Retro Game Master (Game Centre CX)
Retro Game Master is a Japanese variety show focused on Arino, a middle-aged Japanese comedian tackling the world of retro gaming! See as he struggles, and ultimately triumphs against some of the most difficult video games ever made in this oddly addicting series.
The series was a huge hit in Japan, even spawning two video games for the Nintendo DS (the first of which was localized by our own XSEED as Retro Game Challenge). Despite this, the series hasn't found a home in the US. Until now, Kotaku has picked up 13 episodes of the series and plans on streaming a new episode every Thursday at 8PM EST. The episodes are only viewable for North American visitors. The episodes featured an overdubbed announcer in English, but all of Arino's, and his AD (Assistant Directors) dialog are subtitled in English with the Japanese audio.

Episode 2: Super Fantasy Zone

Yeah I love that show. I hear though Kotaku cut a lot of segments out of it. Pretty much anything that doesn't have to do with Arino playing his game. They are jumping around a lot in the episodes too. Despite that, I still love watching it
