Editorial Reviews

For decades, we've watched countless contestants on TV answer trivia, perform stunts, and challenge lady luck. We've jumped for joy when they won and were crushed when they lost. Many a host has mesmerized us with their ear-to-ear grins, humorous banter, and exceedingly charming personalities. The games may have gotten more elaborate, the ideas more inventive, and the stakes higher, but one thing hasn't changed...TV Game Shows are as popular as ever. This feature-length quirky special doesn't just look at the history of TV Game Shows, it celebrates the entire genre in a fun, light-hearted trip down memory lane. Filled with hilarious clips, amusing interviews, and hilarious commentary, it's fast paced, campy, and funny.

I was a bit disappointed in this video, because it spent too much (and shouldn't have given any) time on the gross game shows of today where people eat bugs, pee to "tinkle" a bell, and shows just how far game shows, TV, and the public have sunk in the past 50 years.

The parts about the great game shows, their hosts, and prizes were interesting, and fun to watch.

I ordered this from Biography a couple of years back. Like the other reviewer, I was hoping for more of the past game shows. People like Bill Cullen are barely mentioned, if at all. The more modern shows get to shine, but if you were hoping for a nostalgia trip like I was, you're going to be a bit disappointed. The game show salute done on WNET did a better job, in my opinion.

interesting and factual only until other changes were made later as this is somewhat dated but very informative
