Total Knockout


Coming this Summer is a new obstacle-course show hosted by Kevin Hart called 'Total Knockout'. It's a ten-episode-long series (I believe it's taping in front of a live-audience tomorrow) where the opponents supposedly try to slow each other down by throwing additional hindrances in each other's way as they run.

The "mess each other up with extra obstacles" idea is a concept we've never really seen (beyond the occasional Japanese show cancelled after the pilot), so this could be alright. Stay tuned!

Re: Total Knockout


So it’s basically the lovechild of Total Wipeout and It’s a Knockout emoticon

Look forward to seeing exactly what it is though.

Re: Total Knockout


You can see a bit on Kevin Hart's Instagram: [sign in to see URL]

Three-out-of-four of the pictures are of the exact same hammer obstacle. So probably not much variation between episodes at all. Or maybe even not many obstacles at all emoticon

Let's hope he's just taken so many in front of that obstacle because it's the best picture-taking place.. emoticon

Re: Total Knockout


There's a short promo on his Instagram as well:

Looks interesting, although it all looks a little slow-paced. Hopefully there are some more varied rounds, not just a straight obstacle course throughout.

Re: Total Knockout


The few obstacles we've seen look pretty cool (if a bit clunky), but the issue is we've seen a total of three emoticon

If this werre the first of three or four different rounds, it'd be fine, but if this is the whole show, I'm pretty sure I won't be watching emoticon

The defense-mechanisms that the others have look cool, but that's not enough to redeem the show by itself!

A lot of this has a very Splatalot vibe to me emoticon

Re: Total Knockout


Finally a show outside of Japan (/Takeshi’s Castle) is using the volleyball machines. They get a point for that. Otherwise, it looks as if one episode will be enough to see it all emoticon

Re: Total Knockout


Why is this where shows always go wrong? It's pretty obvious to me that variety is what helps keep things ticking over.

Would you want to wake up in the morning and have the same exact layout of day ahead of you every single time? Of course not, (good) surprises are what keep life interesting. All of these shows make me feel like I'm the main character in the Groundhog's Day movie, watching the same thing every single time emoticon

It only costs a fraction more money to add a couple of cheap twists. Even removing the bumps on the Rolling Log or changing the shape of the wobbly platforms is waaaaay better than nothing. Please do it! emoticon

Re: Total Knockout


Whaaa? I just read that you have to be 18 to attend filming. Didn't realize this was an "adult show" emoticon

Re: Total Knockout


That’ll likely be for health and safety, because it’s in a studio. Different rules than just standing outside like with AmericanNW.
