The Almost Impossible Game Show

TX Time: 18h05
Genre: Game Show

Each episode of this outlandish series features six neon-clad contestants taking on simple, yet hilariously difficult games. To win, these brave contestants must complete four of the six games, without running out of lives.

If they fail a game, they've got to do it again... and again... and AGAIN. Contestants don't compete against each other, but against the game itself.

With challenges such as riding a tiny bike across a balance beam over a mud pit, putting on a pair of trousers while sprinting on a giant treadmill, and inflating a balloon to the point of popping using only the power of your buttocks, contestants will never know what's next.
