I had seen the British version of this, and thought it was hilarious. It had this lady named Debbie King dancing about and talking to puppets and a cut-out of Morgan Freeman's head. That was definitely the highlight, was Debbie King having a conversation with Morgan Freeman's head. She even called it Morgan Freeman's head when she greeted it. It was so random, but it was funny.
Just tonight I saw the US version on TBS. While not as random as the British version, it was still pretty funny. The two hosts, Danny and Jerrilee, were pretty funny. The best part was the awkward moments that can only happen on live TV. My favorite parts-
During the game where they had to come up with the right word that followed the word "hard" -
--Danny took a woman caller, who answered with the word "guy." It was wrong, but along the way Danny said, "A Hard Guy is Hard to find." The crew laughs and Danny awkwardly hides behind the board for a bit. Yay sexual innuendos! --Danny also took another caller, this one was a male though. The guy gave the answer "Hard Wood," which was actually one of the correct answers. Jerrilee said something about Danny and they guy having a male bond, Danny made some manly grunting noises, and everyone laughs again at the blatant homosexuality of it all...again. -The hosts growing frustration with the number of people who called in with the answers "hard hat," "hard body," "hard luck," and "hard work," even though the first several times someone said that answer it was wrong.
During the game where they rearrange different sets of letters to make a word.
--The 4 sets of letters given were "Her Od Fat Ho." Danny reads them and laughs. Jerrilee doesn't get it and reads them again, making it sound like "Her old, fat ho," because of her accent. Danny says not to make her read them again, and finally Jerrilee gets it and they all laugh at yet another dirty comment that crept into the show.
The Night Cap game, that ended the show.
The question that had to be answered was "Viewers want to see danny's ____?" and it had been mentioned a couple time throughout the show. Danny is very red when he reads this, because it's obvious what everyone is thinking. Apparently, it's something that viewers have been asking to see so Jerrilee says that the viewers have been saying, "Show us Danny's UH," making a grunting noise. Yay for more sexual awkwardness. Danny remarks that he hopes his parents aren't watching. Jerrilee says he should be proud, and Danny says that his parents "should be proud, they helped make them." Finally Danny takes a caller, Matt, and says to him, "I'm going to let Jerrilee ask you the question, because this is just too weird." The answer was "feet." Apparently someone wanted to see his feet, so he did show them off and Matt won $300 for getting the answer right, but the whole thing was very awkward and the sexual overtones just overshadowed the whole thing.
Overall, I loved it!
