Thursday Movie Picks: TV Edition - Adapted From Non English TV Series

Wanderer is making it difficult for me this week. We're talking about shows that are adapted from Non-English series. I watch exactly one TV show (Attack on Titan) that didn't originate in the English language. Only one other thing came to mind right away, and the rest I had to dig for.

1) American Ninja Warrior

Ninja Warrior, or as it is known in Japan as Sasuke came to mind because I used to watch the Japanese version all the time on G4 (remember that channel?) It was great, The American remake has cool courses but makes us sit through every single competitor's back story which really brings the watchability down. 

2) Iron Chef America

Based off a Japanese cooking show, I watched one season of this, and it was only because I recognized a bunch of the competitors from Chopped. I liked it, but I'm still confused on what purpose Mark Dacascos serves? It's just awkward. 

3) Fear Factor

Apparently this was based off a Dutch show called Now or Neverland. I found this show incredibly boring for the most part so I was never a regular viewer.

  1. I think I saw one episode of Iron Chef but it was so long ago I don't remember. I've heard of the others but had no desire to see either.

    Extremely tough week! I'm sitting it out. I could only think of Homeland which certainly isn't what it used to be.

    1. Ninja Warrior (the Japanese version) is really fun. The rest I wouldn't rush out to see.

  4. I've never seen any of these shows and I just never had the interest for reality game shows. I used to get into Survivor but that eventually wore out its welcome.

  5. I see I'm not the only one who used three game shows, although we don't have any matches.
