Utter garbage
24 June 2008 | by (Toronto) – See all my reviews

"Wipe-out" is a remake of the American reality show "Most Extreme Elimination Challenge", which itself was just an English-dubbed version of the Japanese gameshow "Takeshi's Castle" which aired in the 80's.

The original Japanese show was funny and mildly fascinating, the way it is fascinating to watch a train wreck you are not involved in.

This new series is the same old stuff but Americanized. As with most remakes, something about the original show is lost in the recreation. You would think after the TV writers strike ended, there would be better programming than this.

Warning: if you watch even 5 minutes of this crap, that is 5 minutes of your life you will never get back.
