Crazy Japanese Gameshows:
The node is dedicated to the whacky world of japanese gameshows, full of humiliations, unhuman tasks and cruel hosts. With viewers in the millions, and little chance to ever see those gems on western TV screens, these shows are a constant reminder that the Japanese are truly mad.
The writeup will always be work in progress, as there still remain many shows unmentioned or unnoded. If you find or write another node, let me know, so I can add the hard link.
