Love It or Leave It: Hole in the Wall

When Fox's Hole in the Wall was first announced, I did my fair share of making fun of it. People dressed in spandex attempting to fit through little spaces? We're really going to use up valuable television space on that?

And then, well, the first promo aired. And I laughed really hard. It's not that I suddenly thought that it was going to be a quality show, but it would be fun to watch once. Or if I was sick on the couch. Or if I just needed something in the background when I was getting ready to do stuff . . .

Hole in the Wall officially premieres tonight, though two special preview episodes have already aired. Have you seen the previews? If you have, is it worth it? If not, check out the clip below and tell me if you think this is a show to love or leave.

I saw the Japanese version and it's flipping hilarious. I can watch ever ep in Youtube and not get old. But eventually, I can see how this can be old.

the Japanese do it best. Why are the Americans always trying to copy stuff from others? Many times they just make it worse.

The boyfriend and I are watching it right now...he's loving it. I'm slightly amused, but definitely not as much as he is. Although, I find it ridiculous that most of the time the hole is no where in even close to being big enough for anyone to make through, but I guess that's why it's amusing.

I like the concept, but the announcer and all the filler is just stupid. Also, in the "special preview" episode, they recapped the ENTIRE episode to date, including showing every single wall challenge, just before the final challenge. It was ridiculous. It's so clear that it's 10% content and 90% filler. Wipeout kicks its ass. It's too bad, because the show could have been awesome.

I watched it on and off tonight, I kind of liked it but its not something I will religiously watch, just during the occasional commercial break most likely

I accidentally turned this on the other night and really thought MadTV was on making fun of it or something. But no such luck. Just no.

oh i don't know if i'll waste my time watching it but i guess it depends on what else there is for me to tune into. i think that it's an interesting concept and from a summer of wipeout and other nonsense shows - it fits right in.

If you're looking for a show that is just crazy, stupid, and entertaining, see WIPEOUT instead. This show is boring and was only funny for the first few minutes. Plus, Brooke Burns is insufferable.

I'd check it out. I find the Japanese version funny. I don't think this kind of game translates well for us chubby Americans though.

I thought it was pretty entertaining. I was surprised how few commercials played throughout the show as well. Usually stuff like that is inundated with advertisements.

Only funny when in Japanese.

I've seen the preview episodes and I think they're pretty funny! I'd probably have slated it for a summer filler show but we'll see how the season plays out.

:rotfl: this show is hilarous!!! Buzz, what time does it come on tonight? I think me and my boy will enjoy this! :)

I watched part of one of the preview episodes. It was hilarious! While I'd hate to waste precious Tivo space, I'd probably rather record it so I can skip the parts that drag. (Like when they talk...) BTW, love the blind wall. Some guy (or girl) standing there as the wall rushes forward and they depend on their teammates to tell them what position to be in. (In the preview the teammate said "uhhhhh, move to the left a little. yeah, right there and..." BANG there was the wall and into the pool he goes!)

There's a hilarious Japanese show just like this called Human Tetris. I think that's where Fox got the idea.
