Is anybody watching this? Why can't the BBC come up with a decent game show on a Saturday night any more?

I don't know what's worse: The naff games, the annoying commentator, the annoying presenter or the constant camera angle changes and unnecessary slow motion.

It would actually be so much better without the slow motion! First time I've seen it and that's so annoying!

I suppose they have to pad out the "blink and you'll miss it" games some how.

I was watching but three minutes was more than enough. It might just about be watchable without the slow motion but I doubt it.
Has Shane Richie had work done or is he just wearing a lot of make up?

I thought he may have had an eyelift and maybe some fillers. I don't watch Eastenders but saw him recently and thought the same as you.

This game show looks like the prototype for 'The Cube' that ITV rejected.

I saw about 2 minutes of it - and that was only cos I had to see Shane Ritchie's face again. Is the work experience girl doing his make up or was it filmed initially for halloween?

Same here. First time of watching yesterday and the balloons did it for me. How can you mix up red and pink twice? The slow motion makes it completely unwatchable but that's how they've turned 15 minutes of games into an hour long show. Couldn't watch it after the balloon game - very annoying.

I'm sure Shane Richie has had work done on his eyes and he was wearing a lot of make-up too. He's starting to not look like himself. Someone should stop him before he goes too far!

I thought he'd been embalmed.
