American Ninja Warrior
Sep 15, 2014TV Network - NBC
Tonight's episode isn't quite the season finale for "American Ninja Warrior," but it sort of almost is, maybe. Technically, the season ended last week, but in reality, everyone wants to see this episode, the whole season has been building (or built, cause, you know, past tense) to it. This it the week where the US takes on the world. Will we win? Will the world win? Will it be a draw? We simply do not know at this point. We have to say that the odds are heavily stacked in favor of the world, what with the far greater population the world has an ninjas not being originally from the States, but that doesn't mean we can't pull off an upset. Go team.

Do you remember a couple of weeks back how we said you should watch "American Ninja Warrior" because the Dallas Finals were on and it should be interesting. Yes, well, that was the week that everyone was talking about the show due to the amazing run on the obstacle course one woman made. Now, we don't like to toot our own horns, but we absolutely suggested you watch it and we weren't wrong. Will our prognosticating be as good today? Tonight we're getting the national finals, so it should be interesting.

Last week, sadly, there was no new episode of "American Ninja Warrior." It made us sad and we presume it made you sad as well. That all gets fixed tonight as we're back to new episodes and, at this moment, it looks like every Monday night from here through mid-August is going to be new, and that we're only going to not have a new episode on a Monday once from now until the season ends in September. So, tune in and see who excels tonight, and it's a big night, because it's the Dallas finals.

Previously, "American Ninja Warrior" was shown on both NBC and G4, but that is no longer the case. NBC is presenting the originals this year, and all we wonder now is how much the format may be altered. In general, are going to watch folks compete in obstacle courses in regional rounds with the winners moving on to a national round with which features a "four-stage course modeled after the famed Mt. Midoriyama in Japan." The plan, at this moment, is to air weekly episodes from now to mid-September when the winner will be crowned.

The goal of "American Ninja Warrior" is, as you may suspect, to find some sort of American ninja warrior. Contestants are, in regional competitions, put through their paces to find out if they have what it takes to face the finals in Las Vegas. In the finals, the contestants have to survive an obstacle course based on Mt. Midoriyama in Japan. We aren't quite convinced that the winner(s) is/are ninjas or get to call themselves ninjas for having completed the course, but we would bet that they is/are impressive physical specimens. Watch as the quest begins anew tonight.
