Has anyone in the UK or some other europe country, or indeed Japan been watching Takeshi's Castle? In the UK it's on challenge tv and trouble, and narrated by Craig Charles (lister from Red Dwarf, and the guy from robot wars).
Takeshi's Castle is a brilliant series, where it takes 100 people - men and women - and puts them through dangerous contests to progress to the last round. One such is "Skipping Stones" where they run full-pelt across a lake with some real stones and some fake ones. If they hit a fake one, the stone sinks, and they go flying into the real stones and look like they hurt themselves. Another is "knock knock" where there is 4 walls one behind the other, each wall has 4 doors. Two fake and two real, and they have to run full speed at the doors and dive through (if they get a fake door, its hillarious).
There are so many dangerous and funny games on this show, was just wondering if anyone else wached it? America ported a version I think of it, but called it something else and changed it completely (less dangerous too), which has wrecke the feel of it by what i've been told.
Anyway, anyone else watch this show?
I hope I can find it on kazaa or something to download a few episodes, it's great.
