Episode 13 (18th December)


Season finale episode is supposed to air tomorrow. We have a few surprise games; let's hope we get some stuff that hasn't appeared for a while!

...And possibly a sneak peek of a new season? emoticon

It was pretty different from this! I also think it is different from the trailer being advertised last week. They did not show avalanche and palm tree trip so maybe that was one of the trailers that was created for a different episode that was already shown.

I think this is definitely the last ever episode because there is nothing new over the credits. emoticon

I thought this episode was alright, but I didn't love it all that much. Skittles is refreshing to see but too much cheating going on. They are also way to strict with slip way and this episode felt pretty disconnected from the guards. I prefer an episode that features some games like avalanche and tug of War and stuff. Home run would have been nice to see once again.

I really hope they do a season 2 anyway! Avalanche was hugely underused considering how big it is and I expect to see it back in a new season! We should send them the topic with our game suggestions in it. emoticon

Re: Episode 13 (18th December)


Thanks for steeping up for me and creating the guide. I got a bit busier than usual and they posted the episode later for some reason.

Yeah, that was definitely a trailer for another week. I don't know which other week it could be though, as no episode so far has had Avalanche, Palm Tree Trip and Skittles together? emoticon

Maybe they have more episodes in the can then, but are saving them for a later date? If that's the case though, it seems there won't be many new games emoticon But who knows!

Today was good, but felt a bit like an "introduction" episode. Great to have Skittles back (though the pins are still being pushed over emoticon ) and some more Slip Way to go with it. Just a shame they didn't end things off with a game of Skipping Stones this week.

Once again, I take back what I previously said about Run Way. They DO seemingly randomly apply parentheses then. For the problem with two additions and one multiplication, they put parentheses around the multiplication (which isn't necessary because of order of operations), but for the problem where they had two additions and one division, they put all of the addition in parentheses. It would be fine, except the contestant can't see how the parentheses are applied emoticon That's why I think adding and subtracting is enough for this game!

The most interesting thing this week (IMO) was them playing Show of Hands WITH Skittles, and showing it at a later point in the episode. Hope there's a lot more of this variety to come next season!

The episode felt a bit disconnected, though? It all had a Show of Hands vibe (ultimate insult emoticon). I feel like they used that laughtrack way more than usual today, and it was really getting on my nerves. Was it different than usual, or am I being overly critical of everything?! I definitely think the laughing and such made it feel less connected anyway. Not having much in the castle or having many guard games, as Overdriver said, didn't help either.

I almost do wonder if this was one of the first episodes produced? The General was wearing white, and they had Show of Hands, Bridge Ball, Turtle Hurdle, etc., so I don't think so, but it felt different to me.

Maybe the editor was just phoning it in by this point? emoticon

I had a thought in my head they would have a winner and would save it for the last episode, but that wasn't to be.

Nothing amazing to report back for this particular episode but it's been a very good remake and arguably the best one. Decent amount of games, the right episode length, tracks from the original show, and lots of funny bits.

Let's hope there will be a Series 2, especially with some new games and the negative parts (not that there's many) ironed out.

Oh yeah, I forgot to mention the Enter the Dragon theme playing for the first Knock Knock attempt!

Next season definitely needs at least a couple new games, and I would definitely like to see the show develop a bit more of a personality (original music, special episodes, maybe a foil for the Commander). It sucks that we can't have a Fern in Saudi Arabia emoticon

I don't think this is the last ever episode because when I saw the reporter last month, uploading a video of a Dominoes contestant onto his Instagram account, I commented saying that I want to be on Takeshi's Castle and he replied to me saying, "Next season".

Intriguing! Thanks for sharing and that's definitely reassuring. Just hope it doesn't take ages to arrive emoticon
