This show was incredibly silly, and I enjoyed every one of the very few episodes that Fox put on. The concept of staging ridiculous games and then encouraging the studio audience to bet is kind of echoed in 'The People's Champions', but not nearly so cleverly.
I guess it just failed to pick up an audience, like 'Orson Beene', which Fox tried to float at the same time. I like the silliness of the games, the overacting of our host/narrator, and the format, which keeps things clipping along.
For the record, my favorite game was 'Lady One Question', where a faux interviewer would ask a real celebrity just ONE question, and after that just hold the microphone up and see how long they'd talk. Brilliant!
Instead, the obnoxious stereotypical Japanese accents just make my head want to explode. How do the guys at Fox get away with this rubbish? If they replaced the faux Japanese "warrior" people with African-American plantation type people and renamed the show "Let Me Axe You Sometin'," the show wouldn't even air!
The folks at Fox need to get lobotomies and bring back quality shows like "Family Guy" instead of this unoriginal nonsense.
