Storyline

In this hybrid of "Inquizition" and "Survivor," contestants test their trivial mettle as a team and against each other. After each round of play, the team votes out the most expendable member, who instantly gets the biting send off of "You are the Weakest Link. Goodbye." In the end, only one player goes home with any money. Written by ZeroG1

Not my idea of fun

Well, I can understand why this show is so popular. I confess I've gotten exasperated with stupid game-show contestants myself. But I just don't feel that insulting, belittling, and demoralizing people is funny. I also don't like the way this show glorifies society's approval of the practice.

Still, lately, it's becoming more apparent that Ms. Robinson is doing it with tongue in cheek.
