Nostalgia Filter: TV Champion

I don’t know whether you followed the series or not, TV Champion is a Japanese series of contest with various subjects for each week aired from 1992 until 1993, continued with its second series from 1993-2006, and 2006-2008. Aired not only in Japan, for example in Thailand and in Indonesia, it was a part of my  Japanese series childhood memories alongside Ninja Warrior (Sasuke) and Takeshi’s Castle (I was not into Viking because I was quite older already back when it’s aired and we didn’t have Unbeatable Banzuke, there were still quite other TV shows though) .  When I said various subjects, I mean various subjects, from the obvious origami, juggling, until things like perfect parking, Morning Musume (girl group) lover , and competitive eating.

Banking analyst Conor Woodman wonders about this too and set a challenge to go around the world in 6 months try to do “traditional” trades, with camera following his movements to be aired as documentary.

20 videos, 4 episodes, 5 10 minute-parts-per video. Hmm, just sacrifice 3.5 hours from your weekend
