I wish I saw this as a teen when I was baked!

9/10

Ah- the late 70's. I just witnessed this for the first time on the wonderful Game Show Network which continues to unearth forgotten gems like this. A remake of the same show from two earlier decades and now hosted by the slightly sinister Monte Hall; Beat The Clock is basically variations on tag team relays. In this episode Monte was sporting an ill fitting black and brown plaid blazer that looked more 'mod' than disco era. This time the star contestants were Mary Ann Mobley and hubby Gary Collins who were pitted against the great John Astin and Patti Duke Astin. The winnings are distributed amongst the bubbly audience members. The object in these random acts of silly skill games seemed designed by someone who must've been chemically enhanced. The colorful sets and insane synthesizer soundtrack add to the giddy surrealism that remind me of a more subdued Pee Wee's Playhouse.
