Gramma Peny is visiting for a few months, so we got cable for her. Last Saturday, we were watching Ninja Warrior (SASUKE in Japan). Pretty good show. Alas, it’s on the totally brainless G4 channel. Anyway, the premise of the show is that various people try to get through an obstacle course in a time limit. The first contestants are comedians, old men, and others who can’t even make it past the first part of the first stage. Later, they get to the professional gymnasts and others who really have a chance. The course is downright tough. There are portions where you must climb across a span where you can only grab on with your fingers. The announcers make super-melodramatic summations that come across as pretty funny sometimes. Not as funny as Takeshi’s Castle, but better drama.
