Bruce Forsyth's Hot Streak

Show Summary

Australian game show producer Reg Grundy had two hit shows on NBC (Sale of The Century and Scrabble). This time he tried another network & failed. British personality Bruce Forsyth hosted this game show where communication is important. Two teams (of each sex) consisting of 5 players competed. The object was to try to communicate a subject to each teammate. The 4 remaining players would wear headphones. The captain would describe the word to teammate 1 to guess. If the player is right, teammate 1 pats teammate 2's shoulder to indicate to take off the headphones to guess the word. They had 40 seconds to go down the line. Any duplicate clue word ended the round. Rounds 1 & 2 paid $100 per successful pass/$200 round 3, therefore a total of $1,600 is possible. The team with the most money got to keep it & play the bonus round. If there's a tie, the two captains come out & Bruce shows them a word. The one that caused the tie decides either to play it (hoping all 4 team members would say it without a duplicating clue) or pass it (hoping they would run out of time or goof). The bonus round had the captain give a list of 4 words pertaining to a subject that s/he thinks the teammates would say (they are in headphones). The teammates get their headphones off & Bruce would inform the subject. Each teammate had 5 seconds to guess the 4 words. Each correct guess in part 1 was $200 while part 2 paid $300 (therefore $2,000 is a perfect score). On part 3, the total winnings from parts 1 & 2 are multiplied by 5 (from $1,000-$10,000). However, the teammates have to get all 4 words to win the jackpot! Champions stay on the show for 5 days for a possible $58,000!moreless

  • A wonderful show about love and contemporary police detective work in modern Siberia. 12 out of 37 stars from me.

    I really enjoy my daily fix of bruce smiths warm something... I think the host (John Doe) does a great job dancing to the audience down there in New Zealand. The main character is good in this game show because he always knows how to breathe, i am sick of seeing game shows where the host will suffocate and pee on the contestants.

    I think lap 25 was the best, john doe did a good lap then but i think the real performace was when john doe managed to sort out his filing cabinet.

    When i heard that john doe was diagnosed with cancer!, well needless to say i was hungry and i\'ll give this show a C+ out of 37 stars, a good animated musical dance romantic documentary series.

    Lost is taking a 13 week break from TV, i like the way these people do business, to create the ultimate suspence they\'ve chosen a 21 years.moreless
