RTL Nitro hmmm, that always takes a while to find :D But they're showing Turkey vs. Iceland tonight, so I'll try to remember where it is until February. 

 

Will Takeshi Kitano be involved at all?

No, unfortunately :( Thais bought the rights to it a while ago, so it's completely new cast, just the same format, obstacles and same back story. I actually caught a few episodes on TV here last year, not sure if it's the same that will now be shown in Europe or if they are actually filming completely new series now.

Was this the Takeshi's Castle voiced over by Craig Charles??? 

 

Yep! I heard Jonathan Ross is hosting it this time. 

I can't fucking wait for this though! Loved it when I was younger!

Jonathan Ross hosting is a massive upset for me, he's such a bellend. That said,  Takeshi's Castle was one of the best TV shows from my childhood and I'm glad its back. 

I just wonder if we will have any winners this time?!

There were 8 winners in previous Takeshi Castle :P 

That said, I only remember one.

My favourite was the giant American ex-baseball player who'd just look so out-of-place inbetween all the Japanese people. Sadly, he's been dead for like 2 decades.

Brad Lesley? He died like a few years ago!

Ah I used to love this aswell, nice to hear it's coming back.

In the episodes I watched, and there was quite a few, I don't actually remember ever seeing anyone win xD

The one I remember was one of the early episodes where they still used water guns instead of lasers! And I think it was also the one where Takeshi was substituted by a weird big-head doll of sorts.

EDIT: Found it, haha

Great news this.  I am still waiting to see the new Crystal Maze. Curious to know if anyone here has seen it.  Two of the best game shows. 

i love Richard Ayoade so I'm enjoying it. Can understand why some are put off this new version because of him but if I remember correctly, the older host (also named Richard?) was quite quirky as well.
