A True Reality Show: Supreme Skills! The Seemingly Trivial Can Be Most Entertaining

In the opinion of many, television entertainment continues to spiral downward. Perhaps the lowest of the low is the "reality show".

Most reality shows having nothing to do with reality, but the Japanese show Supreme Skills! does not fit that stereotype. It is actually real, and it is phenomenally entertaining. The most curious part is episodes generally involve a competition between two teams to accomplish what we might feel is the trivial!

Some topics concern the ultimate...

  1. Paper airplane
  2. Rope
  3. Shoe
  4. Safety hat
  5. Bicycle
  6. Suction cups
  7. Swimfin
  8. Walnut shelling tool

Supreme Skills! is the most captivating show I've seen in a long time. See if you do not agree... Episodes can be found on YouTube. Here are Rope Part 1 and Rope Part 2 .

I don't have a TV, so can't see these, except on youtube. These would be interesting, because while the tasks may be trivial, they would be great ways to show teamwork and leadership.

I had a look at wire rope 1. That is very interesting. I must let one of my brothers see that. He is a materials engineer.

The tug of war was pretty interesting stuff as well, because the contestants modified their ropes for the event.

You're right about 'reality shows'. Probably the lowest form of 'entertainment' in the history of entertainment and yet they are incredibly popular. Says more about people than we really want to know!

The extra funny thing about Supreme Skills! episodes is those with the most boring titles are the most interesting. For instance, the one about the difference between brazing and the use of screws. A snoozer, right? No SIR!
