Re: Takeshi's Castle Thailand WILL air in the Uk...


I find it ugly. DuffDan aletakeshicastle and one of their comrades is a huge hating a distasteful Takeishi remake. Messup is a huge appluading a novel effort. I find it more pleasant. He is not the biggest Takeishi remake support however he is hugely more pleasant. I find it nice. He is nicer o.

I am a huge compliment to pleasant behavior maybe. I find it crazy and novel.

Jokes are supposed to be funny.

And it IS supposed to appeal to long-time fans. That's exactly what they said themselves. It's not made to be a highlights version, it's just ended up looking like that because of their poor editing decisions.

I really don't think writing to them would get us anywhere. They'll already have put a bunch of episodes together, if not all of them, and even if they've not finished they're not going to change the way they edit it because one or two of us complain. emoticon

Why do I have a feeling that the scripts for this were written by the same people that did Washout. It has the same style, and same level of humour. I.e.: None.

Scripting the whole thing just doesn't work. The voice-over has to react to what's happening, not just sit there and read pre-written lines.

Pretty much losing my faith by watching these videos. I really don't know if Fernando Costilla and Paco Bravo can fix this mess in the Spanish version. My guess is: give Comedy Central Spain the raw episodes without editing and let them edit them as they wish, just like in Cuatro. If they do that, they can really do something out of it and true to the original.

Yeah, Fernando and Paco can still make it fun, but with the editing... duh.

You know.... Challenge would never* post on their Facebook page "Can somebody explain to us why people are so stupid to watch Takeshi's Castle? How is this even considered to be interesting or funny?" Facebook would blow up, even if it was meant to be funny.

And screwing up the names (not just with Spud, but also with the games) might seem harmless compared to that post, but the effect is the same: a kick between the legs for every fan.

When I was younger and was on the internet for the first time, I was looking for Takeshi's Castle, because it was not on TV anymore. And I found an English website and they gave people stupid names. Pop & Corn (which is not correct, but the name that I learned on TV) were called Rainbow Warrios. General Tani was General Lee. My first thought was that somebody makes fun of the show that I loved. And I've never visited that website again... (at least not until I figured out that there's more than just the DSF version and that there's more to the UK version than silly names)

And writing is lame. Pretty lame. The writing on the German dub for the UK version was lame... the last guy to voice over the RTL2 version used to voice over clip shows. But compared to Jonathon Ross it was brilliant. JR is just boring and probably bored. Less energetic than a dead battery.

(* I shouldn't say never. Experience has taught me that there are indeed people who are that stupid...)

Ouch, that kick hurt! emoticon

I understand that but I honestly think they just had some lowly-paid intern translate the Thai names of everything and stuck those on. When they got "Weawtar" they probably just said "Eh, this name makes no sense in translation, let's make it a joke" when they should've said "Let's see what this character was called in the UK." So yeah, I agree it's problematic but it's a new way of promoting TC so (at least till it airs) I'll appreciate it for what it does for us. Passing popcorn for Thursday emoticon

Maybe I'm a contrarian, but I feel like this new version deserves a shot.

I notice that their Knock Knock video features the guy in green chasing them which would mean its episode 2's game. Wonder if they're skipping over the episode one Knock Knock because it went on for a long time. A bit of a shame as finding the weapons in the sandpit was fun.

45 minutes, guys. Anybody got a live stream? And a Discord server to chat?

EDIT: Just found a live stream. Here you are. The only thing you need to do is disabling your adblocker.

By the way. Just one question. WHY DOES FRIENDS CHASE ME EVERYWHERE I GO?!

Friends replaced WWE RAW & SmackDown Live on the weekends. They moved the WWE programming to 12.45pm Spanish time without saying a word. It's Friends all the time. WHY DO THEY AIR IT ON COMEDY CENTRAL UK AS WELL?

I’ve found a stream for you. Hopefully it works outside the UK?
