Abysmal with the hosts, passable without.
9 May 2013 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

I remember MXC quite fondly because of its ability to compliment the difficult and often times surreal "challenges" with funny, witty, or equally surreal commentary in general. The show flowed really well, and although it was absolutely stupid television, it was stupid television that knew what it was and played off of that very effectively indeed. Wipeout, on the other hand, is much dumber television without any of the charm or self awareness its predecessor had. The show is similar in that there are contestants putting themselves through an assortment of challenges, and it's hosted by two human males, but its similarities stop there unfortunately.

If you're going to have a show with people talking constantly and without pause, you need to be sure those people are both entertaining, and have something relevant to say. The hosts on Wipeout have neither, and bombard the viewer with the most terrible of jokes that offer no benefit to the show whatsoever. They range from outright pathetic to mean to tasteless, which would be fine if they could be funny, but never have I heard a single thing from either of them that I felt needed to be said, or enhanced the experience in any way. I cannot stand hearing them talk, to the point that I NEED to mute the TV when it comes on, it isn't something I can tolerate even as background noise, as it does nothing but dampen my mood.

The one good thing I can say about this show is that they sometimes have interesting or funny contestants, such as Ariel Tweto, but this too highlights how worthless and talentless the hosts and Jill whatshername actually are. They're constantly overshadowed by the no-names that put themselves through that torture and, rather than playing off of their characters as MXC would do, they in most cases insult them or offer some obvious poorly written crack about the situation they're in.

This show is like a castrated, dull, tedious version of MXC, hosted by two Tom Bergeron-tier absolute existential failures. It's watchable if you mute it, but if you have a shred of human integrity, compassion, or a taste for humor outside of puns and douchebaggery, look very far away from here.
