Some of ours childhoods have been very entertaining for a reality show from 1986 and 1990 named TAKESHI’S CASTLE, it is a showdown of a set of Japanese contest and was the first telecast by the Tokyo Broadcasting System. The show became popular around the planet. Then on April 2, 2005, they did a live telecast of the show for the ceremony of the TBS’s 50th anniversary.
These show had many narrators and they are as follows:
Also Javed Jaffrey, who was the narrator for India, and was very entertaining.
The show essentially involved 142 participants who were commanded by General Tanito go through different tasks or physical challenges, while going through the hurdles contestants who lost were left out and this is how only some of the contestants make their way to the final showdown. Now for sometimes, there have been some changes in the Ultimate Showdown at first they use to attack the Castel set with short-range water gun assault. Then they preceded carts with a water gun and paper rings, and lasers and light sensitive targets.
After so many years of success, Takeshi’s Castel has advertised its arrival in television screens. And this time we are about to hear a new narrator.
OK, no more Craig Charles.
The series was first televised on 2002 and ran till the start of 2004 and was rebooted for one episode in 2013. This episode was narrated by Dick and Dom presenters of CBBC.
Digital Spy Has authenticated the return of Takeshi’s Castle on Comedy Central. The shooting will be done in Thailand, and again we will see 100 members to take on the obstacles and attempt to storm the Castel.
And the other big prediction is as a narrator we are going to hear, none other than; Jonathan Ross.
As per Louise Holmes, the General Manager and Vice President of Comedy Central UK, Takeshi’s Castel is a gold standard physical game and they are anxiously expecting to get the show aired with its new episodes.
And we have Jonathan Ross, being the comedic brilliance will add a level of pure entertainment to the show which will be enjoyed by both of the original fans and the whole new generation ‘keshi-heads’.
Well, I just wish to see the show with that old taste of mine. And hope to see the same wine in a new bottle, because I know Takeshi’s Castle was wanted by their fans and at last the wait of seeing it again has come to an end.
