Humph!! Well to start with I really think that people either love or hate this game show. I personally love it.
The game show is fairly new and was launched with a lot of great advertising that seemed to do it's job and highlight the main idea of the show. It is shown on channel 2 on weekdays at 5:15. Due to the shows sucess it is also now shown on Tuesdays at 8:25 on channel 1. Anne Robinson presents it and I personally think she makes the show.
There are 10 contestants and each have to answer questions correctly. In each round they have the chance to bank money, this is done by any player when they feel they have enough saved from answering a row of correct answers. Anything that they bank is definitely theirs and is the prize money at the end. At the end of each round they vote out one of the team players for reasons such as getiing too many questions wrong or not banking the money. The team work together until therr are two players left and then they go head to head to win the final prize. One wins it all, one leaves with nothing!
Anne Robinson has made the show what it is. Due to the hype from the press she has suitably fitted into the stereotypical role thats been portrayed of her, but only to make it better. She enjoys making fun of the contestants and she seems to be the winner of every show as no one could possibly say anything that she wouldn't have a better come back for!
Also it appeals to me as a lot of the quesions are quite straight forward so even I can answer them!
Overall a fantastic show that's not for the easily offended!
