I don't know if you guys are aware of this but at least the first season of the amazingly hilarious TV show known as Most extreme elimination challenge, or MXC is streaming on Amazon Prime video. I remember watching this when it was on TV back in the day, and it is still just as funny. I suggest you watch it if you have prime video.

I can't find it.  Maybe prime is different in Canada.

Kenny and Vic were my heros.

In reply to Streetwiseguy :

I found the 2006 season free for viewing, other seasons are pay per view.

My son came down from his bedroom the other night when I was watching it to ask me what was so funny. He sat down reluctantly to watch some of the show, and 2 minutes later he was laughing hysterically as well. The play by play is just so funny. I have no idea who the writers of the show are, or if it's just the voice actors riffing, but it's just so good. Actually looking back at it it, I'm a little surprised it aired on network TV back in the day.

MXC was appointment viewing for my friends and I back in college. I sat down and watched one episode with the wife when it hit Prime. I was in tears laughing. I think it was the Meat Packers vs Cartoon Voice Actors.

The actual show, Takeshi's Castle, is a Japanese staple that had has been on since the mid-80's. They even made Nintendo Famicom (Japanese NES) games based on it!

That 2nd one with the "Family Trainer" logo on it was compatible with the Japanese version of the Nintendo Power Pad, the Family Trainer. Can you imagine playing a US version of that based on the MXC version on the ol' Power Pad in your living room back in the late 80's? That would have RULED.

DW bought me the first 3 or 4 seasons on DVD.  She's a keeper.

I need to pull them out again.  That show is freaking hilarious.  All American attempts to imitate it are pathetic.

The Japanese equivalent of Dodgeball.  So good.  Indeed Kenny, Indeed.
