A game show where feuding contests resolve their disputes through bowling. Commentators Wally and "Chopper" give us the blow by blow (as it were) of each game. The winners receive semi-valuable prizes, like free car washes. Written by Mike Konczewski

dark and edgy, and still funny
14 May 2002 | by (Tampa, FL) – See all my reviews

A wholesome bowling competition with themes of sausage and polka music serves as a front for a very strange comedy show.

Wally Hotvedt is a man broken by failed relationships, and he finds creative and disgusting ways to spiral into depression.

Chopper is his announcing partner, who is well-loved, friendly, but often cruel when it comes to taking advantage of people.

The Queen Pins--unlike their showgirl counterparts on other game shows such as the famous Barker's Beauties on the Price is Right--take to taunting the contestants rather than encouraging them.

Ernie Jansen is the straight man of the group, leading the music section which includes a rotating cast of oddball acts such as Manplanet and the World's Most Dangerous Polka Band.

The skits are always humorously disturbing, and not just shocking for the sake of stirring up controversy (like many FOX programs). Of course, with a show that skews reality like this some people will just be confused.
