    It’s an adaptation of the french program “vendredi tout est permis” …. it really is a fun game, you really have a good time watching them do all of those crazy challenges.

      Wow. Really? That’s a first. Usually, we (french television) adapt american programs. not the other way around.

    Riot is a riot!
    Have loved almost every moment except the episode with Andy Dick. Why be there if he wasn’t going to play? He nearly ruined it all. Tom Green and the improv players proved bore good they were in spite of Andy. All in all a wonderful fun and laugh – filled show. Thank you!
