Entertaining mostly because contestants are willing to do anything to win, this reality TV experience is shot entirely on location in Japan, the home of shockingly bizarre game shows. Impossible tasks and stunts are carried out -- and usually over a giant pool of mud. Viewers are greeted with egregious displays of eagerness, humiliation and courage, a humorous and often hazardous gauntlet of physical acumen and self-determination.
