month I found myself sitting in a living room, surrounded
by twenty other men that were mostly drunk. Keep your gay
jokes to yourself because I was having my cherry popped in
a different way that night. I was watching my very first episode
of Spike TV's Most Extreme Elimination Challenge and
now, I just can't stop.
Part Double Dare, part Mystery Science Theater,
Most Extreme Elimination Challenge is a Japanese game
show called Takashi's Castle where teams of grown men
and women compete against each other in a series of goofy
stunt courses. Unlike most American game shows however, the
stunts are difficult and the contestants often fail in painful
looking and hilarious ways.
leads to choruses of "oooos," "ahhhs" and the occasional "holy
s***" when you watch it with a crowd.
To add to the fun, the Japanese dialogue is dubbed over
in English, but the translations are not literal. Instead,
creators have replaced the show's original dialog with nothing
but jokes, ranging from well thought out character bits to
riotous one liners.
If you are a fan of Jackass, MST3k, Iron Chef or
American Gladiators (with hecklers) then you'll love
Most Extreme Elimination Challenge.
Spike TV broadcasts two 30 minute episodes every Saturday
night at but there is a three hour marathon this Thursday
night (November 11th) starting at 9pm eastern. Take my word
for it and watch it. In fact, you'd better tape it so you
can show your friends.
