Fun-filled, energetic, funny and cheerful dating game that stopped at least 8 years after it needed to!
12 February 2007 | by See all my reviews

In 1985, Blind Date was born and became hugely popular throughout the entire nation but from the late 90s it was getting dangerously out of date, I personally loved it wondering how "last week's contestants got on", listening to Cilla Black's loud, cheerful, harsh-on-the-ears voice but all things need a stop and BLIND DATE stopped long after it needed to for the sake of its popularity or else, why would there have been people who already had partners, or people who were already engaged or possibly married or people who already knew each other that went on the show?! Everything was going wrong - after over ten years of single boys/girls who wanted a partner desperately! I was very sad when I heard in the New Year of 2003 the show would stop in the near future. It stopped because Cilla Black (born in 1942) was getting on and was getting bored of presenting it. I hoped that she'd reconsider but now, as I am a lot older and wiser, I personally don't blame her! Her own life at that time was tragic and all the rowing, playing away and unsuccessful dates between the contestants were probably getting on her nerves - Well done, Cilla! So, there are many reasons why it was long past its sell-by-date:

1. To start with, the dates turned out the way Cilla Black had intended them to be - romantic, one single man/woman finally meeting the one they love but ever since about 1998/1999/2000 a hell of a lot of people went on that show just to get their 15 minutes of fame and their poor chosen dates were left heartbroken. 2. The dates usually turned out to be nothing but disasters leading to major rows! It looked like a chat show where unhappy people argue. 3. The couples who never got on used to play games on each other and have affairs with other people, who were usually natives. 4. All these things must've been heartbreaking and actually unhealthy for the contestants, let alone Cilla who was in her 60s at the time of "Blind Date"'s permanent end.

I did like sitting in the lounge on a Saturday night with a takeaway and watch this fun-filled, but somewhat stale game show hosted by the legendary Saturday night hostess. Well, nothing lasts forever - it can't last forever, even TV Programs. R.I.P Blind Date!
