Trivia

The series attracted controversy in it's native England in 2002, when Police intervened in the crew's attempt to film the funeral procession for the Queen Mother with a speed gun for a bet on how slow the procession would go along. In addition, the version of the show on America's Fox Network was pulled after only six episodes after complaints from Asian Rights groups. See more »

Grows on you
7 August 2002 | by purakekSee all my reviews

At first, it looked and sounded annoying, with English spoken in thick Japanese (and I believe some Chinese too) accents and some silly calisthenics by a bald, psychotic co-host. Later, despite the nudity, proclivity towards gambling and simpleminded fun, you get used to it. I did! Just hope this program is shown in Japan and Singapore. The contest portions are really stupid, but then so is gambling. Fred Silverman shouldn't see this or he'll re-think the Pink Lady and Jeff concept!
