The Quiz Show 2 is probably my favourite Sho drama. It was so intense! Sho's acting was awesome and I think he played his character very well. I really liked how the story progressed. Yokoyama Yu was great in this drama too.

I loved The Quiz Show 2. I think it was the first drama I watched, and I totally watched it for Sho initially but I ended up loving the whole plot and concept of it from the first episode. The acting was fantastic, not just by Sho but also Yoko as you mentioned. It was just a very good drama in and of itself, imo.

Sho is my go-to Arashi member when it comes to drama. I love everything he's in and since he often plays rather dark characters (Kazoku Game, The Quiz Show) it matches my tastes perfectly. The Quiz Show 2 is one of my favorite dramas in general, not just Arashi-related ;) I'm not a fan of Kanjani8, but Yokoyama and Sho both hit their roles out of the park :D

I love this drama! Similar to JudasFm, I was only watching it for Sho, but it was so good I got hooked. I even considered trying to watch the original after, haha.

I like Kanjani, but in so much of what I saw Yokoyama acting in around that time (Quiz Show, Hidarime Tantei Eye) I really hated his character so I just feel like I hate him as a person lol. But I think that means he acts really well if I can't separate that out. XD

That really shows his acting is good. I think he is a quite solid actor.

Season 1 isn't bad but the original actor isn't as good as Sho. Sho's the main MC for just about everything Arashi-related so this is a perfect role for him. The other actor was good but his performance wasn't quite as polished.

Shos's Kamiyama is so good, his faces are so superior, his antics and all, he was so damaged that at the end I dont know if his freedom was the answer.
