Did You Know?


A BATSU GAME is a common element in Japanese comedy and variety shows. The name comes from batsu, meaning both "punishment" and "X", as in an incorrect answer. Generally, a batsu game takes place after some sort of competition or bet. The winner forces the loser to participate in the batsu game, which involves doing or experiencing something unpleasant.

Good entertainment!
26 March 2004 | by salmonj30See all my reviews

This is my favourite Japanese TV show, and to my delight it has not ended yet like so many shows seem to. The food is just absolutely astounding in the bistro smap section. All four members are such good cooks (sorry Nakai-kun) and it's utterly enjoyable to watch them prepare the food and make very funny comments on the way. I always look forward to the "oishii!" reaction by Shingo, which is always tailored to fit the guest and very hilarious. The short film clips and games are always great too, especially the parodies of various movies and fads. Though Smap's singing isn't the most harmonious and their dancing is almost never synchronized, I still love watching them perform. Their songs are quite different than other J-pop songs and are a delight to see done.
