Documental: Season 3

    In June, the third season of Documental premiered on US Amazon Prime Video, and it's as funny/dirty/nude as the previous season we reviewed. Ten comedians handpicked by comedy legend Hitoshi Matsumoto spend six hours locked in a room together trying not to laugh. Whoever survives wins ¥10 million. And this season, contestants who go out early can come back as "zombies" to try and crack up those who remain.

    The Japanese is fast and slangy, so advanced learners will get the most benefit (shadowing this material will certainly add some edge to your speaking game). For everyone else, turn on the subtitles, and try to keep up. It's a hilarious show, and by the end you'll walk away with some new vocab and phrases. Just make sure you try them out in appropriate settings, okay?
