Trivia

The show originally began airing in Japan in late 1997 under the name "Sasuke," but was not broadcast in the United States until nine and a half years later, starting in February 2007. It consists of four stages which the competitors must complete. Each special is broadcast (in Japan) as a three hour event, broadcast in half hour segments. In the United States, the specials are heavily edited down, creating three or four 30 minute episodes for each season's competition. See more »

Goofs

Various mistranslations: The hometown of competitor Bunpei Shiratori, Inba, is sometimes called "Imba"; The Free Climbing obstacle is called the "Mountain Climb"; The Climbing Bars obstacle is called the "Bridge of Destiny"; The Prism See-Saw obstacle is called the "Prism Tilt"; The Cross Bridge obstacle is called the "Bridge of Blades"; The Lamp Grasp obstacle is called the "Globe Grasp"; The Pole Jump obstacle is called the "Super Vault"; The Pole Bridge obstacle is called the "Pillar Path"; The first Chain Reaction obstacle is called the "Chain Swing", however this may be intentional to avoid confusion with an unrelated obstacle used later also called the Chain Reaction; Competitor Koji Yamada is called "Yasushi Yamada".

Big Nagano fan
12 February 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This really is a great show. I was surfing and loved the announcer shouting at the top of his lungs. Then, I became a fan of the All Stars. Only in professional sports do you see athletes of this caliber. These are really just home boys that found a challenge and became heroes in their country. It has inspired me to train harder, as I now see what true strength is watching the best get to the latter stages. I truly hope that it is not duplicated here in America. The G4 edited version is perfect as it is. Spend maybe 5 to 10 seconds doing a profile on a few and just let each contestant run the course. No need for a 10 minute segment on how a garbage man has such a hard life and still finds time to train for the game. Oh, it would make me sick thinking about what Hollywood would do trying to duplicate the show. OK, gotta go. I have to train on the warped wall in my back yard;-)
