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 a good game show
31 December 2002 | by (America) – See all my reviews

Roger Moore recently called many reality television shows degrading. He particularly mentioned this show. This was not a good show at all. Game shows are so bad these days. There is no need for this show to be foreboding or dark there is no need for any game show to be foreboding and dark. These days reality television is degrading and insulting. This is a sad show.

Anne Robinson was only a fair game show host. She had no special magic that other excellent game show hosts have. She doesn't seem so genuine in her insults, they looked rehearsed, and they are not intended to be funny, they are intended to only be degrading. I did enjoy the format of the show up to the point they were voted off. That part was so annoying because in a quiz show like this whether you win or not should be determined by how much you know and not who you can stab in the back.

The show was cancelled in the United States. There was a daytime version of the game show but it was taken off quickly. Anne Robinson is quite intelligent in real life as a writer. I am surprised this show did not stick in the United States. It is degrading, insulting and stupid, typical American television. Perhaps the American viewing public is smarter than American television networks predicted with all of these really bad reality shows.
