Storyline

The 2000 remake of "Twenty-One" was an attempt to re-create the success of the game show that precipitated the infamous quiz show scandal. The rules of the remake were similar to the classic version, with several new rules. As before, two contestants, one a returning champion, were placed in separate isolation booths, and could hear nothing except when host Pauvich spoke directly to them. A category was announced, with the multiple-questions rated in difficulty from 1 to 11 points (1 being easiest, 11 being the most difficult). Each contestant alternated in answering the questions, choosing how many points they wanted to play for. Correct answers were worth the value of the question; incorrect answers were worth a strike. A new rule allowed a contestant to use a "Second Chance," meaning they could enlist the aid of a friend or relative to help answer a question; however, an incorrect answer earned the contestant two strikes.

The best game show on TV at the present time.
24 April 2000 | by (Oklahoma City, OK) – See all my reviews

Millionaire is a good show, but come on! It is not as good as Twenty One. Why? Because you have two people competing against each other - not one person spending a lot of time contemplating (boring) and staring at Regis. Because occasionally the two contestants get a chance to answer the same question if they pick the same level of difficulty. There is no limit to the money they can win. All the contestants will most likely be chosen - if they miss one night, they carry into the next - not like being one or two out of ten, and the rest go home. But I still think the big edge is the one-on-one competition.
