Horrible, just horrible.
4 April 2003 | by HipsterDoofusSee all my reviews

The trouble with this, and just about every other practical joke show, is that the victims are always morons. Just once I'd like to see a show like this with some highly intelligent people for victims. That, coupled with ingenious, elaborate and well done pranks could be very entertaining.

This show, on the other hand, is less interesting than watching paint dry.

On a side note, the only really good practical joke show I can remember was the old "TV Bloopers and Practical Jokes," where the victims were celebrities.
