Brian and I happened upon this show by chance last night. We currently have free cable and, as a result, only have two English speaking channels: CNN and MTV.
While I am happy that those 15 hostages were freed from FARC in Colombia, I can only hear the story so many times. I refuse to believe nothing else is happening in this world. But it is a popular story on CNN at the moment.
So I turned on MTV. After zoning out to some reality dating shows, I noticed a show where five guys were hurting themselves had come on.
Since I had missed the beginning of the show I didn't know what it was called. But these guys appeared to be torturing themselves while a Master gave them advice. They had to complete a variety of tasks, including allowing themselves to be hit with bread loaves in a sling shot or being hit in the face with raw fish.
Another episode came on after the first one and I found out the show is called Fist of Zen. A show out of the UK according to IMDB.
It was pretty hilarious, especially since these guys have to complete all of the stunts in silence. Some people I knew in college definitely came to mind. I'm not going to names any names though.
Fun stuff. Thank goodness only two shows were on. I could have probably watched it all night.
And that's what happens when you only have two English television shows and nothing else to do.
