Why funny? Well, some of the challenges were downright daft - like trying to get from one side of a pond to another via a set of stepping stones. Some of the stones were fixed in place, while others were merely "floating". The object was to get from one side to the other without falling in. It was just a case of being lucky which ones you stood on! Oh boy, did some of them get a whack when they fell into the water and hit the fixed "stones" face on! Yet it's hilarious! You will find yourself laughing from beginning to end, probably because the contestants are laughing too - even when their number's up!It is also on at 7.30 pm each evening and my 8 year old son absolutely loves the programme. Though it sounds and looks dangerous at times - it obviously can't be and many of the contestants do wear protective headgear. The end result brings you to the doors of....Takeshi's Castle, where you come face to face with the castle guards who usually knock out all the remaining contestants in their little cardboard cars (yes, it's quite tacky too) and the elusive prize of gaining entry into the Castle remains, well, elusive! Even Craig Charles who does the voice-over for the show sounds mystified by what the point of it all is! Yet, who cares? It's fun, silly, crazy .....but never dull for a moment.
So if you find yourself reaching for those anti-depressants then DON'T! Reach for the remote control and switch on to Takeshi's Castle on Challenge TV.
