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:
