ninjas ARE better than pirates
I am seriously hooked on this Japanese show they're playing on G4: Ninja Warrior. It's one of the few shows with people falling that I can watch without hiding my face, if only because they bounce off of foam and into water.

They've been playing it for nearly 48 hours, and I have stuff to do, but I can't look away...

i feel: enthralled enthralled

It's one of those, "Ooh, that looks like fun! [player wipes out] Or maybe not..."

I want cable now. ()

Oh well. Youtube, you betray me with your lack of complete Ninja Warrior episodes....

Look for it under its Japanese name, "Sasuke".

Aquel and I like to watch that one, too.

Spike TV used to run something like that. I don't know if it's the same program or not.

If I saw it on, I'd watch it. But I wouldn't go out of my way to find it or anything.

I don't think it is. The one on Spike was very silly; this one, while it has its moments of silliness (samba queen dancing through the course, anyone?) is actually quite a serious athletic competition.
