Re: Fun Gameshows


If one is lucky enough to get picked out of the drum to appear on Winning Streak on RTE, this is what your day may be a little like. I got a small taster of it this time two years ago, when I got to visit the studio in the hallowed grounds of RTE Television Centre, Donnybrook, Dublin 4. Not as a contestant, though.

You seriously surprised me with that! emoticon I looked at the thumbnail and I didn't even read... well... that emoticon

Anyway, today we celebrate another quiz show that didn't exactly excel emoticon Boom!



The thing that was wrong about it was that nothing much changed about it. I guess it would be hard to alter besides the different things to explode but still emoticon

Re: Fun Gameshows


I've never watched a full episode of Boom, but I always liked the concept of it and enjoyed the trailers and pieces that I've seen from the show.

I think it's a tough time for quiz shows on primetime television in general. You had Millionaire which was a huge hit and it was followed by quite a few quiz shows with their unique twists that did quite well, too.

But are there any new primetime quiz shows that catched on with viewers over the last few years? I can't think of any. Some work during daytime TV.

Boom might have worked if it was on TV a couple of years ago.

Re: Fun Gameshows


The greed of producers and audiences when it came to quizzes has finally come back to bite them in the backside. Every channel thought that the only way to succeed was to offer insane amounts of money under a complicated rule set combining insanely high gambling with so-called 'skill' - I want that word banned from TV formats, it's been warped way beyond its original meaning - just because that's what Millionaire did. But Millionaire was perfect in that regard, which resulted in more money with more flashy lights and more rules complicated enough to look different from Millionaire.

This has created the sneeringly dismissive attiude that now exists towards quizzes that don't give away skiploads of cold hard cash every single episode, such as The Chase and Pointless, forcing them into daytime to look more acceptable. And old style 'game' shows, i.e. shows with actual games rather than quizzes get the worst of the sneering because you're making yourself look like a weirdo, beating yourself up on obstacles or playing fun little games of chance instead of answering questions - the misuse of the word 'skill' I mentioned before. This is why people have always looked down their nose on Deal in particular throughout its existence; instead of celebrating it for not discriminating against those without massively obscure knowledge, they decried it as somehow rewarding stupidity which is just utter emoticon . "It's only opening boxes, anyone can do that." they moaned. Exactly! That's why it was so good. But they've gone and ruined that with their sob stories and guessing the first offer and the pointless all-or-nothing gamble of Box 23, which, if they get it wrong, and lose everything renders the entire last 55 minutes a gigantic waste of time. Ironically what should allow a quarter-millionaire to become a half-millionaire actually is prevented from happening by the threat of walking away with zip instead, which in this day and age people literally cannot afford to do.

Want a big money gameshow done right? Check out Winning Streak. Everyone has a little bit of banter with no sob stories, just a nice chat which amounts to 'Who are you? Where are you from? Who are you with? And what are you going to do with the money we're about to throw at you? Wow. Lovely. Enjoy the cash!' And everyone has a fun Saturday evening larking about in a TV studio for 3 hours (recording that is, the actual broadcast runs for 1 hour.)

For quizzes, Pointless. Essentially the same as above, except with fun and interesting quiz questions instead of games of chance, pounds instead of euro, and it's British instead of Irish.

Now if I can get onto either or both of them (having failed at both this year), that'd be just grand, thanks. emoticon

Re: Fun Gameshows


Yeah all the popular shows these days are staged and fak emoticon

Yeah I thought Boom! was good but. not the best. But it beats watching celebrities try to swim across a lake!

A cooking competition I love is...




MASTERCHEF!

This is the season 5 premiere linked to. I like when Gordon gets really mad or their fights! He live in most of your guy's home country: UK, Great Britain and England, United Kingdom, England and Scotland.

Re: Fun Gameshows


If it's the same as the UK version, Child Genius isn't really a gameshow, it's a documentary of this big competition.

Also best Masterchef is Australia. It had the Dalai Lama and one of the original Japanese Iron Chefs as guest judges. You can't attempt to beat that.
