Original Great Fantastic TV!
22 August 2008 | by See all my reviews

I loved "I survived a Japanese game show" it was a breath of fresh air to see this on my TV set every week. I really hope there is a season two as this show can only get better! Great job ABC!

Unlike other reality show "I survived a Japanese game show" had an intelligent irony which in my opinion upgraded the dull universe of reality TV. It was a comedy reality show and I loved westerners being fish out of water.

Its the kind of show one watches to forget about the boring dull day you just had and the game show rounds are real talk about moments. Its a cult classic on a massive scale...Brilliant stuff!
