1) There's no scene selection. Your only choices are shows 1, 2, 3, 4 or 5. If there's a particularly funny game show moment you want to see again without having to sit through the entire show, you have to go to that show and fast-forward until you get to it.
2) The re-enactments of Beat The Clock, Family Feud and other game shows with members of the audience was a waste of time that could have been used to show more clips. Besides, I wonder just how legitimate the re-creation of Family Feud with the audience member is, anyway.
3) The biggest pain-in-the-butt on the DVD, by far and away, is the GSN promo at the beginning. You can't skip it, and you can't fast-forward through it. It's only about 45 seconds or so, but I don't need to spend that time watching people talk about how much they love GSN every time I want to watch this. And, adding insult to injury, the last one testimonial is a person saying something to the effect of, "Don't disturb my GSN time. That's MY time." Well, GSN, YOU'RE disturbing MY time by making me watch that stupid promo! Again, it's only 45 seconds or so, but that's MY 45 seconds or so.
These three things, particularly #3, are why I'm only giving this three stars.
There are 8 segments (episodes) on this DVD and it is a collection of the TV Show that originally aired in syndication with host Ben Stein.
Ben does a great dead pan delivery of the intros for some of the funniest moments on Game Shows. From The Dating Game, Password, The Price Is Right, Family Fued, What's My Line, The Newlywed Game and many more. He also hosts small segments of his own version of games from 'Beat The Clock' that have hysterical prizes for the winners. (And they are REAL prizes too!)
Sprinkled throughout are guest appearances by various celebrities (past and present) with the various TOP TEN lists of funniest bloopers, flubs and show flaws.
For the price this DVD is defiantely worth it. There are no notable special features - but you will find yourself laughing outloud. Take this one home with you! 6-8-10
The price is excellent for such a great collection of clips. Note that it is a single DVD, not 2 DVDs as stated in the product description.

I am giving the 5 Stars for what I think my Sister will think of it. She enjoys bloopers and things that are silly, and I think this is going to be in that sort of line. Rad.Published 4 months ago by rad
The game show clips were lots of fun, but the ham-fisted, painful intros and segments with Ben Stiller were just awful--enough to dampen the entire experience of watching.Published 6 months ago by Jerry Barrows-Fitzgerald
