The Best show AXN had to offer
1 September 2005 | by surajalvaSee all my reviews

i watched this show when i was in India since we get AxN {a Sony entertainment network}.its a really great show that keeps you on the edge of your couch.From the classic....riding a bike across two skyscrapers to the very easy destruction of a very bulky book ..this show was among the best and it was also best in its themes and ideas.this is an Australian TV show and probably one of the best breathtaking shows that the great Island had to offer.I also liked the hosts especially the lady.she is HOT HOT HOT.{my rating 4 out of a possible 5.hey and somebody knows whether the show is cancelled or what?cause i don't see it anymore.if u ever get a chance watch it it even beats out fear factor.
