Very Entertaining!
13 July 2009 | by See all my reviews

When I first saw advertisements for the first season of I Survived a Japanese Game Show, I thought it looked really stupid. But eventually, it started to grow on me. So I tuned in to the series premiere. My expectations were blown out of the water. This series is a very clever idea. It was the perfect mix of laughter-inducing stunts and reality TV drama. I hope ABC puts this out on DVD sooner or later.

I like the second season, too. Although it isn't as good as the first season. They got rid of Tony Sano, which is too bad, because I thought he was a good host. They also put three games in each episode instead of two, so there's less time for reality TV drama. It has been better, but I still like it.
