Disgust with Q & A's on show, especially the USS Arizona answer
15 April 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

What a load of hype from Foxworthy! $250K? When? Has anyone EVER seen anyone even answer the bonus question correctly? Not me.

But the show is upbeat, moderately funny and light. So it puts me to sleep often ....and so I continue watching, but today I resolved again to drop it when it really upset me.

I always record it because it is FULL of commercials on repeats on Cable.

Either the people are idiots or the questions are just too difficult for most of the contestants, INCLUDING the "bright" students who have missed approximately 50% of all CHEATS (stupid term - a "help" would be more accurate) this week.

For example:

1. a question asking for the meaning of the "H" in PH factor, one child started a word standing for the "H" in with a "P" and "Potassium" was his answer!

Worst of all so far is the following:

2. In answering a question about the location(which ship) of the signing of Surrender Papers by the Japanese in 1945 "The ARIZONA." was the answer by a classmate!

The USS Arizona is the final resting place for many of the ship's 1177 crewmen who lost their lives on December 7, 1941, at Pearl Harbor in Hawaii! Do they teach kids about this now. I think that by 5Th grade it should be taught, most certainly.

What a disgusting display of ignorance, considering the deaths incurred on that ship! Replace that child or someone please write to the producers. I am going to.

No matter what our 5Th graders have been taught, WWII actually DID occur! They should learn about it instead of mythology like "the Roman God of Hunting". EEK.

If they intend to keep the questions as difficult as they are, get some smarter kids, guys!!! Today the hip "ball and socket" joint was determined NOT to be the "biggest joint" in the human body. The knee joint was the correct answer.

I'm sure there are lawsuits out there from former players and wish I could access them. At least once a week there is an Answer that is absolutely wrong or questionable.

Was this voted the Best Show for Kids recently? Yes! Unbelievable@!
