A Triumph!
12 July 2001 | by StarGaze-9See all my reviews

I'm a huge fan of the popular video games called "You Don't Know Jack", so when I heard it was being made into a TV show, I was really excited. Now having seen a few episodes, I can honestly say that my expectations have not been met--they have been surpassed!!!

If you never played the games, here's how it breaks down. People play for (fake) cash while a sarcastic host mocks you every chance they get. The show follows a similar tradition but with a lot more irreverance and satire. My only problem with the show is that Troy Stevens (played brilliantly by Paul Reubens) isn't nearly as merciless on the contestants as the video games hosts were. I guess they were worried that it might look like they were ripping of "Weakest Link" even though YDKJ came first!!

Nonetheless, its a great show that I urge everyone to check out before in gets canceled. Sorry, but as much as I love this show, I doubt it will last as there simply doesn't seem to be any room these days for game shows that don't give out millions of dollars.

Which is sad, since YDKJ is WAYYYYYYYYYY better than "Who Wants to be a Millionaire?"

Rating: 5 stars *****
