Unique, but short-lived game on ABC daytime. Two teams of 5 players, men vs. women, competed. In the main game, one member of the team would be given a secret word and would give a description of the word to the next teammate. Once he/she guessed it correctly, s/he would give the next teammate a description of the word, and so forth. This continued down the line, with 40 seconds given for all 4 "guessers" to name the secret word. The catch was, no "key words" could be duplicated in the various descriptions of the word or else scoring for that secret word would stop. Adding to the difficulty of this task was the fact that the guessers wore headphones that prevented them from hearing how the secret word was described by teammates earlier in the round. Each team had a chance to guess 3 words, and the team with the highest score at the end of the 3 rounds played the bonus round, which was an inverse of the main game. The bonus round was played in 3 rounds. In each round, a team captain ... Written by
The year of the space shuttle blowing up, reaching my own adulthood, trying to sort out the problems of my life and what should be NEW on TV but . . . . . . "Bruce Forsyth's Hot Streak"? Did I really need a juvenile titled gameshow like this in my life? Nevertheless, unemployed, I watched.
The game consisted of two teams, men vs. women, five on each side.
They were put in headphones and all turned away from the first member of each team. Now the first person was told to describe something and couldn't mention it to the second person.
When the second person got the correct guess, then he or she would describe it to the third person, but they couldn't mention any of the main words the first person had used! Now how on earth the fourth person is going to know what the first or second person said is beyond me! Pretty impossible, really.
One I have never forgotten was a woman who had to get the next lady to say 'giggle' and the first woman began by saying 'not a wiggle when you walk, but a'.
At the time, I didn't know what the Big Bopper's song was and apparently neither did this young lady as this "clue" completely threw her away from 'giggle'.
Short-lived, and deservedly so.
Forsyth used to end the show by saying 'if your feeling hot and you want to streak.' It was absolutely creepy to hear him say that.
