Editorial Reviews

MXC - MOST EXTREME ELIMINATION CHALLENGE is a Japanese television show in which contestants are eliminated through a series of outrageous stunts that usually take place above water mud or other liquids. The producers have removed the original audio tracks, replacing them with comic commentary in the spirit of Woody Allen's "What's Up Tiger Lily." Collected here is the complete fourth and fifth seasons bringing together numerous instances of pratfalls daring and hilarity.

This set contains 26 episodes on 4 DVDs-all of the remaining season 3 episodes (including the CSI and Master Debaters shows that were not on Volume 3) and all of season 4. (A fifth season of 13 episodes was produced after these, which will hopefully end up on a future volume 6). I checked the running times of the episodes and all of them are uncut.
This set also includes two full-length episodes of the original "takeshi's castle" with english subtitles-one of which is the infamous "Snow Special" which MXC fans will remember from season 2. (there's a LOT of hilarious stuff in the takeshi's castle version).
This is a great deal, and I highly recommend it for MXC fans. (oh, and if you liked "wipeout!" on abc...this is where they got most of their ideas from.)

"MXC" Volume Four and Five is 526 minutes of some of the most politically incorrect humor ever to air on cable television in the US. "Most Extreme Elimination Challenge" is taken from a truly bizarre Japanese game show called "Takeshi's Castle," dubbed with completely ludicrous dialogue, reformatted and made into a true delight complete with the most unusual color commentary imaginable. Every episode pits two oddball teams (e.g. "Las Vegas vs. Sesame Street" or "Malcontents vs. Baked Goods") against each other in four challenging games with names like "Sinkers and Floaters," "Irritable Bowl Syndrome," "Rotating Surfboard of Death" (one of my personal favorites,) and "Dope on a Rope." These games range from modestly difficult to seemingly impossible. Many of them involve falling off of things, getting extraordinarily dirty, or general humiliation. In other words: it's a perfect recipe for comedy.

I have seen a lot of actual Japanese game shows on television (mostly in Hawaii; my favorite is "Electric Rod Challenge",) and they are true marvels of ingenuity. Add amusing editing, great writing, a lot of lowbrow humor, and commentary from hosts Vic Romano and Kenny Blankenship with unique field reporting by Guy LeDouche and genteel hosting from Captain Tenneal ("Well you're wrong!") and MXC makes for great comedy, far better than even actual Japanese game shows. The set also contains two episodes of "Takeshi's Castle" for those of you who want to get the gist of the source material in its original form, which I highly recommend. It's particularly fun to watch the hosts and compare them to the personalities they acquire when they're dubbed in the US (I've often wonder what the actors think of MXC.)

These are some of the best episodes in the series, and if you're after politically incorrectness and cheap laughs, this show is hard to beat.

Great writing, funny situations, what more do you need to know? I wouldn't watch it with the kids unless you're into explaining a lot of adult humor, but for the grown ups it's fun and funny.

First, I want to state that the first disc has a slow start when it comes to the usual crazy S$%t in MXC. But once you get into the 3rd episode, things get better and better. I was laughing so much at times that I had to pause the disc just so I can savor the moment and not avert my attention and miss out on the next scene. Hands down, this is a must for MXC fans. Oh yeah, and Wipeout Sucks!

If you used to watch MXC on Spike, I highly recommend these DVD's. If you have never seen MXC, I highly recommend these DVD. Some of the funniest stuff I have ever seen.

Another great season of MXC. If you've seen the other seasons, then you know what to expect. A bit more polished from the first season and not as much pain as the second, but overall a good season and a good value.
