Yes! It's exactly like Lingo. Wow. It's basically the same exact game just without the "Bingo" board and getting the first letter. Also, it's crazy how long ago that show looks and it was only the early-mid 2000s.
Before I googled it, I thought it was going to be like Slingo, a slot machine/bingo hybrid game that my mom used to play a ton in the late 90s.
Game Show network is a weirdly fun channel to watch. I remember when it launched (or at least the first time I saw it) back in like 2005 or 2006 and watching a ton of it. These days, I'll sometimes turn to it if nothings on... that or Buzzer. Super Market Sweep, Match Game and Card Sharks are some other fun old game shows.
short reboot in the early 2000s? I never really watched that one. I just remember watching the original when I was kid.
Buzzer seems to play Super Market Sweep somewhat often. There was also another game that was similar with the same host (I think?) where it was a mall instead of a super market... more
from school. I feel like I never really watched it outside of that.
As far as I know, it's done pretty well with Drew Carey being the host. He's even looking a bit like Bob these days.
I wonder too what will happen with Wheel of Fortune... but then again, I didn't think they would be able to... more
when I had some time between classes.
Sometimes the new host takes off and it works well. Other times it doesn't really work and the show goes off the air fairly quickly. (Top Gear UK comes to mind... they fired Jeremy Clarkson and he took the other two with him. The new show, well, it's just ... more
I'll never forget the Reliant Robin episode where they kept tumbling it over trying to turn.
I haven't watched since the original hosts left nor have I watched their new show. So The Grand Tour isn't great? It's sort of in the back of my "maybe on a rainy day I'll watch" list.
One of my favorites...
I was talking about Top Gear UK with the new hosts... The Grand Tour is good, but it's hard to keep up with because it's so infrequent. I wouldn't say it's a waste of a rainy day, though.
