Splendid fun to watch and play along with
9 October 2001 | by (Tennessee) – See all my reviews

I always make sure that I never miss this awesome game show. If I'm not at home when it comes on, I tape it to watch when I get home. It is my opinion that it is one of the best and most exciting game shows of all time. It's always fun to try and solve the puzzles and to see the contestants win big cash and prizes. It's very easy to see why this show has lasted for so many years and I hope it stays around for years to come.
