Format: DVD
"Game Show Moments Gone Bananas" was originally a series of clip shows, featuring odd and unusual moments from game shows, that aired on VH1 in 2005. It was hosted by Ben Stein in front of a studio audience. This DVD is a collection of all five of those shows. I enjoyed the DVD and recommend it, but that having been said, I'd like to point out the parts I didn't like...

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.

Having seen more than half of these shows when the originally aired and loved the old formats of those classic Game Shows - this 'clip'/'highlight' type show has a lot to offer.

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

This DVD includes five episodes of the show. It's tons of fun. My only criticism is that there is too much chatter from Ben Stein and not enough funny clips.

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 picked this DVD up last night at a Burlington Coat Factory of all places for $2.99. Today being a chilly, boring day I watched the whole thing back to back. I enjoyed seeing Ben Stein as the host, but some of what he said bordered on mumbling and I couldn't understand him. I did enjoy the games he played with the audience members, but the prizes were pathetic. Preparation H Wipes, really? Who would want that? I'd rather have a lame t-shirt or coffee mug than that. Most of the specials contained clips from the same shows and though I laughed out loud a few times, my favorite clips were from The Match Game, The Price is Right and the different incarnations of Family Feud, featuring everyone from the recently deceased Richard Dawson to Richard Karn as the hosts. It was also fun to spot game show regulars like Betty White, Bert Convy and others, however briefly they were shown. I had seen a few of these clips before, but many of them were ones I hadn't seen before and even the ones I had seen were amusing to me and worth seeing again. For the amount I paid for this set and the clips included, I was impressed with what I saw. I love classic game shows, with all of their crazy contestants, risque answers and horny old hosts (I'm looking at you, Richard Dawson and Gene Rayburn). Good stuff.

We've seen the show on GSN before & it is a crack up. Family Fued seems to have many of the funny incidents for this dvd. If u like game shows and the gunny unexpected things that can happen on them this is a perfect sjow for good laughs!

Unfortunately, this DVD shows a lot of British game show garbage and very little of American game show bloopers or craziness. Save your money and borrow it from your local library, if you must watch it.
