Rate the Seasons


Do as the title says and give each season a 1-10 rating!

My opinion is that series 1 deserves a 6. It was a solid season that introduced the show well. It had some great characters and competitors and had a very original show vibe to it. The issue was only really the lack of games, and the fact that they were only sparsely mixed-up. There were a few other little things (not loving the music or the cartoons/smilies they love putting up) but I thought it was overall a strong effort emoticon

For season 2, I'd give it a matching score: a 2! The show took a serious blow by moving location and building the bare-minimum number of games. This made for 20 episodes that often felt identical to each other and a rather stale season off-the-bat. A couple of the games (Mud Ball and Rice Bowl) weren't done all that well, and they ruined Skipping Stones over the move. Many episodes featured girl groups who put in no effort to try to win games. These "specials" were also all clumped together near the middle of the season, making it almost feel like they ran-out of groups to invite at the end. The show lost a lot of its original TC vibe with the change in location and the general lack of regular competitors. I did appreciate seeing a bit more (slight) variation in the games themselves: having different Final Fall distractions (although it is admittedly all the same TBH), occasional pairs in Rice Bowl Down Hill and different combinations of guards in games like Rice Bowl and Mud Ball. Still, this didn't come close to solving the issue of having identical games every episode. We need at least five new/returning editions next season IMO.

Re: Rate the Seasons


I gave them exactly the same scores without even looking at yours!

The first series had promise. There were some dissapointments (Mushroom Trip, as usual, and the castle is still rubbish) but they had more games than the mimimal number need to fill an episode, unlike series two, and they did eventually add a couple more new ones further into the series.

Nothing needs to be said about how bad series two was. I gave it one point for introducing new games that weren’t in the firsthand series, and another point for existing and keeping Takeshi’s Castle alive in some way.
That’s the best I can say about it.

To be fair, they began with the minimal number then too - it was only ep 10 (when they started adding the few new ones) that they did have more than that (and it was usually pretty predictable what game replaced what), but yeah it was still 1,000,000 times better.

Season 2 was just a complete crash, really hope they can regroup. At least rebuild Mushroom Trip, Wipe Out and Bridge Ball in the lake behind Skipping Stones!

Re: Rate the Seasons


Season 1 was novel. I find it novel. Crashing teacup so featured. The lovely assistant featured. A guard wearing a skeleton chain necklace did not feature hardly. I find it pleasant. The season was a little inpredictable hardly o. I find ornate annoying. I was hugely upset when they changed events a little. One time they played wobbly bridge instead of riding the surfboard. I find the idea quite crass.

Season 2 was lovely. It was good o. Several winner teams featured huh? I find ir beautiful. The set is good. I find it good. Honeycomb rooms is a little dicey however sometimes they win o. I find it relieving. I am a huge catching the ball. I am not the biggest mushroom thatswivels on an access though. I find it creepy. I find my vocabulary imprsssive o.

Annnnd that's where I hope the producers stop reading emoticon

Honestly, miamigirl, you may be the only one posting here next season!

Still seen nothing of filming, let's hope they've just pushed back the date to get more games built emoticon
