I just have a question that has been plaguing myself and my flatmates for a couple of months now. At the beginning of the show (eg. Bite the Bun, Knock Knock, etc) it is always light and then as you go through the show until you reach the Final Showdown it gets progresssively darker. So, this is my question: Was the unedited, original Japanese version of the show about four hours long? Because you never see all of the 82 contestants that get through the initial game do the other games, so presumably it is edited down quite a bit. And it looks like its about 5pm (or earlier, I guess) when they start and like, 9pm at the Final Showdown...
Also, sometimes you see the same person who failed at one game try another one - what's going on there? I guess somebody who has seen the unedited subtitled version will be able to put me right.
