I am so happy to see Ninja Warrior back on TV. Men love the action; women love the hulks. It really amazes me how those Japanese managed to think of such difficult obstacles. Yet there is no lack of contestants lining up to face the challenge. Some of them failed and return to retry the following season. They showed their strength and determination in the show, though I wonder if a handful was there for the 15 seconds TV appearance. Sometimes I cannot stop wondering how far our elite soldiers can go in that obstacle course.
