My hearty congratulations to the Brits....
24 June 2010 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

Thanks for making one of the most entertaining, funny shows on TV into the dullest hour of television I've seen in some time.

When I saw this was going to play on local digital channel Go! I thought "yes", so imagine my absolute horror at the abomination that screens every weekday night on TV. This is boring, and I'm a committed "crap TV" watcher, so that's saying something.

The US version of this show is hysterical, the two John's make a great combination and technically the show cannot be faulted, but this woeful British version is best avoided. Richard Hammond's commentary is straight and unfunny, there is none of the colour that is injected into the US original, hell, even the commentary on the Australian version is better, but at least one of those guys is actually a commentator. I mentioned the technical aspect of the US show for a reason, this Brit version is VERY low rent, shadows and camera guys are everywhere, and even the other contestants cheering on the finalists is unnecessary at best. And then there is the course itself, even if you're a "bad" contestant you get through it it under 2 minutes, why bother? The final Wipeout course isn't much better, seemingly not very difficult at all, from what I've seen.

If you haven't seen the US version, by all means, knock yourself out. If you have, don't bother, this hysterically unfunny show will only break your heart and leave you feeling very, very cheated, wondering where that hour of your life went, and regretting the fact that you'll never get it back.
