Wow, I really didn't expect that! emoticon

None of us thought it would ever air in the UK, but it's a little bit unusual for it to be shown on Comedy Central. I say that because the channel is a joint venture between Sky and Paramount. Maybe Comedy Central has a bigger budget than Challenge?

The only people losing out are those who watch Challenge on Freesat and Freeview, but I suppose, the Thai series is on YouTube in its original form and there's also Keshi Heads' very own edited episodes.

Jonathan Ross is not someone I would consider to do the voice-over, but hey, at least it's not an unknown, which reminds me of when Challenge got Dick and Dom to do the Rebooted series a few years ago. I'll definitely give Comedy Central's edit of the Thai series a go as I'm interested to see how it'll turn out.

Well Challenge could have got it years ago, but they didn't bother. Makes sense that Comedy Central have brought it seeing as they show TC in other countries.

Why not Craig. FFS. If only it was Dave that got it, then we would have got Craig. It'd fit on their channel too.
Pissed.

The only thing that gives me a little hope is that they used "Keshi-heads" in the press release. So they are acknowledging the show's history over here.

Hope they can edit it better than challenge did Rebooted.

Better still, hire me. I'll edit it. Thanks.

Gutted Craig isn't commentating on this, that really would have brought back childhood memories for me. I will give it a chance to see what it is like but I'm anxious that Comedy Central are going to ruin one of my favourite shows I grew up watching

Wow! This is cool emoticon

Aside from being awesome in itself, think about the benefits it can bring as a whole. It'll get Britain interested in TC again, allow us to watch old TCT episodes AND show maaaaaybe encourage TCT to finally get this promised new season! emoticon

I'm not saying all of that will happen, but I think it'll overall have a very positive effect emoticon

Interested to see if they mix it up so they don't start with three winners. I reckon they would but who knows. Will they show new format episodes? Could they possibly edit episodes 70, 71, 79, 80, 81 and 82 down so much that they become watchable?

So much to find out, and I'm excited for that emoticon

Theres going to be a Honeycomb Maze in London for people to play for one day only this Saturday, so the promotion looks good, lets hope that continues in the actual show.

Lets hope Rossy doesn't have to say Ridiculous Replay...

German Comedy Central announced that Comedy Central bought the international rights to Takeshi's Castle Thailand excluding the USA, Canada and Japan.

So if you get a local version of Comedy Central and don't like in the USA (Canada or Japan), you'll get to see the UK version next year.

Sounds great - will have to search for pictures of this Maze!

Ross's Ridiculous Replay actually has nice alliteration. They should use it emoticon

Hey Codex, why can't American fans watch it? :/

I don't know why Viacom didn't pick it up for the US. I guess that it just doesn't fit their schedule.

But here's an English release, that confirms that they won't show it in the US:

He can't pronounce Rs properly. So it'd be Woss's Widiculous Weplay. That wouldn't sound good.


I can't believe they're building a Honeycomb Maze for one day. If they can do that then just go build a bunch of games and make a UK verison. Thanks.

Actually I am impressed with the promotion this is getting.
The logo is alright too:

ALSO. We got a mention in the LadBible article about this! Two paragraphs about Keshi Heads and our campaign!! emoticon
Quote:

A website was set up for fans of the show, which was named after the playful nickname Craig Charles gave them, 'Keshi Heads'. The site launched a campaign in 2010 to get a new series commissioned to coincide with its 10th anniversary in the UK in 2012.

It didn't work, per se, but a deal was signed for unseen bits of the show. It was called Takeshi's Castle Rebooted, which aired from 8 to 29 March 2013 and featured various suggestions from the fan site. Dick and Dom were used to narrate the show, which didn't please everyone.

And now the site is down becuase we've had too many hits today emoticon
