I won't get into too long of a review, but I want to say that I love this show! It's a good, old game show. As good as "Jeopardy!", and considerably better than that other has-been game show . . . er, I mean "Who Wants To Be A Millionaire" (which I did like in its heyday). I haven't watched the new "Whammy!", but no reason to, IMO, since it's just this with more up-to-date graphics and technology. Love the Whammies, BTW.
