Crazy Credits

For Season 2's first episode, they faked a Season 1 episode, complete with the original credits, only for the introductory segment to break down, whereupon Season 2 was 'loaded'. For all other Season 2 episodes, the correct credits were used. See more »

I'm stuck on level 1 of Sonic the hedgehog!
11 June 2002 | by (Liverpool, England) – See all my reviews

This was a revolutionary piece of television back in the early 90's, for it was the first major one to feature video games being used for contests. Sure, Fred Savage had done it in 'The Wizard', but that film has so much cheesiness in it you can simply forget about it because Gamesmaster was LIVE and real. The best part's were when you would get an awful contestant and you got to watch them totally fluff up the game they were playing. You had the consultation zone which would have children mostly going up to the great disembodied head himself, Gamesmaster, and giving him video game related queries which would help them progress in their chosen game. You had the game reviews, conducted by the leading computer game magazine reviewers, which were always true to their word. And you had the ladies on nearly every series. Wahey! :D The presenters were brilliant and awful. Dominic Diamond was amazing, Dexter FLetcher was terrible! Mr. Diamond had an amazing little red jacket with a white rose in it, he had that excellent scottish accent, he had innumerable hair styles, he was THE man. Dexter Fletcher on the other hand looked liked he'd walked off the set of Crystal Maze by mistake and he also had the enthusiasm of a potato. And Patrick Moore... god knows what he thought when he agreed to do Gamesmaster as the big floating head, but he did, and he was brilliant! Probably the only successful consistent aspect of the show. The show was dropped way back in 98 or 99 I think, and god knows why. The magazine which came out during the first series is still going, up to it's 120th issue now I think, and i've been in three of them. Respect! If ever you can find a way to see Gamesmaster again, please do. It was a fantastic show with excellent wit from Diamond, and an annoying twit called Fletcher. Please enjoy. :D
