Is Total Wipeout not just a rip off of the American show which in turn is a rip off of the excellent Takeshi's Castle?

Heroes made a STRONG return too!!! Really enjoyed the reintroduction to the characters in this new plot and it seems like they're getting rid of a few...

Ooh I am very much enjoying the new Joss Whedon offering Dollhouse. It has a most definate 'Alias' fell to it, which I loved. Keep my fingers crossed for this one.
Thanks for the ride, sir.
