Stupid, and Pointless!!!!!!!!!!1
31 May 2002 | by (Colorado) – See all my reviews

Ok,I started watching game show network {to give me something to do, besides smoking} and I watched the old match game and loved it which i still do, but i woke up one morning and saw this god awful match game 90. this was really stupid, there was no gene rayburn {god rest his soul} so that was no fun, No Richard Dawson, No Brett, the only one there was charles. and he made it some fun, but the other thing that was stupid, was the dumb lady who brought her {butt Ugly} poodle on the set, and then the intelligent rocket scientist with the sorry looking dragon puppet. But thats the problem with the early 90s is they werent as tacky as the 80s but were not as hip as the late 90s {frankly im a 60s and 70s person!] so people decided well lets make this show again but 90s style, which is to basically use a bad color theme. and then have Jerk faced people, on here so,thats basically a game show in the early 90s, something thats half tacky as the 80s and really stupid. well frankly i think the Match Game From the 70s was better. and even though some would debate me that there decorating was tacky i say it was better than this awful excuse for a game show. And Richard Dawson if you read this { I highly doubt it} You were the best of the bunch.
