Trivia

Careful camerawork kept it from being obvious, but the show's "supermarket" was actually quite small, only about four fully stocked aisles. In an online interview held years later, one former contestant quipped that "Bodega Sweep" would have been a more accurate (albeit less catchy) name for the show. See more »

Fun game show

I used to watch this show when it was on TV. First off, I must say that it was a fun game show. Also, I'm not sure if I've seen every episode. However, I do remember the show very well. Every time I watched it, I had a lot of fun playing along and watching. This made me long to be a contestant. I hope some network brings it back so I can play along and watch again. If that happens, I will be really happy. Before I wrap this up, I'd like to say that I'll always remember this show in my memory forever. Now, in conclusion, if some network ever brings it back, I hope that you catch it one day before it goes off the air for good.
