Early Chuck Barris Schlock
2 July 2000 | by bosguySee all my reviews

I just had the "privilege" of seeing "The Game Game" on the Game Show network as it's feature game of the week. This piece had to be "featured", because there couldn't possibly be enough shows to make it a regular event.

The premise was, shall we say, so "60's"! One contestant plays against 3 celebrities to come up with their choice of what a psychological panel decides the most fitting answer would be to a scenario. For instance: The question might be, "How would you decide who to vote for in an upcoming election?" The choices would be; A) By your friends; B) By the issues; C) By the candidates; D) By the party

Each contestant would pick his/her answer, and a score from 0-15 would be associated with each, according to what the "psychological board" would decide to be the best answer, based upon the choices given. Our home contestant would decide if his/her score would be higher or lower than the three celebrities playing. If, at the end of the half hour, it was, the contestant would win a cool $100.00.....Just think of it! ONE HUNDRED DOLLARS!

Cammmmaaaaan, I realize a dollar today isn't worth what it was back in 1969, but I do know that a hundred bucks then was molecular compared to what was given away on most game shows (excluding Barris', of course) before and after.

There is no doubt behind the reason for the failure of this show. Psychology was "hip" in the late 60's. People then, as they do now, want to be entertained by watching a game show.

They certainly don't want to be analyzed!
