    Would have to be Yugioh which was originally aired in Japan I've seen both Japanese and Englsih versions and prefer the Japanese one tbh, they change the music in the English one and it's not as good :hide:

    It was. Entirely bonkers! We used to watch it en masse after having had a few sweet sherries and this increased the crazy factor exponentially.

    Got to say I really enjoyed Takeshi castle when I was younger, can only remember one person completing the final challenge though, but was funny watching one guy and the general against a group, knowing this will only last a few seconds.
    Iirc, I seem to remember seeing it back on challenge at 5pm on the weekdays.

    For me, recently watched the Israeli series, Beauty and the Baker (lehiyot Ita)) on channel 4 on demand and really enjoyed it and can see why it has been successful.

    Everything what comes originally from America and Great Britain. As I said it many times in another thread before: English is not my native language.
