Storyline

The United States' version of "Deal or No Deal" was based on the Netherlands game show that had premiered in 2002. The main objective of the game was identical: Select a case containing a mystery cash amount, then - after being asked to narrow the field of cases by a certain number at various intervals - decide whether to take a cash buyout offered by an unseen "banker" ("Deal") or reject the offer and continue eliminating cases ("No Deal"), knowing he/she could win the grand prize of $1 million ... or far less. Each new game begins with 26 cases, each randomly distributed and held by a sexy model. The contestant chooses one case, which is placed at his/her contestant's podium. The cash amount inside could be as little as 1 cent ($.01) or as much as $1 million. The player then is asked to eliminate six of the remaining cases, calling out the corresponding numbers one at a time. After each number is called, that case is opened, revealing one of the 26 cash prizes; that prize is then ... Written by Brian Rathjen <briguy_52732@yahoo.com>

A nifty idea well done
27 February 2006 | by See all my reviews

Who would have thought that a new premise for a game show was waiting around? "Deal or No Deal" (2005) borrows heavily on the style originated by "Who Wants to be a Millionaire?" (1999), but the game play is unique and fun to watch.

As good as it is, host Howie Mandel makes the show much better. He easily ranks as high as any of the best hosts of shows past in skill and is easily on par with Gene Rayburn, Bob Eubanks, and Richard Dawson for genuine personality. He would be a joy to watch even if the show itself was of lesser quality.

The show is well worth watching but I fear that the viewing public will tire of it quickly. Likely the pace is not frenetic enough for many and those seeking a mental challenge will feel forgotten.
