Return of the Tin Man…

Posted by márc 19 2010

Well, I can’t say I had to be smart… but at I did have to be skinny. Hole in the Wall is a new game show for Hungary’s RTL Klub, that depends on physical comedy rather than stumping contestants with trivia questions or playing any sort of actual game…

Caught in the Middle…

As contestants contort their bodies to fit through cut-out shapes in an advancing Styrofoam wall, it’s almost more fun to see them fail than to succeed. Hole in the Wall takes its cue from silly and sometimes outrageous Japanese game shows. The American version of this human Tetris game is over stylized and over produced, and as Carrie Grosvenor’s telly critics says: it actually is funny.

Contestants wear silver spandex suits accented with their team colors, while the kinda bitchy hosts, Balázs and Jani tells them that “It’s time (pause) to face (pause) the hole!” To be honest I don’t think I ever enjoyed so much falling into the pool, since we had a cute, blonde Baywatch kinda lifeguard, who always pulled me out of trouble…

What do ya all think? Did I look like the Tin Man… or more like Posh Spice?
