Who watches this? Proper funny, it's an old crazy Japanese gameshow where contestants have to do these mad tasks.

Also known as MXC in the States...



More clips:



This one is Dutch but the quality is good.

This is episode 1 in English (UK dub) in 3 parts:

Havn't watched Challange in forever so it;s been a long time since i've seen n episode of T's castle. Brilliant and funny as hell game show. But noone ever wins which was a shame.

Winners are rare!

Although I have seen a few people win.

Here's a clip of the first ever winner to grace the show.

'What do they win though? Absalutly nothing!'

First ever winner and nothing happens. I guess they werent prepared for someone to actually win the gameshow.

MXC on the Spike channel is f*cking hilarious. I love the voice overs.

I remember when I used to watch this a lot, my favourite one was where they had to cross a narrow bridge while getting balls shot at them from cannons. The maze was pretty cool too, I remember seeing one guy just hanging onto a door swinging over the mud pit which made me laugh. Hilarious show.

That's the first time I've ever seen anybody win it. Funny if they really don't get anything for winning.

The winner recieves 1 million yen.

And it's glad to see people across the world enjoying the show, although the voice overs are painfully annoying. The UK dub just has craig charles commentating who too can become annoying but is tolerable.

Some of the Takeshi's Castle (same show, different voiceovers) was pretty good but I've seen a few of the MXC episodes and its not as good.

I'd prefer the original translation of Japanese rather than what the Americans have put as voiceovers.

I feel the same way.

I love how "Ken" makes all the sexual remarks to the mostly unattractive Japanese women.

MXC ftw!

I used to watch this almost everyday! I love the big roller things they have to walk across, I think its called high rollers or something.

I have only ever seen one person win and from what I gathered they didn't win anything.... confused.gif

Nope I'm serious, I have seen at least 2 people win when watching it on Challenge, and the winner gets money.

The reason why I prefer Takeshi's Castle to MXC is because a lot of humor is taken out by the voice overs, the rules change where on MXC there are the red and blue teams, when infact there's isn't any teams, just 100 contstants going for gold. Plus the name's of the games are more close to the original names on the UK one, but MXC makes stupid names, usually a pun of something sexual.

Anyway that's my piece, we did get a few episodes of MXC on Challenge TV once, after showing them the never aired anymore.

And even saying that, watching the show in any language is funny, you good thing about MXC is it doesn't waste time and shows the funiest parts.
