Repetitive Game Show Saved Only By It's Hosts
12 December 2002 | by (England) – See all my reviews

The concept of Blankety Blank was pretty monotonous. Each week, contestants were joined by a number of celebrities. The contestants were asked to guess the missing word of a sentence. This was the easy part. They then had to pick a celebrity-who had jotted down his/her own answer a few minutes before-and hope that the celebrity had guessed the same answer.

The only saving grace of the show was the hosts. The original was the charismatic Terry Wogan who provided plenty of entertainment. Then there was the late Les Dawson. Les had been a comic and he too provided the fun on the show.

Then, we came to Lily Savage (for those who don't know, a man dressed as a woman). I can't really take to men in women's clothes and Savage could not compare to Wogan or Dawson. The Lily Savage years were not too bad but not as good as the earlier years.

As stated earlier, it was the hosts that made this show watchable. It certainly wasn't the rubbish prizes on offer. The losers usually walked away with a cheque book and pen and don't even ask about the main prizes-straight from a jumble sale I reckon.
