Re: Fun Gameshows


I also found a British game show. People hardly know about it, but it's really fun.

I know Dan. Just thought that Codex visited the US just to see it because he liked it! Or did I miss sarcasm again. Very possibly emoticon

Well I liked it.

Re: Fun Gameshows


Anyway about Crystal Maze I watched it, though with no volume ( emoticon ) so let's see if I'm right about the game:

There are four zones represented on the map, each of a different color. These range from industrial to others I can't remember right now and contestants travel through each zone, while playing mental and physical challenges. For winning a challenge a contestant gets a crystal and in the end each crystal counts (kinda like carts on TCT) and adds five seconds total time. If you exceed the time-limit in a room you're locked in and if you accumulate too many fouls you get the automatic lock-in that Dan was talking about. Haven't seen Mumsy/me yet though emoticon

Some comments:

*contestant creates a nail-biter in the gear game, escaping with just a second to spare!

*Host is a bit crazy.

*The ball drop thing looks very frustrating to play.

*Surely having them hurl themselves over those walls at the start is a lawsuit waiting to happen?! emoticon

*The ending seems a bit anti-climatic with there being no defined winner or loser and them just collecting as much money as they can.

Final Words: Never thought I'd say this but this is quite good! The theming of kinda exploring might get boring for me but for now I like it. And for a 90's program it sure had some money put into it from challenges to set-dressing!

Now where have I seen that reviewing format before? emoticon

See, Mumsy's already gone so you can replace her.

It's the first episode and the whole Mumsy thing was just made up during the filming of one game. Watch more episodes and you'll see her.

@Dan: Not anymore.

Re: Fun Gameshows


Aww emoticon Sure I'll get to her thought haha.

Episode 2 view and review (wow, what a rhyme..!):

*last episode had no lock-ins... this one had two!

*Some more obstacle/Wipeout-esque challenges this week, one even over water!

*some returning challenges but a lot of new ones!

*I like the opening bit where they enter the area (climbing over the wall this time).

*Too bad the second lock-in guy didn't watch enough Showdowns to get his target practice!

Final Words: I'm growing addicted to this awesome program so y'all only have 81 more of these reviews to read emoticon Anyway a noteably bad team this week, or maybe last week's was really good. But only four crystals?! Two near the start, two near the end too. Still loving the theming they've gave it!

Re: Fun Gameshows


80 more after this emoticon Here's review #3:

*That girl sure is rubbish at that ball in hole challenge.

*They do like the gear fire challenge.

*Cat and mouse moment in the draw bridge game where the contestant escaped with no time to spare!

*The first time someone lost the gear and fire challenge... you can tell the guy didn't realize how little time he had.

*first wipeout courtesy of the rolling log challenge.

Final Words: Another good episode, and the team did fairly well, well better than last week's at any rate! Love the tunnel system too.

Re: Fun Gameshows


Now you guys probably realize I wasn't joking about watching and reviewing every episode:

*another exciting draw bridge challenge - the contestant nearly fell off!

*I don't really love the princess maze challenge.

*On the subject of mazes, surely they just copied the Honeycomb Maze to make the door maze challenge?!

*Another rubbish ball in hole ( emoticon ) attempt.

*Don't really understand that first clock challenge

Final Words: Possibly my favorite episode: because the effort and some good games. They tie with a record of ten crystals!

Here's all things exciting on episode 5:

*Clock game makes a comeback... yay...

*Still another dramatic moment, resulting in a lock-in, on the drawbridge challenge!

*The association maze challenge has got a mathematical makeover!

*The letter slide challenge is a creative one, this contestant wasn't emoticon

*That one woman in the Crystal Dome who's just standing around clapping emoticon

Final Words: No new challenges make this episode a bit less exciting, but still good over all. I hope that more games are added in later episodes.. emoticon

Episode 6:

*New challenges!: web walk, radiation renovation and mosaic mess!

*Commiserations to the guy in the climbing maze challenge who didn't see the crystal on the ground.

*Poor guy in mosaic mess... I was so confident he would win but he got caught on those last few for a while!

*Great session of rolling log challenge! The way she got stuck in the water, got out right when the timer was over and tried to cross back but tripped and flipped into the water emoticon

*Only 3 people in the Crystal Dome this time.

Final Words: Much better than last week's since they added three (or four if you count the matches one) new games! They didn't work great but they're a promising sign for future episodes emoticon
