The King of Talk was back...unfortunately, not for long. Phil's show
focused on current events and featured interviews with celebrities and
newsmakers. Unlike other cable news hosts, Phil didn't yell at and insult
his guests. He conducted himself with class and always gave all of his
guests a fair turn. In the end, Phil's nice-guy style proved unpopular in
an age of increasing nastiness all over television.
As a side note, in Phil's summer-winter run, the show went from having no studio audience to having a very large one, and had two different theme songs.
"Body Language" was a great show, filled with lots of fun and big money ($10,000 wasn't bad in the mid-80s). The excellent Tom Kennedy was at his usual best, just as he was on "Name That Tune" and "Password Plus." The game also showcased the popular stars like Charles Nelson Reilly, Betty White, Jamie Farr, Vicki Lawrence, and even Lucille Ball. All in all, a wonderful show that never got the credit it deserved.
"Super Password" was the perfect successor to "Password Plus." The show
combined the world's best word game with great celebrities and the
Late-Great Bert Convy. "Super Password" was the kind of show what made you
laugh, and made you think. Bert interaction with the stars, contestants,
and crew made the show a joy to watch.
A definite classic!
The people in charge of Game Show Network must be almost as dumb as those
charge at CBS when "Match Game '79" was canceled. What were they
This show is horrible! First, the hostess...who told this girl that she
capable of hosting a game show? She comes across as a cold, uncomfortable
emcee. Her "funny" comments seemed forced and rehearsed. Plus, who could
ever trust a Republican with the name KENNEDY?!
Now, for the show itself...worse than Kennedy! The questions are bad, and the answers are questionable. The concept is original, but still uninteresting. Any contestant who knows anything about competition would vote "Foe" all the way. There is no chance whatsoever for your "friend" to win a dime.
Save your time and watch a decent show. This isn't worth 30 minutes.
