Trivia

The origin of the poker term "on tilt" is possibly taken from mechanical pinball machines from the mid-to-late 20th century. Some machines had simple motion sensors. If a player tried to influence the ball's path by shaking or tilting the machine, then "Tilt" would light up on the cabinet, the flippers would stop working, and the player would lose the ball in play.

Goofs

In the final episode of the first season, when Clark is playing in the World Poker Championship, in the hand that he goes out of the tournament, the ESPN pseudo-coverage showed him as "All-in" before he actually declared. See more »

This show has mesmerized me
20 January 2005 | by trauderSee all my reviews

What can you say about this show? Nothing good, except that the levels of terrible this show achieves are so complete it is impossible to look away. Its a train wreck of bad lighting, stilted dialog and ridiculous plot. The narration from our main character comes off as completely lame. When we are not being treated to the inner monologue of, some other character is spouting off "quality" lines such as "You play cards; you're not a card-player." The non-stop barrage of poker jargon, perhaps with some demented eye towards establishing "street cred" with the poker world is so bad it borders on self-parody.

This show is mind-bogglingly bad. But, it is one of those monumental failures that you just can't stop watching. You will sit there, in a dazed stupor, wondering if there were any way the show could possibly be worse, but everything you come up with will invariably make the show better.

The producers of "Tilt" have helpfully placed a warning at the beginning of each airing, presumably to prevent young people from taking up poker. I can think of no better way to ensure that a child will never want to play poker than by having them watch this show.
