The fifth (and so far, most recent) incarnation of the classic Mark Goodson Productions' game. Three contestants -- two of them imposters -- each claimed to be the central subject of a story, which host O'Hurley (or sometimes, announcer Burton Richardson) read. The four panelists, one at a time, each questioned the team, addressing them by No. 1, No. 2 or No. 3, in an effort to expose the liars and determine the real person. After the four panelists have completed their questioning, they each vote (separately and without consultation) for whom they believe the real person is; 100 members of the studio audience also voted, with the highest vote-getter receiving the vote. The team was paid $1,000 per incorrect vote, or $5,000 (sometimes $10,000) if they fooled every one. At times, O'Hurley interviewed the real subject, who sometimes demonstrated his skill via video clips or onstage. This fifth version was best known for the one-time appearance of longtime "To Tell the Truth" panelist ... Written by Brian Rathjen <briguy_52732@yahoo.com>

Funny show, should have continued longer
8 February 2006 | by andoldlaceSee all my reviews

I cannot believe this version of the show did not last longer than it did. John O'Hurley was hysterical as the host, sometimes slipping into his "J. Peterman" character from Seinfeld. Brook Burke then went on host Dog Eat Dog. This show seemed to die off about the time of Paula Poundstone's trial. Wish it could have continued. Paula was known for pretending to "recuse herself" from a vote for some funny reason. He odd dress helped her comedic lines. Even without Paula Poundstone, though, the series could have continued. It was fast-paced and had interesting characters a man who created amazingly detailed art on etch-a-sketches, an artist who did body paint.
