Finally, a Canadian game show that gives away decent cash.
24 October 2007 | by See all my reviews

It's been a long time coming: a Canadian game show that offers a chance to win $10,000 every game. Canadian game shows in the past have been entertaining but frugal in the prize department. It was quite a common occurrence on shows like DEFINITION for a 5 time winner to walk away with the grand prize of a stereo system. Even the more recent game show YOU BET YOUR A$$ only offered a $2500 maximum.

That's not the only appeal to this TV series that airs currently on TV Tropolis. If you love television trivia, you will love to play along with Sam Kalilieh, the nerdy yet genial host. Mr. Kalilieh can be seen on other TV series like HISTORY BITES where he's appeared on more episodes than IMDb credits him for. However, it is on INSIDE THE BOX where Sam shines.

On the show, three contestants vie for the money. They alternate going inside the box, asking the other two clues to narrow down the answer which is either a character, an actor, or a series. The other two, who only have a picture to go on, must say yes or no to their questions. It's a simple and fun formula that works. It's even fun to play with family and friends, especially on long car trips.

This show often wears its maple leaf on its sleeve, showing a bias towards Canadian TV stars and series but it has enough universal appeal that it could catch on in the States or elsewhere.

I wake up early every weekday to watch it. Check it out.
