TV in Japan gets a blog


It’s no secret that Japan’s television shows are….unique. I got my first taste of the cathode ray madness in 2001, when I was staying at Cam‘s place in Toyama and I got to see such cultural touchstones as “Miniskirt Police” and Boingo.” It’s just gotten weirder since, and TV in Japan is there to chronicle it.

By the way, not every show on Japanese TV is wacky game show malarkey. They do have dramas and other such standard fare, including the otaku-themed “Densha Otoko,” which is quite decent.
