One of the greatest shows of all time....
15 December 2001 | by gotribe27See all my reviews

If you've never seen 'Password Plus' before, I highly suggest you tune in to watch it. It is a very entertaining show, hosted by Allen Ludden. However, the Ludden ones (79-80) are the only ones I feel are worth watching. Allen Ludden made Password, and he is what made Password Plus great before his death in 1981. The two contestants, each matched up with a celebrity, would play the classic Password game, then try and solve a puzzle (either a person, place, or a thing) using the five passwords previously guessed. Whatever team got to 300 dollars first went on to play 'Alphabetics.' In Alphabetics, ten passwords were arranged alphabetically (for example, A through J). Each word was communicated to the contestant, using one word clues. Each word was worth 100 dollars, and if you got all ten, you got 5,000 dollars. The show has a great, catchy theme song, and terrific entrances with Allen Ludden greeting you with an outstretched arm and inquiring, 'How ya doing', or saying 'I'm glad you're here', or 'Hi, Doll!'. Watch the 1979 version on Game Show Network Monday-Friday at 7:00 p.m., or the 1980 version at 4:00 p.m. Saturdays and Sundays. It'll be well worth your time.
