Too intellectual for its own good
14 December 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This show was too intellectual for daytime viewers. Now of course, Jeopardy may be argued likewise, but at least Jeopardy gave hints and categories. These crossword puzzles did have themes to it, though, just as actual crossword puzzles do. The episode I watched featured Tippi Heddren and Paul Lynde partnering with non-celebrity guests. ***Spoiler***One puzzle's theme was a news item; the answers included lifeboat and tie, and the answer was The sinking of the Titanic. George Fenneman was host, and while he definitely was likable, his droll wit was a bit too sophisticated. I can see where this show would have fared much better in an early evening time slot. What was funny about this episode was that Tippi, being a blonde, didn't recognize that blondes have more fun.
