24 June 2008 | by (Argentina) – See all my reviews

The American version of the Japanese monster hit "Takeshi's Castle" pits a group of 12 Americans battling it out on a giant (funny) obstacle course where they get hit, splashed, punched, toppled, muddied and a lot more in their quest to win $50,000. Though the pilot had a few bugs (we don't know anything about the contestants and it tends to be one unknown person after the other getting soaked or hit in the groin--granted, that worked for "AFV") it also had some bonuses the Japanese show did not have. Namely, the comedy of former "Talk Soup" host John Henson (ABC is a funnier place with him on the network) and hotty Jill Wagner doing sideline reporting. Jill is not only a BABE, but pretty good at what she does, too.

I'm sure they will make adjustments along the way, but after seeing the first show, there's enough promise to give it a try this summer. Check it out!
