Hahahaha - it's interesting to see someone reviewing crystal maze as they watch it for the first time emoticon . I used to watch them on TV every week when they were new, and I've lost count of how many times I watched the repeats on challenge, so it just kind of occupies a subconscious area of my brain, I think emoticon

As regards the wall clambering and lawsuit waiting to happen - it was the 90s, people were less litigious back then emoticon .

Was that the woman who fell really hard on the rolling beam and Richard went in to see if she was okay? emoticon

Series 4 is the best as you get the Ocean zone. Best zone ever. For one series at least. They ruined it after than by making it all dark and underwater and crap.

Glad to do it, Gra! Also, yeah, not sure having kids play Mushroom Trip would fly these days either. Shame people are so lawsuity now.

No he said something like: I know, I know, I'm a terrible person emoticon

Oh and hearing there'll be more zones is great too! emoticon

Episode 7 time:

*Great idea to use the shovel to get the crystal in the drawbridge challenge!

*clock challenge and truck driving challenge could use a bit of a rest.

*People did really well in the aztec zone!

*That woman who was tired from crawling around the underground maze emoticon

*People really going for it in the Crystal Dome.

Final Words: Good moments make up for no new games this episode. The contestants started out poorly but finished great in the aztec zone and got 8 crystals! emoticon

Episode 8:

*Is it just me or are British gameshow hosts really strict?!

*No one does great in the logic games (moving matches, making the cube, etc.).

*A new game... didn't understand it though!

*The three new games from episode 6 return.

*A great start, followed by a terrible finish.

Final Words: Like last time, a great run through the aztec zone, winning 3 out of 4 games, but that was easily their best bit since they ended badly.

Episode 9:

*Lots of physical challenges this week.

*Best drawbridge challenge yet! What was he doing in there?! emoticon

*Fastest time through the rolling log challenge yet!

*That outer-space challenge is back.

*How did he fail the princess challenge?

Final Words: Another decent episode with funny moments, though I wish they'll introduce a new zone soon emoticon

Re: Fun Gameshows


As we hit double digits, it's time to review the first milestone:

*Have to admit I'm not too fond of the futuristic zone.

*Up until now I hadn't realized it was just one princess in the medieval maze (thought the reflection was a second) emoticon

*People winning the up and over maze easily.

*Not a great way to start off with a lock-in!

*Really like the aztec zone the most nowadays.

Final Words: And average bunch of contestants today with a few slap-in-the-face moments, but overall a rather decent episode.

Re: Fun Gameshows


As series 1 crawls to an end I'll review episode 11:

*They mustv'e filmed the whole of series 1 before showing it... people haven't even learned the trick to the gear fire challenge!

*Exiting the door maze with 40 seconds extra time. What?! emoticon

*Two lock-ins today.

*I felt rather bad for the woman in mosaic mess, must not have been fun to be so close yet so far.

*The contestant being smart on the letter slide challenge... makes a nice change!!

Final Words: They were by far the worst team! Tied with the people from episode 2 for least crystals, but got negative crystals in the Crystal Dome. They did great emoticon

Episode 12 review:

*Love the banter between Richard and Mumsey about being careful with the jewel.

*Just like last time it was played we have a good shot in the eye of the needle challenge!

*LOL when the woman kept hitting the floor and Richard got really annoyed emoticon

*For the first time ever, they won a zone, the aztec zone!

*18 seconds through the rolling log challenge... that's easily a record!

Final Words: Despite there being no new challenges, there were some great moments in this episode, many involving Richard.

Episode 13:

*Great to see Mumsey and her worrying back... really fun theme going on there!

*How did the contestant not get the guaranteed pairs and doubling height questions right though emoticon

*The woman on the rolling log challenge was still on the starting area at the time the guy from last week completed the game!

*The math theme is back in the association maze.

*The door maze challenge had a very crazy person running through it that day..!

Final Words: A new aztec zone game which worked pretty well. The team started off great but dropped off a bit at the end. So brings us to the end of series 1 and it was a really good first series! Now for the second...

Re: Fun Gameshows


As series 2 starts, it's ALL NEW challenges (well except the Crytal Dome and Mumsy's house)!:

*Seems the rolling log challenge has been replaced by the rickety bridge challenge... I like them both so not sure how I feel on that.

*The obstacle course challenge in the aztec zone is a bit strange but good I suppose.

*The first failure at Mumsy's house!

*You've gotta feel bad for the woman who solved the puzzle challenge but could't escape the room in time.

*I like that they've added a gold/silver meter (even if it isn't very reliable)... helps keep track of the amounts!

Final Words: Having pretty much all new games was an amazing surprise and besides the futuristic zone (believe that's gotten even worse) I really like the new challenges (especially the aztec zone. Here's hoping for more good episodes to come emoticon
