I used to love Spicks and Specks,but am not so keen on the new series. Adam Hills gave the show a real something special. I am a fan of Egg Heads, QI, Would I lie to You?,etc.All except Egg Heads have no prizes to be won,and even this only has a prize given on very rare occasions.I find these shows,entertaining,enlightening,and FUN!!!
I'm a sucker for Family Feud. The questions aren't difficult at all but I find it enjoyable as there is no right or wrong answer and is all down to the probability of responses from the general public.
I'm not familiar with check out unfortunately. As a kid, I do remember our entire family would watch Sale of the Century. We would have dinner at 6pm, watch the news and then watch Sale of the Century with Tony Barber. It's funny reminiscing. I think they may have tried bring back SOTC but don't think it was successful.
No, I find them highly annoying. Either or both presenters and contestants just annoy me.
One of my favourite movie quotes of all time is from The Heathers:
"If you were happy all the time you wouldn't be human, you'd be a game show presenter."
Enjoy 'Hot Seat Millionaire'. Good to increase 'Trivia' knowledge!
Amazed how dumb some people are on there, though! Wonder what their 'screening process is?
The subjects that are being constantly answered incorrectly, by whatever generation, are in the subjects of.........
Ancient & Modern Histories'.
Obviously many people either didn't study them, when offered, at School.
Or, of latter years', subject not offered at School.
We watch ‘……..Millionaire' every night, so I try & start cooking the dinner before it starts.Then my husband watches the news, (before & after ‘…….Millionaire’) & then he’ll turn it over to ‘Family Feud’ during the the ad breaks of the news, & for the last 5 mins of the show.
We can’t stand Deal or No Deal, & also don't Rockwiz, n’t my in-laws love the show! We used to watch Spicks & Specks. & IQ, but don’t like them any more. In our younger days, a long, long time ago, we watched, ‘…..Century’ & Perfect Match! I didn't think Checkout & The Chaser were quiz shows.
I love Hot Seat and The Chaser. I call out the answers and get quite involved in it. I went to see Hot Seat being filmed. It was heaps of fun but it was a long day, with five shows being filmed in one day. I guess it would be hard for Eddie to be cheerful and making us laugh for all that time, as well.
I think most of the quiz shows here are pretty banal, and some really insult your intelligence. One of the best quiz shows I have ever seen was one called "University Challenge" shown on British TV years ago. That was a real test for anyone who was interested in general knowledge.
