i just noticed (From an advertisement on the onion) that you guys in the USA are getting Banzai! I've been watching it on British tv and it's great.<br><br><br><br>
It's basiclaly this satirisation of Japanese game shows, and it presents lots of funny situations that you can bet on, such as the one legged striker VS the one armed goalkeeper.<br><br><br><br>
Anyway, it's hitting the fox network on the 13th of July, and I encourage you to all watch it.

What Loki said <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/grin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":D"> Everyone in the US simply <i>mustmustmust</i> watch it - it's hilarious, and betting on it is fun too. My friend and I resorted to using pieces of chocolate, seeing as we were always skint.

Nope I think that's Takeshi's (Takeshi Kitano) Castle. Banzai features Bert Kwouk (aka Cato in the Pink Panther series) ,worthwhile watching either.

It just premiered tonight in the US and I watched it. I thought it was pretty funny. I like the old lady's in electronic wheelchairs game of chicken and I like the one where they asked a celebrity one question and only one question to see how long it would take them to get mad and leave, they did Simon Cowell tonight and it was great!

yea, I watched it too.. here at my ole work place. I think it would be fun to watch with my workmate, cause we can bet peanuts or something.<br><br><br><br>
Other than that... well.... Guess it is better than another episode of bachelor. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">

I was expecting a lot, and I was disappointed, especially since the first segment involved seeing how many helium balloons you could attach to a chicken-like bird before it would float away.<br><br><br><br>
A much funnier show in a similar vein is "Most Extreme Elimination Challenge" on TNN. That show is brilliant, bordering on genius. If nothing else, it's inspired.

i laughed so hard at the chicken thing. mainly because the chicken really didn't seem at all upset about it. there was a string attached to the harnass that i'm guessing someone on the ground was holding so the little guy wouldn't drift away. looked harmless enough

I must be getting blind. I didn't see the string. Still, I'd be pretty upset if someone was manhandling me and sending me aloft without my implicit consent, but there I go misanthropomorphizing again.

I must be the only one who didn't like it. There's another Asian game show on that's even funnier than Banzai... Most Extreme Elimination Challenge. It's on Saturday & Sunday nights on TNN.
