What is Takeshi's Castle?
The Japanese Gameshow all the way from Japan, and that makes you think about the second to last letter of the alphabet. 100 Nimble nutters are lead by the man in the tan General Lee over a series of hard challenges (usually between 6 and 7). The Contestants that fail to complete these challenges set by Count Takeshi to defend his castle, are eliminate form the game. Those that survive are sent into a last charge against Count Takeshi's Emerald Guard in a n attempt to storm the castle. They drive dodgems with little paper targets on them (sometimes sensors) which they must protect. If the paper rings are pentrated by the highly accurate water cannons of the emerald guard (or a laser hits their sensor) they have failed. They must hit Count Takeshi's sensor to win. There have only ever been 7 winners! Great game show on challenge and trouble. In america it is called Extreme endurance challenge.
An example challenege is Knock Knock. There are simply four sets of four doors. Two doors of each are only paper, the others are made of wood. The contestant must run through all the doors without finding a wooden door and injuring themselves (which is rare)
What all reality TV shows wish the could be. General Lee owns all reality tv and game shows.

A Japanese TV game show in which contestants must complete several (usually about 5-6) challenges in order to defeat the enemy, Count Takeshi. Contestants are 'lead' by General Lee.
In the United States, this show is adapted and voiced-over, so as to make it a comical 'sports' show. This adaptation is dubbed "MXC: Most Extreme Elimination Challenge".
