How would you do?

I rarely watch American game shows or Reality TV, but give me a good Japanese game show or any program on BBC America (except Dancing with the Stars!) and I'll watch it.

Some of the Japanese game shows just crack me up with their wackiness, and yet, they can be so brutal to the contestants at the same time! Do any of you watch MXC (Most Extreme Elimination Challenge) on Spike? It's a comedy redubbing of "Takeshi's Castle," which aired in Japan back in the 80s. It's hilarious, but some of those contestants really get knocked around. Half the time, I'm cringing when I watch them on the rolling logs and I wonder how the heck they manage to get up with all their teeth intact. Or manage to get up at all! I guess I'm a wimp. It just looks like those challenges would put me in the hospital for a month. LOL

And yet, I watch...What does that say about me?

Anyway, the clip below is NOT brutal, but it cracked me up. So, I thought I'd share. The big guy and the guy with glasses...Way too funny.

This is a clip from a show called "Human Tetris."
