Cannonball


Think this is the series which will make even Total Wipeout look good, but Cannonball debuts on ITV next Saturday. I know there has been a Dutch version, whilst an Aussie version was filmed about a year ago but has never made it to air.

Looks incredibly cheap - just a few simple water based obstacles and a very loose format linking them together. It's like Total Wipeout but with even less imagination and creativity - and that's saying something!

Re: Cannonball


So it's like a competition-format in the different challenges and they have to win them to get medals? "The three with the most medals" is throwing me off because there only seem to be a few different stunts. Seems like there'd be a bunch of ties between people who earned one medal. Or maybe the "heats" refer to all of the qualifying episodes overall, not just the different challenges that one episode has emoticon

Most of it looks pretty naff, although the bowling game and rope swing bullseye look alright, I guess. I wonder if The Blob will be all about getting as far as possible or hitting a target or something.

Can't believe they didn't make it 20 competitors or something, to hide that they're basing a lot on Wipeout

I've read a little about this and yeah, it's like someone saw Washout and thought "you know what, they change stuff too much an it's too expensive to produce. What we need is a handful of blowup obstacles that we can use every single episode. PEOPLE WILL LOVE IT".

No.

Re: Cannonball


It looks a little temporary. It may be planned like that thing from several months ago in Vietnams and only last for a number of episodes. It may be one time only too. I find it possible. They have some of the games from Vietnams. The bowling pin and rope swing are both quite familiar looking. The one they launch out of is like that stupid thing on Spamalot probably. I hope climbing the wall and the blueberries make an appearance o. I find it hopeful.

Just seen a preview clip, and it's so obvious how this show is going to turn out! emoticon

Oh, and they've got human skittles [sign in to see URL] it's a person in a ball instead of a pin costume which is so much [sign in to see URL] emoticon emoticon

I didn't even bother watching. Reading about it was enough.

Annoying that it's not playing on ITV's site. Well, they have Cash Trapped on there, so I've got that now emoticon

Are you using a proxy thing, as it won't work outside the UK?
