Kahlo De Jesus Buffington,
As game shows go, this one is entertaining and makes you think. The problems or puzzles to solve are alternately tricky, straightforward and slightly sophomoric but all in all fun to participate in. The host, along with the show, grows on you, as he banters with generally young contestants vying for paltry prize amounts. He remains supportive and congenial through the sarcasm and unlike most game show hosts, can't readily 'mail in' his performance, much of which is improvised or at least appears to be. Think you're bright? Try playing along and see how well you do! The show would benefit from a more diverse group of contestants, e.g., how about more folks over 30 or even 50? And maybe the producers could scrounge up more money for contestants to battle over; a thousand dollars or so per winning pair and nothing for the losing pair is peanuts compared to many other game shows.
