Title: Game Shows
Run Time: 19 min 07 secs
Host: Luke Rodgers
Panelists: Oktober, Major Monocle, Nabbit
Topic: Game Shows
- The conversation starts of with an intro about the Nickelodeon game show Double Dare. Oktober brings up Action Park’s Cannonball Loop whenever she thinks about physical challenges.
- New entries into the summer game show phase included The Wall and Candy Crush, but Oktober wants to talk about the influence of Press Your Luck on all the modern shows. I mean…all those Whammies!
- Legends of the Hidden Temple gets a mention from the youngest member of the panel (Major Monocle)…which leads Nabbit to start singing the Stick Stickly theme song.
- Luke asks the question, “Is Ninja Warrior a game show?” to which most of the panel responds that it is not. However that leads the conversation down the strange path to the many interesting concepts of Japanese game shows.
- Nabbit is looking for some novelty when it comes to game shows. He doesn’t really like the whole “trivia” vibe of Jeopardy and the like.
- Luke mentions The Match Game (to which Nabbit has a bit of confusion and thinks it’s the Newlywed Game), and Major Monocle comes to the conclusion that The Bachelor is a game show.
- Nabbit rails against the current state of Family Feud. The panel talks about their favorite hosts (Oktober kinda takes the discussion into a strange place with this factoid)
