Ninja Warrior is my new favorite tv show. Who wouldn't want to watch hundreds of hopeful men and women fail insane obstacle courses and fall into mud pits? Last night, an elementary school gym teacher who is referred to by his students as 'Professor Ninja Warrior' made it to the final obstacle, but finished two seconds late. Background footage of the contestants' training rituals show them pulling cars behind their backs and doing sit-ups off the edge of fishing boats.
In the history of the show, only 2 out of 2000 have actually completed the final course.
