Wipeout!

8/5/2008:

I don’t get a chance to watch too much TV these days, but Wipeout on ABC is now on my DVR list! Does anyone watch this? It’s entertaining, competitive, and has some really sarcastic commentary along with funny replays of the mishaps and falls.

Check it out tonight at 8pm! Perfect entertainment!

About Wipeout

wipeout-abc-logo.jpgHuman cannonballs! Human pinballs! Crashes, smashes and mud splashes! Twenty-four thrill-seekers will compete in the world’s largest extreme obstacle course designed to provide the most spills, face plants and wipeouts ever seen on television, in Wipeout, a painfully funny new reality series.

Each week 24 daring new contestants of all ages, shapes and sizes will go head to head through four rounds of grueling and physically demanding but wildly hilarious obstacle courses to win the title of Wipeout Champion and the grand prize of $50,000. The contestants and the courses change every week, with over-the-top obstacles including “Dizzy Dummy” the “Dirty Balls” and “The Dreadmill” – which will have contestants jumping hurdles on a 40-foot long treadmill at warp speed. In the end, only one contestant will win, while everyone else will Wipeout!

“Wipeout” is hosted by John Henson (E! Entertainment’s “Talk Soup”) and John Anderson (ESPN’s SportsCenter). Jill Wagner is co-host. Executive producer is Matt Kunitz (Fear Factor). Co-executive producers are Scott Larsen and Shye Sutherland.

I’ve been considered something of an anti-physical humor snob since I was about 13. And yet when I see those people get smacked off those huge rubber balls I just laugh and laugh.

This show is a great way to end a bad day. Its hilarious and mindless. I love watching these idiots bounce off of everything but the commentary is what really makes the show.

I know this is a clone of the Japanese shows, and I have yet to watch it, but after watching the preview I gotta set my Tivo to record it.

[quote comment=”97571″]If you like MXC and this show – Ninja Warrior and the Unbeatable Banzuke (both on G4) are extremely fun to watch. They consist of decent athletes, not idiots like on MXC, trying to get through an impossible course.[/quote]

ninja warrior is one of my favorite shows these days!

Let’s see. Should I watch Wipeout, or go to the BOE meeting?

I’ll set the DVR just in case. 😉
