User Reviews

Best quiz show ever.
22 March 2004 | by (UK) – See all my reviews

'Millionaire' is by far and away Britain's finest ever game shows. It has provided consistently good entertainment throughout it's years on TV and is gripping and often funny. Chris Tarrant is one of the finest presenters around. He is very funny with his several catchphrases including 'Final answer' and 'Phone a friend'. People often say this is ITV's 'Weakest Link' but unlike that rubbish Tarrant gives encouragement and won't have you for breakfast just for not knowing the answers to a few question. The other major difference is that he won't try to make you look a fool in front of the nation like Anne Robinson. Also this a show which you don't get tired of and has provided some memorable moments unlike 'Link' which is the same every time and is extrememly tedious. But 'Millionaire' rules. Long may it continue.
