Banzuke is Unbeatable
Boy do I love myself some Japanese game shows. And if you're even inclined to watch one, then I would recommend the ultimate physical game show known as Unbeatable Banzuke on the channel G4.
Basically it pits normal contestants against obstacle courses that would make Sonic the Hedgehog blush. We're talking treadmills, crazy jumps, suspension bridges and water hazards.
Sometimes they do it on unicycles, sometime stilts, sometimes (actually most of the time) they fall flat on their face in a hilarious clip that will be replayed over and over.
It's entertainment, that's for sure. Just watch this...
How did I find such a wonderful show? Funny thing, while recovering from a hangover before the wedding of none other than Joel Willits from FishBear Sports, James from Collegiate Handyman and I spent most of the day watching this show in the Tri-Cities.
We watched something like six to ten episodes since G4 was running a marathon. We were rewarded in watching idiots like this...
And people like this...
Definitely worth an afternoon.
