The greatest show on earth !
30 September 1999 | by (Glasgow, Scotland) – See all my reviews

I watched this show from about it's third episode and from then on I've been transfixed. Of course now its gone on to America where it will probably become most famous but it started right here in the UK where its still the best, in the US the questions are far too easy. The worlds greatest game show ever !
