The legend has been revealed
5 October 2004 | by (Sydney, Australia) – See all my reviews

One of Great Britian's long-running popular game shows has indeed proved to be the perfect laughter tonic for anyone.

I've only seen a couple of episodes from the Les Dawson era, but I must admit that, despite the "tacky" prizes (well... they really weren't THAT tacky!) and the catchy/annoying theme song (so I won't bother reciting it), the Brits really did a fantastic job keeping contestants and fellow viewers entertained with funny quirks and in-jokes.

I might as well close my review with this quirk:

'When Brendan Richards finished writing his comment of the show, he said, "If you laugh too much watching this show, you'll literally laugh your BLANK off."'

(Don't forget, the clue is on this large thing made of hypertext and all that other stuff)
