Storyline

What can I say about this show? If you've ever seen a Japanese game show before, or have witnessed them on 'Tarrant on TV' then you should know what it is all about. With Japanese star Takeshi Kitano as the lord of the castle, one-hundred members of the Japanese public pit themselves against a host of crazy physical games in order to gain the ultimate accolade; to be one of the few who actually completed the game. Not only are most of the games virtually impossible, but if you do manage to get to the final round without breaking a few bones then you are pitted against men driving around in little buggies attempting to shoot you with lazers! It's quite insane and nigh on impossible to finish! Not that there is any point; contestants go home with nothing but bruises! All this craziness is narrated fantastically by Craig Charles of 'Red Dwarf' fame with choice replays and mud-galore. Perhaps this is the worse TV show in the world, but watch it once and you will never stop! Written by Adam Johnson

Takeshi's Castle
26 May 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Brilliant show. Love it. I watch this show all the time and I am not bored of it. It keeps me happy. My favourite character in the show has to be either Animal or Blondie. I have so many favourite games, one of them being Sumo Rings. The show makes it even more funny with Craig Charles commentating it. There is hardly any winners though. There had to be about 2 or 3 winners and that was it. When it gets to the showdown at the end, I vote for the guards because I know they will win all the time. Is there going to be another series? If so, let me know please. I have no idea if there is going to be another series. I really need to know please.
