a good version
12 June 2003 | by See all my reviews

Even thought this wasn't my favorite version of password, you have to respect the fact that three of the all time legends hosted this Allen Ludden, Bill Cullen, and Tom Kennedy. I miss these shows and glad GSN has them to watch again, the legends are dying out and the era of great game shows is gone as well.
