This show is bush league
19 November 2004 | by (Redwood City, CA) – See all my reviews

I've watched it twice, and both times I say, 'Come on...' about a dozen times.

The problem with this show is that the format is completely arbitrary; the best contestants usually get booted.

A contestant can be eliminated by getting one question wrong, and the questions are inconsistent. For example, in one round, a question was 'name one of two Spielberg films that are in the top 20 grossing movies' while the next question was 'name the top three grossing animated features...' If you get it wrong, you're gone.

And that's the most fair section of the game.

The next round are the 'debates' that are 'judged' by the noted film scholars such as Richard Roundtree, Jason Mewes, and Traci Lords. The debates are designed to advance the contestant the producer chooses to advance. For example, one of the debate topics was why a contestant hates Kevin Smith movies. Like Jason Mewes could be objective about that.

Then comes the obsession round, where the film fanatics show their souvenirs to the judges. Why? What does this have to do with film knowledge? I have no idea.

Also, the host is a tool. He's not good enough for a Carl's Junior commercial, much less a game show. The only appealing thing is the rack on the girl that gives the tickets home. And believe me, you'll see better than those on your walk to work.
