Does anybody here watch MXC? It is so funny you'd have bladder control problems. Not that I know personally...

haha OMG I love that show its so funny. I like the sinkers and floaters game, it's so great when they wipe out, even though it looks painful. Why do the contestants even participate, when all the games seem really really painful? :)

"Most Extreme Elimination Challenge." It was originally called "Takeshi's Castle."

It's one of those 1980's Japanese game shows, where the contestants are required to dress in ridiculous costumes and go through obstacle courses and it all looks humiliating to them, but they're all having a great time... Some American comedy writers have taken the footage, which is already outlandish enough, and then put fictitious comedy voiceovers on it. There are two Japapese men in exagerated, almost comical traditional (Samurai?) wear, and they're the hosts, but in English their names are Vic Romano and Kenny Blankenship.

It is so hard to describe this show because it's so visual. The two hosts narrate what's going on as if it's some really serious sporting event. The narration is FULL of sexual innuendo, double entendre (I hope I spelled that correctly!), and also obscure references that hit you 10 seconds later so that you miss the NEXT several lines because you're cracking up.

Last night, for example, the two teams were the fast food industry vs. aerospace workers. The fast food industry won.

If you like Python, or Mystery Science Theater 3000, I can't imagine you wouldn't be very amused by this show.

The drinking game of course would be to have a shot every time Kenny says something absolutely stupid and Vic responds with a dead serious sports play-by-play voice, "Right you are, Ken." And, in every episode, there's a contestant named "[something] Babaganoush."

It's really hard to describe! You have to check it out. In the U.S. it's on Spike TV (great guilty pleasure channel!) on Thursday nights.

WOW-- I think this is the show my friend Angus gushes over. (I don't have cable TV so I miss out).
These people get hurt badly, don't they? And they get right back up again to do silly stuff and get really hurt again?
It sounds fantastic!
