Boring new spin on the gameshow genre
28 September 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Noel Edmonds returns as host of this new spin on the tired gameshow genre. Instead of using questions to test a contestants knowledge, the show uses a series of random boxes to test the players luck and nerve.

The programme when watched for the first time seems to be an interesting new idea that has not been done before. Its not until you watch a few of these episodes that you realise how tedious it can be. All that seems to happen is a rather annoying contestant chooses boxes by calling out numbers and seeing which amount is inside. After a week of this you suddenly realise how boring it is compared to other gameshows.

In other gameshows the viewer is able to 'take part' by shouting answers at the TV screen. Here all the viewer can do is to watch and become increasingly bored.

A good idea, maybe for a one off programme. I do not think it will last long though.
