This show really, really sucks
27 February 2007 | by mltaylorSee all my reviews

This is an unbelievably pathetic attempt to spin a mildly interesting premise into some sort of dumbed-down version of "Who Wants to be a Millionaire". The paralyzing stupidity of the contestants is hard to watch, as is the self-righteous smugness of the kids. Foxworthy basically just stands up there making fun of the adults for taking so long to answer the questions, when we all know that he's the most clueless one in the room. The questions simply aren't believable (what random group of five fifth graders is HONESTLY going to know who the first impeached president was?). Whereas Jeopardy or WWTBAM are fun to play along with, this show moves SO SLOWLY that it's impossible to get any sort of feel for the flow of the game. Avoid this show at all costs...the less we watch, the sooner it will be off the air.

P.S. - What's with the random camera shots of the one little girl laughing hysterically?
