Such a great idea for a show. Like all great ideas it's also simple too. Take a forgein TV show, completely redub the lines into something hilarious and make the shows format and change it enough so that it is wacky. Maybe thats not a great way of describing the show but it'l have to do. MXC has some of the most clever dialogue you will hear (short of "right you are Ken") coupled with what in Japan I can only assume is a serious sports minded show. The contestants in the show take some nasty bumps that would make professional wrestlers wince and IT'S HILARIOUS. You'll have to watch each episode twice, one to catch the injuries and another to hear the commentary of the hosts. When you have characters described as working for "Happy Jihad one way truck rentals" or remarking that illegal cock fighting and bathroom swordplay are not one in the same, it's even funnier.

I hope theres an option for cycling through episodes or a "play all" I can't catch this show on Spike anymore and still love it. Mixing up the episodes will make it fresh since for a while when I was taping them it was starting to lose it's appeal since I would know what was coming next.

This show is near genious in my estimation of it's concept and delivery.  ABC has a show on right now called Wipeout and it's similar, but like anything copied, it's never better then the original.  Unless your Oprah.
