    Default why singapore dont have our own ninja warrior obsticle course?

    after watching the ninja warrior show on channel 5, it makes me wonder why singapore never have this kind of show.

    last time there was another show call takashi castle (also from japan), and the more barbaric american gladiator.

    really hope we will have one of such course in the near future, not that i will take part of cause.:

    SG did try several versions of watered down 'extreme' game shows. It was quite a sorry sight.

    that is because they are all not creative.

    remember last yr or the yr before, they have some kind of celebraties game show? so dam bloody boring.

    look at this ninja warrior show, it goes to proves that not all shows needs sex to sell.

    my sister say this type of show has no market value and is very expensive to produce. maybe that is the reason?

    could it be, everyone is afraid that after coming out with a ninja obsticle course, the army will upgrade theirs also?

    Not that there's no market, but one has to be created here.

    Look at the televised and cable sports media market in the US. You're looking at BILLIONS of media and consumer spend dollars.

    The sad part over there is that many of the sports are now owned by businesses with purely business interests as opposed to sports interest.

    If SG did a ninja warrior course, I think only the rangers, commandoes and SOF can compete. All the rest die liao.

    Eco-races and adventure races come close but are not televised

    You'd get at least a couple of hundred Singaporeans who would compete if a show were created

    all the equipment is there! Just needs a little bit of creativity to make the show interesting without spending mega bucks to make up new platforms and stages
