This show was ruined by being made a 'reality show.'
24 June 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This could've been a really fantastic show, giving us Americans a taste of those crazy Japanese game shows. This show is actually that, only chewed up, spit out, stomped on the floor, then put on a plate for us to enjoy.

In the whole one hour time slot, we only see 1.5 games. The half of a game is actually 2 contestants competing to stay on the show. There's way too much talking, and not enough of the games.

I set my TiVo to record this, and fast forwarding through the talking and commercials, I watched the whole hour episode in less than 20 minutes. Needless to say, this show is off my 'record' list with three thumbs down. I wish networks would stop wasting our time with this trash and give us something fresh and new (ie. NOT A REALITY SHOW).

Skip this show at all cost. I give this show 1 finger out of 10. You can guess which finger that is.
