Still makes "Jeopardy!" look like a walk in the park!
27 October 2009 | by (Los Angeles, California, U.S.A.) – See all my reviews

An episode of this new incarnation of "The Krypton Factor" is available online. I've seen it, and can tell you that, even with the changes made over the years, this show still makes "Jeopardy!" look like a walk in the park by comparison.

I am not British, and never saw the original shows. I do remember seeing--and liking--the 1981 version run on ABC starring Dick Clark. Otherwise, I don't have the same frames of reference as other commentators.

Can this show be improved? Surely yes. "The Kube" will do for an isolation booth, but we don't really need the heart-monitor sound effects to tell us how stressful the Mental Agility round is. The current Assault Course is a meandering mess, totally lacking in drama. If the producers wanted to go back to the original military Assault Course (as depicted in a 1978 issue of "TV Times"), then tweak it to modern tastes, that might work better.

Of course, it could also be worse. The contestants might have to do the Mental Agility round immediately after the Assault Course, without any rest period!
