Good Game Show but showing its age
16 January 2008 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

'Who Wants to be a Millionaire?' was totally revolutionary when it first aired in September 1998. The opportunity for someone to become a millionaire by just answering 15 questions was really exciting.

The show originally aired for roughly 10 consecutive nights but later changed to a Saturday night slot.

For the first few years, it was fresh and good to watch, answering the questions along with the contestants was also quite a challenge but as time went on, the show lost some of its character. Underneath the exterior that promotes the chance to win a £million, is basically a bong-standard quiz show. The idea for the show is great but it could seriously do with a complete overall to last another ten years.

Other quiz shows such as 'Blockbusters' and 'Weakest Link' are more competitive and are more exciting to watch.
