Started off good, but went downhill
24 September 2016 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

One of the better quiz shows of the 90's, Wipeout was entertaining because it was more than just a straightforward question and answer format. The show was one where you could all join in at home, and some of the answers on the board were quite surprising at times.

The show was better when Paul Daniels was host; he would have a quick chat with the contestants before starting and just got on with it afterwards, and at the appropriate moment, generated a good deal of tension. When Bob Monkhouse took over, the show had gone to daytime, dropped part of the first round, i.e. using two grids instead of three, to make way for more banter with the contestants, which wasn't a good move. And Bob would annoyingly give away the answers, rather than building the tension.

A good game show at the time, but later became victim to 'don't fix what isn't already broke'.
