Completely disgusting premise. I hate this trash with a passion.
16 March 2005 | by (The Imperial Earth State) – See all my reviews

One of the commenters has stated that this show is approaching its 60th year. This should tell you a lot about the cruelty of human nature and how so many of us get a kick out of seeing someone degraded on national TV. I'm aware that the "marks" have to sign a release form consenting to the airing of the segment in which they appear, but this doesn't tell me that these people are good-natured sports. It simply re-enforces the fact that some people will do ANYTHING to be on national TV.

I have as much of a sense of humor as anyone, but it doesn't extend to watching people being made to look like idiots, and it never will. If this show or anything like it comes on TV and I can change the channel, I will. Otherwise I'll leave the room.

How funny would it be if one of the "marks" became so stressed-out that he had a fatal heart attack on camera? I think the crew would just keep filming and hope they could get the consent of the family. I can't see how anyone except someone with a sadistic streak a mile wide could honestly enjoy watching people be pranked and made fools of. Personally, I believe that Allen Funt was a cruel individual- and so is anyone who enjoys this garbage.
