Storyline

You can run, but you cannot hide, The Beast is always coming after you. In THE CHASE, a team of three contestants attempts to amass as much money as possible by answering quick-fire questions in a 60-second round. The money earned will go towards a team bank. Why the urgency? Because The Beast is always lurking, ready to pounce. The Beast - quite simply - is a quiz genius. The job of this intimidating presence is to catch each contestant by answering more questions than his opponents to ensure they are not able to bank their money. It's a role he executes with ruthless efficiency. In the final round, the teammates who have survived the initial chase collectively play against The Beast in an epic David vs. Goliath battle for the entire amount that they have banked.

For US Eyes Only
5 November 2014 | by tjhyb1See all my reviews

A typically, and horribly, OTT version of the more sedate British original. The audience hysterics apart, what really irks me about this inexplicable Challenge import is the way Mark Labbett is constantly referred to as "The Beast". That is simply a nickname given to him by British host Bradley Walsh in the same way Ann Hegarty became "Frosty Knickers" (can't imagine the Yanks going along with that!). His proper title is "The Chaser". The clue is in the title of the show for goodness sake. All well and good for an American audience, but why on Earth buy it back to show to a British audience that has had the benefit of seeing the original? One other annoyance is the fact that most of the questions are understandably American-orientated. Is it fair to expect Mark Labbett to be as knowledgeable about American issues as the American contestants? How would an American Chaser get on being asked questions like "The Oval is the home ground of which county cricket club?" or "Who was Foreign Secretary at the time of the Falklands War?"? Not fair to The Chaser.
