Japan... Game show... Japan! Game show! It's like I died and went to... Japan with Game shows!

Ok, the folowing is my opinion. This... is... extremly... funny! I watched it and for at least 5 minutes (a friend was counting) I could barely breathe! Yes, one may consider the show racist. Racist towards Americans or Japnese? Both! Still, I love it. It's like a live TDI! If your kid can a. read subtitles and b. understand the challenges, than this would be the right show for them!
What other families should know
Too much swearing
Great role models

Norway is airing their I SURVIVED A JAPANESE GAMESHOW, which was taped in Tokyo during the fall of 2008. The first segment of the show can be seen on this link: The show is pretty funny, Rome Kanda is the host and is always zany and fantastic. The show, just like the one with American contestants, is meant for entertainment, and should be viewed as such. If you don't enjoy the show, TURN IT OFF! xo. mmickster.
