A Wonderful Show
3 August 2002 | by (Atlantic City, NJ) – See all my reviews

"Super Password" was the perfect successor to "Password Plus." The show combined the world's best word game with great celebrities and the Late-Great Bert Convy. "Super Password" was the kind of show what made you laugh, and made you think. Bert interaction with the stars, contestants, and crew made the show a joy to watch.

A definite classic!
