I wish they would have replaced the "Sucker Punch Wall" with this new obstacle, because they are so similar.

It seemed to me like that obstacle was calibrated really bad - the contestants were landing almost in the pool from momentum alone.

Me loves 'fence slapper'

Impossible and unfair? Absolutely. Best Wipeouts, no question.

Roughly 80+% of the obstacles are absurdly unfair and nearly impossible to navigate without "wiping out."

That's what makes this show so damn good and aptly named!

This week they showed a clip of the big balls with movement (them going up and down) and I thought it would be in this episode, especially since they said "we've taken our obstacles to the next level". Maybe it's in the next few episodes.

Either way if they did make it moving, it will be even harder to get though the big balls and that's tough as it is already. lol

I can't believe these people don't get hurt in some way, but the make great Wipeouts!

Did anyone notice they didn't mention or show that black girl at all? I thought that was odd since she made it past the first level ... ?? Maybe she just wasn't interesting?

I really liked the episode and Jill was looking verrrrry nice. The "barely legal lawyer" jabs were hilarious.

Agreed, they have some of the best one-liners. I wish Jim Henson would do another Talk Soup. There were so many times I had tears in my eyes from laughing when he was on that show.

That's what makes this show so damn good and aptly named!

After watching Tuesday's episode, I thought the same thing! Especially that wall/fence slapper thing. There's like no way to get past that without getting wiped out! Some of the new ones are just ridiculous....like Tuesday's final one where the contestants had to hit the little trampoline and get through the shapes in the big ring. Even if they were able to actually land inthe opening, you wouldnt be able to make it to the landing platform unless you rode it up to the top and jumped out (like one person did). The show is really funny, but I'm not as much a fan of the new wipeout zone either. If someone can get through it in ~3 minutes, then it's definitely not hard enough!!

Lol, actually to be honest I think this is the only show I've acted this crazy for. If they made the show just with the Door Knock to go along with Wipeout I'd be in heaven!!! I'd sooooooooooooooooooo love to work there and see all the contestants full runs. That would be an awesome dream job! Nevermind how much it pays.
