Once upon a time I saw a few episodes of a japanese TV show about a girl who runs an okonomiyaki restaurant (I think?) in Japan who travels the country with her cast-iron griddle looking for her father. Every episode ends with her in a cook-off against some random person. It was on TV in the Bay Area and subtitled. What the heck was this show? It has defeated even my powerful google-fu.

There is a video making the rounds that is supposedly from an extreme Japanese pranks show called "Panic Face King." I have been unable to find any additional information on this show, which leads me to believe this is not the real name (or not the correct translation). [more inside]

Looking for a TV tuner, but here's the catch: it has to be compatible with a MacBook (so USB or FireWire only), and I'd really prefer if it supported both US and Japan over-the-air broadcasts (bonus points for HD).

What was that TV show I just saw in Japan? It seemed to be a comedy about a neurotic architect and his cute neighbors. It intrigued me. [more inside]
