Re: TV game shows

The earliest one I used to watch was The Golden Shot with Bob Monkhouse. And The Generation Game was a staple of our Saturday night viewing.
3-2-1 with Ted Rogers, Blankety Blank, Celebrity Squares, The Price Is Right, Strike It Lucky.

More recently Deal Or No Deal (until Noel Edmunds became so nauseating I couldn't stand it any longer). Who Wants To Be A Millionaire was superb.

Currently it's Eggheads, and The Chase. Bradley Walsh is an excellent quiz master.

I don't like any 'game shows' as such - but enjoy quizzes such as 'Only Connect, Mastermind, and University Challenge.

Don't mind the chase or pointless, loved call my bluff and does just a minute count that one I rarely miss.

Re: TV game shows

The CHase is my current favourite although as I have mentioned, I am sick of Bradley telling contestants they are good playres when they are obviously not.

Re: TV game shows

I only watch Pointless & that only if nowt else on & sometimes Tipping Point. Not keen on game shows at all.

Years ago I watched What's My Line.

This:




The original series were just brilliant and Richard O'Brien managed the contestants with care and expertise.


Sadly the recent reboot with Ayoade is catastrophic. A real shame

Richard O'Brien is pretty hard to beat at any time IMO he is fabulous in anything he does.

Re: TV game shows

There was also a forerunner to The Crystal Maze which some may remember.

It was called "The Adventure Game" and similarly had contestants being put in challenging rooms solving puzzles. It was part hosted by Moira Stuart who later became a much loved newsreader






The final challenge was always to beat the Vortex across this criss-cross grid
