A pointless revival
28 April 2013 | by studioATSee all my reviews

Yes, Catchphrase is a classic game show and yes it's nice to have it back but surely when it's revival was discussed they could have thought of some ways to tweak or dare I say improve the format. The catchphrases are now in 3D - so what?! The tired format was the reason it got cancelled in the first place. That seems to be the way with television at the moment. Take something off, give it a couple of years and then bring it back instead of thinking of something new.

Stephen Mulhern is the only bright spot in the whole revised show. Funny and charming he may be that's not enough to entertain me in this show that feels very familiar.

You're better off watching the repeats of the show from the 80's. At least then you can have added fun looking at the old hair styles and outfits.
