Wipeout! If You Aren't Watching It Yet - Start Now!

I often talk on this blog about schadenfreude since it is the word that best describes my life.  There is nothing better than laughing at people as misfortune besets them.  Mrs. Stickan and I are always looking for people to laugh at, and let me tell you we never have to look very hard.

Last year, we discovered a little summer show on ABC called Wipeout.  If you haven't seen this show yet, I must insist that you watch it as soon as humanly possible.  The basic idea of the show is that the get people, mostly odd people, to run these obstacle courses with funny obstacles.

There is nothing funnier on television.  From about 30 minutes before the show starts, until it is over, Mrs. Stickman is just giddy.  She claps.  She laughs.  She cries.  It's better that Cats.

Here is a clip from this season of Wipeout.  This shows an obstacle called the HURTles.

If you enjoy mocking others, having a good laugh, and a fun time for the whole family, then Wipeout is for you.  We Tivo and watch it 3 or 4 times a week.  It just never gets old.  

The commentators make it that much better.  They are quite snide, sarcastic, and hilarious.  It's just all around quality television.  Watch it!
