Netflix, from December 15th
New series of Sylvester Stallone and Netflix’s very own large-scale obstacle course show where competitors from six countries, this time the US, Spain, France, Italy, China and India compete to tame the four stages of The Beast, a huge obstacle course built in California.
We enjoyed series one up to a point, decent concept, great use of international commentators (I’ll really miss the Brazillian guys) but an end game that felt almost a bit too difficult and a course that got rather more boring the more you watched – for a delivery service that has built its reputation on binge watching it’s quite a difficult show to binge watch.
My understanding is season two was filmed back to back with season one (which may be a misunderstanding), we’re aware there have been a couple of changes to basic set design, what we’re really hoping for is that they mix up the course a bit more. Fingers crossed!
