Everyone should periodically give into their inner 8-year-old boy, and this show delivers with some mighty big balls (and if you're lucky, zombies!). There's nothing better to unwind from your day than the gleefully puntastic dialogue narrating as the colorful contestants (such as "The Pink-quistador") run headlong into an oversized, cartoonish obstacle course. But much like love, music and math, Wipeout's slapstick appeal really needs no language. Although schadenfreude plays a little into our pleasure, we really know it's all about us and our dreams of someday testing our own mettle against the big balls. Check your pride at the door. This is all about the ride.
