The Floor Is Lava is the most-watched show in the US right now. That’s right, a TV show about the children’s game ‘the floor is lava.’ The show is actually spectacularly done, with its top-notch obstacle courses, as The Daily Beast details:
The series is squarely of the Wipeout and Holey Moley “people epically fall off obstacle courses and we laugh at them” family. As far as these things go, it’s spectacularly done.
Oversized furniture is scattered across a large room that, to escalate the hilarity, is filled with a pool of bubbling red liquid meant to look like lava. The gameplay is the same as it was for me as a kid [redacted] years ago: You gotta get from one side of the room to the other without touching the floor. Because the floor is lava.
