This Show Is . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . Boring
28 January 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I have to give it to the makers of this show: they had a pretty good idea. However, once I watched the first episode, they really lost me. They lost me so much, as a matter of fact, that I wished even further that the currently striking writers (as of the date this article is written) would make a deal already. As great as the premise is, and as intriguing as it is in a Phil Donahue sort of way, it's not really a great show.

For one, you don't really feel an emotional connection to the contestant. Because of this, at least I didn't feel any sort of remorse when either the contestant revealed the awful truth, or when he lost the money he would have made.

The show would be a bit more exciting furthermore if the contestant was hooked up to a polygraph test as he or she was being questioned. Of course, polygraphs measure stress, so the results may not be accurate, but it would make for some far more interesting TV. It just seems as though the HAL-like female voice saying, "That answer is (extra long pause) true" is not only not thrilling, but it also feels like a huge waste of time. During this long pause where nothing was said and faces were examined, I felt like turning my TV off and reading a book.

This reality/game show is not as intriguing as "Deal or No Deal" or even "Who Wants To Be A Millionaire". It's also about as disposable as the paltry "Hit Me Baby 1 More Time", with a host that's equally as dull. Unless this show gets a serious makeover, not even its placement after "American Idol" can save its fate.
