Nice new edition to the Reality/Game show genre
3 March 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Reality Game/Show that professes itself to be the first "live" video game. Except you don't control anything else except yourself. We've seen the concepts in this show in movies and many of the contestants talk about they are gamers or feel like they are in a video game while playing. Its a little simpler than that though. The main skills needed to win on the show are the very skills children use growing up to play games like Tag, Hide and Seek, Scavenger Hunt. Maybe a little Boyscout knowledge on the side will help with reading maps and some of the challenges. However, all the playing fields except one have been in urban environments. Which is why its very entertaining to see how so many contestants make so many errors during the game and completely blow their chances to win. We see basic human emotions, clumsiness, forgetfulness, pride, bad luck and sheer stupidity cause a fresh group of people to lose week after week. I've watched 6 episodes of the Cha$e. True, hidden cameras instead of camera crews following the contestants in the playing field might make this game more plausible. However, I suspect that due to the size of the gaming areas this would not be cost effective for the show. Despite this flaw, the show does a good job of drawing you in and keeping you entertained. From week to week the show has tried to improve on other minor flaws by explaining the rules better to the contestants and modifying some rules. The thing that the show absolutely depends on is for the contestants to relate to the TV audience how they feel, what's happening to them, why they play a certain way. Of course because of the human nature to be social and while trying to juggle a cell phone, a reading map, and avoid hunters all at the same time, most contestants get eliminated. You will be sitting there watching in unbelief, amazement,surprise and sometimes utter disgust at who actually wins each week. Its really an unpredictable treat.
