Which should be obvious from the fact that it's nowhere near as insane as real Japanese gameshows.
Takeshi's Castle rules so hard it's sick. I didn't watch the American dub (MXC) for the longest time because of my prejudice against dubbing, but now I'm addicted. It's the best written thing I've ever heard. Every single line is a filthy, filthy joke that's actually funny. I can't believe they get away with it on TV.
Yeah, the show itself is pretty funny, but the dubbing makes it so much better.
Also, I love Iron Chef
. Shame on everyone who posted in this thread without mentioning it.
