You might enjoy this if you enjoy garbage television and have never seen a Japanese game show.
3 July 2008 | by (Luoyang, China) – See all my reviews

I think the title "I Survived an Idiotic Americanized Version of a Japanese Game Show" might be more appropriate. I had high hopes for this show, having recently been enjoying several episodes of one of my favorite game shows of all time, Most Extreme Challenge. Sadly, this is stupid, stupid American television of the lowest order. "Survived" is really a sad joke, because the only thing that is survived is the voting off of your fellow contestants, since the show is just another who-will-get-voted-off-next crapfest just like the hundreds that have been secreting from your TV set for the last ten years or so. The actual stunts and physical challenges, the nonstop fun of a real Japanese game show like MXC, make up maybe 15% of the show, the rest of it being ridiculous bickering among the contestants, who are composed of the most ludicrous American caricatures you can imagine. Britney Spears would fit right in with this cast. It would be nice if the networks didn't insist on broadcasting meaningless and thoughtless sludge and passing it off as American culture. No stars. Avoid.
