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

User Reviews

Simply breath taking, stunning work from Charles.
1 September 2004 | by cleindiansownSee all my reviews

This is one of the greatest acting jobs in the history of all acting. Seriously, Charles puts you in the drivers seat, he makes you feel like you are living the life of a true movie star. With his fame stemming from the hit series "Robot Wars", Charles has devoloped fine speaking skills and a killer body. His handsome face can only be matched by one man, Dante. Dante is more commonly known as DANTEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!

Truly, Charles has shocked the entertainment world with his slim figure filling leather jackets which have been processed through paper shredders. I think Charles should contact a new suiter, don't you think? All in all, A-Class work from a brilliant mind. ANTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTT.
