Bunk is the best game show around. It has way more interesting categories than Jeopardy, harder challenges than Wheel of Fortune, and a more logical set of rules than Price is Right. Plus host Kurt Braunohler is far more dashing than Pat Sajak, Alex Trebek, and Drew Carey combined. (Dashing in this instance means barefoot.) Want to know exactly how different (read: way way better) Bunk is than your average ho-hum game show look no further than Friday night’s episode. Contestants Kumail Nanjiani, Eugene Mirman, and Tom Lennon were all asked to slap producer Gabe the hardest. No back story necessary, just slap him. Would you see that on the Dating Game? Chuck Woolery would never stand for it, no matter how much the producers deserved it. That’s exactly why we’re firmly Team Bunk.
Watch the clip below and see for yourself that this game show is the best use of half an hour on a Friday night at 10:30 p.m. ET.
Bunk airs on IFC on Fridays at 10:30/9:30c
