Advantages: Anne Robinson growling like an angry dog, brilliant game show
Disadvantages: She comes across as rude, but she's not.
This programme is brilliant, Anne Robinson is the rudist game show host on telly and the contestants, look scared, well, stiff !!
There are 9 contestants and to start the show they have 3 minutes to each answer a question in turn, after every correct answer they climb up the ladder to the £1000, however if someone gets a question wrong then the link is broken and they start back at £0. Before they are asked a question they can bank what moneys have accumilated, and again start at £0. When the 3 minutes are up, each contestant can vote someone as the weakest link, it can either be bacause they didn't answer a question correctly, or because they lost some of the money when they answered a question incorrectly and didn't bank, or even because they are wasting time. Eventually there are 2 left battling head2head for the winnings which can be anything from £500 to £10,000 (if they are lucky)
Anne Robinson is like an Alsation having a bad hair day, she almost growls, and interregates the contestants like a frustrated old maid, but she shows no emotion and the contestants wince like school children.
Its an entertaining 45 minutes and well worth a watch. It always seems that who you think is the weakest link, goes onto win !!
