Last night I was chatting with my good friend Caroline on the telephone. As some of you may know she is leaving for Japan next week to go on a three week mission trip. (If you don't know about it, head over to her blog and read about it.) And, after chatting about how cool it is that she gets to go to Japan, our conversation digressed to a topic close to my heart: Japanese game shows. Yes, wipe that shocked look off your face. I did, indeed, say Japanese game shows. Sheesh, you would have thought I said fart or something.
So, anyway, I was telling Caroline about my two favorite Japanese game shows, Ninja Warrior and Unbeatable Banzuke. Unfortunately, she was unfamiliar with these two TV gems. So, this one's for you, girlfriend.
Because, seriously, what could be better than watching someone navigate an obstacle course on their hands. (Other than the riveting subtitled commentary). Well...
Maybe watching that. Because, once again, what could be more entertaining than watching people roll on logs and jump on little trampolines? Nothin', that's what. Well, except maybe getting to say "Ninja Warrior, hi-ya" and doing a little hand chop action when someone asks what you are watching.
Now, how about you? What's your favorite game show?
