Me too it was simple with easy questions and the winner went home with money unlike some game shows on TV.
I can see that it is possible for the jackpot could be won too often. For that reason I doubt it will survive to run to another series
Let's hope it doesn't have another series. This was dire!!! Very simple questions, very silly contestants and a very boring format. I,too, would much rather see repeats of The Chase. Shan't be tuning in to this rubbish again.

I'm bored with it already/ might have known with Ben Shepherd in it.
WHy not bring back Divided with Andrew Castle or that one with Austin Healey, The Fuse.. a couple of years back. They were good quizzes
I used to love watching Divided, that was a great show!

I missed this yesterday but I'm glad I caught it tonight.

I've never seen anything like it! Whoever came up with the idea of that sliding token machine deserves a nobel-prize!!! It's a fantastic invention which combines skill and luck with suspense! I'm amazed no-one has ever thought of something like that before!!!

This is my first time watching, but they're down to the final 2 already? There's still more than half the show (including adverts) to go!

This is beyond bad, truly awful. Even Ben Shephard seems to have the air of a man who knows he's onto a loser.....I'm still finding it quite compulsive in a car crash kinda way

You still have the one person endgame to play where the show and viewers build to a massive orgasm.

What is this about the tokens being flat? They are always going to be flat??? Unless I am being thick....

Worst game show I've ever watched.

There's worse gameshows being mentioned in the thread titled, not surprisingly, "Worst Ever Gameshows". Yes, it's a bit odd that the entire show is based around a giant 2p machine but at least they haven't tried to jazz it up by suspending the contestants over the machine and/or dunking the losers into a swimming pool.

Who thought up this shit? Surely they made a pilot, and the pilot was seen by someone and they just thought "LOL GTFO".

I think when a token is "flat", they mean it hasn't fallen on top of another token. It's flat on the surface of the machine, and thus able to push other tokens into the "win zone", or whatever its called.

The "someone" in question was the person who commissions "entertainment" programmes for ITV, so the fact it was given the go-ahead is not too surprising.

I'm glad they showed the slow-motion replay of the jackpot counter going over the edge, that was absolutely awesome!

If the ratings reflect the comments on here, then it'll be moved to the early hours

It said at the end it was an RDF Television production for ITV so did they make it and pitch it to ITV, BBC etc. or did ITV come up with it and ask them to make it.

However I don't know why it was commissioned and it is rubbish, ITV could bring back Duel or do a spin-off of Who Wants to Be a Millionaire with a lesser jackpot for daytime to replace this rubbish.

Spot on. And if it lands on top of another disc it's 'riding' - seriously, what were they thinking??
