Did You Know?


Takeshi's Castle (1986) involves not teams, but all 100 contestants trying to get past the challenges, thus the numbers sometimes listed in Japanese on the bottom of the screen. The golden tank "Kenny" and "Vic" are sometimes seen in during final segments is part of "Takeshi's Castle"'s extremely difficult endgame, in which contestants who survive all the challenges try to defeat Takeshi and his minions in a motorized tank battle.

Hilarious, inspired show!
1 February 2004 | by (Chicago, Illinois, USA) – See all my reviews

Probably like a lot of people, I discovered this show while idly channel-flipping. At first the games themselves fascinated me. I'd heard about Japanese game shows for years, but only seen brief snippets of them. I started laughing hysterically as a succession of hapless schmucks got slammed by huge fake boulders rolling down a narrow channel. But it took a while for the bizarre and clever dubbed-in voiceovers to register. Once they did, I realized that I'd found a new favorite. This show combines elements of "Fear Factor" with "Mystery Science Theater 3000" and "What's Up Tiger Lilly?" The completely made-up spoof of Japanese game shows called "Banzai" that was briefly popular a few months ago was somewhat amusing, but this show just delivers HUGE and consistent belly laughs, and that's as healthy as a tub of granola and tofu, and lots easier to take.

An earlier poster listed the fake names given to some of the games in this show, but I just heard my favorite tonight. In this game, a contestant clings to a huge spinning mushroom that is propelled over a pool of muddy water, trying to land on a small platform at the other end of the pool. The name of the game was "Eat Shitaki." I almost ruptured myself.
