Outstanding!!!!!!!
4 September 2002 | by (Ontario, Canada) – See all my reviews

This is one of the most disturbing and unusual shows that I've ever seen! The challenges make those of Dog Eat Dog and Fear Factor look like child's play. Where else can you see things like Squirrel Fishing, Old Lady Wheelchair Chicken Challenges and Nectar of the Goths drinking games? This is a weird, yet mind-numbingly interesting program with Kato from the Pink Panther films as a co-host and a quintet of strange presenters(Mr. Cheeky-Chappy, The Bald Guy, Mr. Shake-Hands Man, Mr. Shake-Hands Man II and Lady One-Question) making both regular people and celebrities look foolish! All in all, a great series for those with have a warped sense of humor!
