Is It Bad That I Love Wipeout?

I am not a fan of violent entertainment, but I can’t help but think that Wipeout is hilarious.  Extraordinarily laugh-out-loud funny.  Those poor contestants attempting stunts that many fit athletes could not complete are just hysterical.  Today MSN posted a Wipeout “greatest hits” video that is worth watching – but I can think of moments from the show that were even funnier.  The sarcastic commentary and slow-motion replays are what make it great.

Its predecessor is the Japanese remix called MXC, which you can still see in syndication sometimes.  Since that country’s liability laws are clearly less stringent, those folks get clobbered with everything in reach plus the kitchen sink, and they have much less padding.
