Are You Scared?

In 2003 and 4, one of my favorite shows to watch was a hidden camera one called "Scare Tactics". It placed ordinary people in extraordinary situations. I loved watching each "victim" gradually be overcome by fear and then relieved when it was revealed that what they had just experienced was merely a prank.

The last new ep of "Tactics" aired at the end of '4 and I figured that was it, since it didn't return in '5. Imagine my joy a few months ago when I heard that new eps were in production. I finally got to check them out, the first new ones in more than 3 years, the night before last and was not disappointed. Here is one of my favorites:

I loved this show. It's funny how the jokees are not even angry because the situation was sooo horrible that they are so releived it is not real that there is no anger, at least not for a while.

Rocket, I've noticed that as well and actually think it's a bit of an adrenaline rush for the victims to be so scared, kinda like being scared while on a roller coaster, but once it's over, feeling that rush of endorphins.

Have a good weekend, tough guy.
