout. I’ll give it another try, but personnally I feel the commentary was HORRIBLE!! Check out MXC on Spike it’s on alot and you’ll know what I mean.

    I love Wipeout! Is it wrong that I laugh at the big balls every time?!? And I too love John Henson. But i keep wanting to call him Jim… Good Night and Big Balls.

    I wanted to like Japanese Game Show, really I did. But nothing…
