Do you have a favourite game show (apart from Cluedo)

My sister and I used to religiously watch The Price Is Right when I was about six.


Apart from game shows, I love watching Jerry Springer and Judge Judy.

Yes! The Price is Right! I loved that show!

I'm not sure if the American members on this site have heard of this gameshow.

I used to watch Knightmare, it had 8 seasons. It makes Ninja Warrior look like Snakes and Ladders.

Who Wants To Be A Millionaire? Perhaps the best!

I don't have any particular favourite game shows, but I do remember watching Wheel of Fortune, Jeopardy, and The Weakest Link with my mom on a few occasions (I still occasionally jump in and help her with Jeopardy, though, if it's a category I'm familiar with).

I remember when I was younger and was watching The Weakest Link with my mom, I heard the hostess on TV mentioning something about how, if all the players had the same amount of money or something like that, they'd go to "Sudden Death" round. At the time, I did not understand what "Sudden Death" really meant, and I got the idea that it meant the hostess would give each player a gun, and tell them to start shooting as soon as the lights went off. Then my mind would go through one of two scenarios:
A) Everyone except the hostess (holding two smoking guns unseen to the audience) is dead, and she announces, "I win! Ha-ha! Now I can quit this stupid show!"
B) A male contestant is the only one left standing and says, "I win." Then he looks at the hostess (she's dead) and calls her a b*tch.

Yeah...I had a bizarre imagination...

It would be hilarious if it were true though! :lol:

Funny, I watched several episodes of Wheel of Fortune these last couple weeks. I don't usually watch it, but sort of got caught up in it. Sometimes people amaze me how quickly they come up with the answer. But sometimes you have to wonder how dumb some people are too when they can't solve really obvious puzzles.
How do you know what kind of pictures they are if you're such a lay-dee?
