A lot of foreigners that come to Japan say that Japanese TV is just insane and that there’s nothing worth watching. Superficially, it’s true, things look quite inane, but there is beautiful madness in there, and I got some more examples tonight. It’s no use really describing what I saw, as I don’t think anyone would get it (let’s just say that it included one of the priceless appearances by one of my favorite comedians that everyone in Japan hates, Egashira 2:50, on the show PuSma). I laughed myself silly, even though I wasn’t understanding everything that was being said (I’m getting good though, and I’m surprising myself by how much I’m understanding a lot these days).
Japanese TV. Beautiful madness. Yeah.
