Any Fans of TNN's MXC?

Most Extreme Elimination Challange has reached a pinnacle of broadcasting excellence. It's sort of a cross between Iron Chefs and Mystery Science Theatre 3000. The fictitious commentating is top notch, and watching people hurt themselves is funny too.

I used to watch Takeshi's Castle on German satellite, and this is similar stunts, only with funny remarks as well, such as:
And he goes into a 90 degree fisterton!

And featuring the Taco Bell impact replay.

I highly recommend this show.

Holy Cow...
I nearly puked from laughing so much!

I love it, even without the commentary it was great. I was wishing so much for that one guy who was diving head-first into the fake/real doors to hit a real one. I know I would have definately wet myself if he had.

Would have been worth it though!

This show had me peeing myself when I first came upon it.

One question I have is...why do all the contestants run at full speed into whatever stunt they are doing!? I thought it must be a rule in the Japanese show that just doesn't get talked about on our end, but then I see a few people taking their time with the stunts and they don't seem to get penalized.

That guy that was running full force, head first into the doors is a perfect example, he was definitley insane.

Anyone see the guy that tried to do a backflip before he started his pond stunt. He didn't make it, landed on his head.

Is anyone familiar with the original show (Takeshi's castle)? What are these people playing for? How do they even win?

I was definitely rooting for that headfirst guy to ram into the wall, and it turns out that he's the first one to make it through! Argh. Loved the rollerskating horses. Still, it's good only in small doses.

They keep re-running the same 5-6 episodes, it's getting boring IMO

I saw it for the first time this weekend and I almost wet myself. I couldn't believe how funny it was. Then they showed another episode immediately after and I got a little bored.

Has my attention span gotten that short?

Still, those people trying to run over those big rollers....and the lady who falls face first into them...and the Taco Bell replay. Oh, so funny.
