The boat Show Down does look really cool! And they keep score!

I'm assuming Takeshi has 2 points not two boats down.

I don't think Takeshi hs a grand boat. I didn't see it at least. Just give similar gird boats.

Re: Takeshi's Castle Vietnam: Episode 1 (25th March)


There wasn't a boat for Takeshi. It seems to be that the contestants have to knock out all the Guard boats to win. I do like the light-up paper rings.

If their aim was to make Slip Way as dull as possible, they succeeded. At least TCT's Cheat Way had a bit of pace to it. You can even say that about this version.

I HATE the way they've edited the games. Completely muting the actual audio and having only music playing. It's not like there was even a commentator to at least add another layer to it. It ruined the Honeycomb Maze the most. That would have been fine if you could actually hear it. The way they've done it makes it seem as if you're watching some kind of highlights montage. A very long highlights montage. It makes you so detached from the whole thing.

I really, reeeeally hope they change the way they edit it, and leave in the proper sound at least.

And only five games. Just TWO main games. The other three will be exactly the same every week. Seriously, wtf?
But maybe they had the extra long intro this week to fit in the whole introduction and set up the story. It did take 20 minutes to get to a game. There's enough time to fit in another two, hopefully three, games.

If it had more games and was edited differently it'd be a really enjoyable show.
The cast is great, they've done well there. Not sure how you think they look the same as the Thai cast though Messup. None of them look similar at all! The only lookalike is between this General and the Indonesian one. They DO look very similar.

Re: Takeshi's Castle Vietnam: Episode 1 (25th March)


I will post as I watch.

Right off the bat I like the opening titles better than the Indonesian one. I like the drama of introducing Takeshi and Woonsen in the Castle. Dramatic lighting. Costumes look better than in Indonesias. These guys remind me of the TCT people. Like the rap. Oh buts he's got the same cheesey wig like TCT. Really like the rap! He's a younger Takeshi because in the other one the Takeshi guy is older than the sidekicks or whatever you call these people, but on this one, he is younger. The background screen in the castle looks like the Wifi signal. This guy is thin. Okay a little over the top. But you know it's TC so it's always over the top. Uck I'd like more games! How long is this intro taking. This intro is going on too long. Let's get to the games. Ooh Woonsen looks so much like the other one a little. Dramatic entrance. Seems like they have more people on the cast. Those people are taking it very seriously. Ha! Who's she calling for? Oh, Shakrit! You know how on TCT Woonsen was always smiling and not acting like a prisoner but on here she is acting like a prisoner. Is she gonna sing? Is she gonna sing? Did he just break into English? Has his mustache fallen off. Didn't it used to be together? It migrated? The guy on the left had a mustache that migrated.

Boat entrance of Shakrit. Cool! He missssses her so much. He's heartbroken. Very dramatic! The arrival of Plaku! The comic figure! No not back to this!

We may only be 10 minutes into it with no games but it feels like 20. Get to the games? Do you know what the significance of the black star is? Love the rolling entrance of Fern! Very cute! Oh gosh this is dragging. I think this is too much. How many minutes into it now are we? Next episode can not have such long an intro, right? Hopefully next episode does not have such long an intro. Oh my gosh just come on! Don't most Takeshi Castle fans like the games? Much more than whatever this is called? You know what? Fern has a hard time doing forward-rolls. Huh? He's kinda flirting with her isn't he? Lot of overacting. Yeah she's got the pink dye in it. Didn't Fern do that one time? I wonder what she's saying to him, with him in Vietnamese. How many minutes and still no game? Huh 17 minutes out of an hour show not counting the commercials. Maybe it's cheaper making this stuff where you've just got a camera pointed at a handful of people. Come on!

18 minutes 37 seconds until the challengers begin running toward the first obstacle finally. You know watching this last night I was much more impressed with the set, costumes and people but now that I watch it awake I think it is distasteful. Not back to the castle! At 18 minutes 37 seconds the competitors were charging toward the Slippery Wall but now we are back to Takeshi and the other guys. It is past 20 minutes! I may not finish this episode! Have they actually gotten people on an obstacle? 21 minutes 4 seconds until they actually start running. The Slippery Wall looks nice. I like the looks of the new game, I like that it’s got all the people. I’m less impressed. Oh yeah it’s very steep. I’m overall less impressed. I am not interested hardly. I do not have many other remarks about this game. It is now 26 minutes 13 seconds. That’s crazy. Plaku’s voice is annoying. My husband says Fern looks younger. Yes, maybe so. I can not understand. We are 29 minutes 6 seconds into the episode.

Slip Way looks reused.

Re: Takeshi's Castle Vietnam: Episode 1 (25th March)


^Whoa!

First of all I'll say that I wasn't so impressed after watching the episode. It just wasn't too impressive emoticon It wasn't bad but it wasn't great.

First up I'll start on characters. Honestly on this they did really well and yes the characters DO look similar Mr. Dan emoticon

emoticon

But yeah I liked them and I found Fern to be funny. She was certainly the closest lookalike she had and miamigirl and I agree that she would be a believable sister of Fern. The somersaults really were a blast from the past emoticon

I agree that Shakrit and Plakung don't look too similar but from a distance they do, I think. Plakung's wig is his main similarity to actual Plakung though emoticon

As for the games, my thoughts were mixed. Slippery Wall and Final Fall being my higher-rated games already shows signs of error, mainly because Slip Way and Honeycomb Maze were SO BAD. The Honeycomb Maze felt really disconnected (due to the sound, as Dan said) and it had about half of the people clearing it. Slip Way was just awful. People cheating, nothing interesting. I never expected that Thailand's Slip Way could be made worse! Slippery Wall and Final Fall were just about what they should be and I thought the boat Show Down (and score-keeping) was really cool. The only suggestions I have here are to add a boat for Takeshi and put the scoreboard down near the bottom instead of having it come up full-screen and interrupt the game.

The show took forever to get started, and this may be the most negative point. I can't believe they took longer than TCT did on their first episode! Once it started, the games went by quickly enough (not too many interviews), but that's mainly because after Slippery Wall they'd already used up half of the show emoticon

They could definitely add two, maaaaybe three , games to episodes. I see this possibly happening.. emoticon I would much rather not have a set number of games and just have a range as the original show did. Keeps things less predictable. Hopefully they shake them up well and don't always have Slip Way or something.

It's strange how it's filmed in the middle of a park and people are just walking by and looking emoticon

Overall 5 out of 10.
