Summary of Season 1 (2003) - 2 discs
This English-dubbed Japanese reality program became the No. 1 rated show on the unapologetic Spike TV network targeted at young men. Its silly obstacle courses (Downhill Giant Rice Bowl Slalom) and humiliating challenges (Skipping Stones, where contestants have to step on the right stones to cross the pond or else fall in) will cause you to wince in vicarious pain. Comedic narrators Kenny Blankenship and Vic Romano add their often crass commentary.
