Storyline

In this clone of "The Newlywed Game," two siblings usually a brother and a sister shared secrets about each other. Host Faso asked the team of brothers a series of questions while their sibling was offstage whisked away in the "isochamber;" the questions' topic was determined by pressing a button. Matching answers were worth points; not matching usually led to fights (much to the delight of the audience). The same process was repeated with the team of brothers herded offstage, and Faso asking the girls a series of questions. The team leading at the end of the second round got to run the "Pick-a-Prize Arcade" for bonus prizes. Each sibling got to run the "Arcade" separately, choosing six prizes from a possible 10 he/she believed his/her sibling chose for them; 10 matches won them every prize on stage. While most shows featured brother-sister teams, others featured sibling teams of the same sex and others had youthful stars of NBC shows playing with their real-life brothers or sisters.

What the %#&$ have they given us?!!!
30 July 2003 | by (Marietta, OH) – See all my reviews

As much as I hate to admit it, I was actually dumb enough to watch this heinous show. I was only 6 or 7 at the time, by the way. And if you asked me what I thought of it, I'd pretty much tell you to imagine "The Newlywed Game" on acid. The people who created this show were obviously die-hard fans of "The Newlywed Game", and they must've been smoking something really, really powerful in order to put this BS on the air. And I'll bet poor Chuck Barris (he created "The Newlywed Game", "The Dating Game" & "The Gong Show") was spitting nails when he saw this. The only highlight was watching those little brats argue when one of them mismatched his or her sibling's answer. I just wish Laurie What's-His-Name (AKA the poor man's Greg Brady) would've let them duke it out in the parking lot, and I also believe this is why we have such stupid shows polluting the airwaves today. Oh well, as long as the brainiacs at Fox don't get the rights to and make a remake of this piece of horse manure.
