"I've been a MXC fan since 2004, watching every new episode and most of the re-runs. But finally MXC is out on DVD for all to enjoy. Now we can watch Vic, Kenny, Guy Le Douche, Captain Tenneal, Chief Auto Parts, and Skanky whenever we want to! This is Season One of MXC and here is the episode list:
Episode 1) Meat Handlers vs. Cartoon Voice Actors
Games: Sinkers and Floaters, Log Drop, Wall Buggers, and Boulder Dash
Review: This is one of the best episodes in season one not only because of four great games, but also by the guy who can be seen below the "X" on the DVD cover.
Episode 2) Donors vs. Addicts
Games: Mud Butlers, Dash To Death, Rotating Surfboard of Death, Brass Balls, and Pole Riders
Review: This is the first episode with Dash to Death and Surfboard of Death. Dash to Death has always been one of favorite games. Though there still good games, Pole Riders and Mud Butlers aren't my favorites.
Episode 3) Cows vs. Cars
Games: Wall Bangers, Get Hard, Saddle Sores, Swish Bucklers, and Teetering Temple of Crippling Doom
Review: Wall Bangers is good, other than that, it's not the best episode.
Episode 4) Cops vs. Cons
Games: Dope on a Rope, Slippery Slope of Slanted Death, Hand Job, Bunk Buddies, Door Jam, and Yankin' It
Review: At the bottom of season one. There's no Log Drop, Sinkers and Floaters, or Dash to Death.
Episode 5) The Couples Show
Games: Plank Spankers, Surfboard of Death, Irritable Bowl Syndrome, Wall Buggers, and Brass Balls
Review: One of the few episodes with Plank Spankers, and the first episode with Bowl Syndrome. All in all, it's a good episode.
Episode 6) Inventors vs. Former Childhood Stars
Games: Slippery Slope of Slanted Death, Sinkers and Floaters, Door Jam, Le Tour de Grand Prix (Pronounced by Kenny: Prix), and Log Drop
Review: A great episode with Log Drop, Sinkers and Floaters, and Le Tour de Grand Prix.
Episode 7) College Girls
Games: Slippery Slope of Slanted Death, Boulder Dash, Dead-End Zone, Sinkers and Floaters, Ball Bangers, and Log Drop
Review: Three good games, Boulder Dash (one of my favorites), Sinker and Floaters, and Log Drop.
Episode 8) Outdoorsmen vs. Educators
Games: Great Holes of Glory, Boulder Dash, Wall of Maim, Sinkers and Floaters, Pole Riders, and Log Drop
Review: Same as Episode 7, with the addition of Great Holes of Glory.
Episode 9) Circus Workers vs. Travel Industry
Games: Slippery Slope of Slanted Death, Bird Dropping, Foul Balls, Little Man in the Boat, Corn Holders, and Dirty Balls
Review: Lame episode.
Episode 10) Physical Fitness Industry vs. The Music Industry
Games: Turtle Gut Check, Shaft Grabbers, Clear Sphere of Fear, and Jerk and Release
Review: Clear Sphere of Fear is one of the funniest games in the world. People climbing inside a clear sphere and getting rolled down a hill with obstacles.
Episode 11) Fashion vs. Religion
Games: Yank My Dinghy, Buck Off, Eat Shiitake, and Runaway Stump
Review: Eat Shiitake and Runaway Stump are both very good.
Episode 12) Adult Entertainment vs. Home Improvement
Games: Athlete's Feet, Dope on a Rope, Elimination Idol, Dash to Death, and Surfboard of Death
Review: All the games are good except Elimination Idol, a game I've always disliked.
Episode 13) Medical Profession vs. Gambling Industry
Games: Sack Lunch, Boulder Dash, Dead-End Zone, Brass Balls, and Bunk Buddies
Review: Boulder Dash and Brass Balls are excellent as always.

2) Kenny Blankenship's Most Painful Eliminations of the Season

It's a great DVD set of a great show. My recommendations for MXC Season One on DVD, buy it now."
Stupid, asinine and EXTREMEly funny.....

"I still remember the first time I saw this show. I wasn't sure what the heck was going on at first until I realized it was some sort of satire using the old video footage as a backdrop. From then on I was completely hooked. I do agree with another reviewer though who said that the shows get a little old after you've seen them 3-4 times, since you know what's coming and you've already heard the joke that goes with it. I'm still buying the DVD though so I can pull it out every so often once I've had enough time to forget what's coming next, so it will be funny once again. Hopefully the rest of the shows will come to DVD soon. I know they will have at least one buyer.
Meanwhile, how about some NEW episodes?"
See what I did there, Ken?

"I can't say anything more that the other reviews have, but I want to mention that there are some nice bonus features on this set. There's a 45-minute episode of the original "Takeshi's Castle" with subtitles (so you can find out what they were really saying). The cast and producers provide some very funny commentary tracks on 3 episodes, and you also get to see the "demo reel" that sold the show to Spike TV. This is one of the funniest shows on TV, and can be watched over and over without getting boring."
One of the absolute funniest shows of the last five years!

"About 3 years ago, a relative attempted to describe to me a hilarious show that he had seen the night before on The New TNN (now Spike TV). His description went something like, "So there are ALL these Japanese guys doing crazy stunts and hurting themselves for 30 minutes straight. They fall off logs, get crushed by boulders, and slam into walls, and it's all hilariously dubbed into English!" Needless to say, I was sold, and made it a point to watch this "crazy" show ASAP.
Fast forward to 2006, and MXC (Most Extreme Elimination Challenge) is as funny as ever. Obviously, the main appeal of the show is in the outrageous stunts that are performed by the contestants. The incredibly mean-spirited events provide for plenty of physical humor, and the clueless innocence of the contestants just makes it that much funnier.
There's more to MXC than simply physical comedy. The over-the-top production is genuinely funny even without any English dubbing, with plenty of elaborate sets and costumes in every episode. Don't discount the dubbing, though. The writing is filled with hilarious double entendres and bizarre references that will make even the most jaded viewer crack a smile.
MXC will appeal to viewers of most ages (many of the crude jokes will doubtless go over young childrens' heads, but I'd still recommend it to children over the age of 10), so the DVD will make a perfect present for anyone looking for a fix of quirky humor. The extras (including a full episode of the Japanese show) are excellent, as is the value. Enjoy, and spread the word!"
