Show Summary

Chain Reaction has just come back to television from it's 1980s' airing. The show airs on GSN, and put two teams against each other for a word chain battle. A team of three women face off against a team of three men. Each team is then showed a chain, which features the first and a last word. The teams then take turns saying if they would rather get a letter below the top word, or above the bottom word. Those words then develop into a chain, and which ever team guessed the last word, gets a speed chain, which gives them seven seconds to come up with two good answers to a smaller chain of only four words in length. The point value increases with each round, and the final round allows you to bet up to five hundred dollars at one given time to guess words in the last chain. The team that then ends with the most money goes on to the final, where one team member is covered with a blindfold, and the other two members take turns saying one word at a time that describe the secret word, and the solo player must try to guess that word. The team has a chance to double and even triple their winnings, and go home with even more money.

  • Host Blunder

    3.5
    August 9, 2013, the host of Chain Reaction continued to refer to the Black women contestants as "gals".

    This is offensive as whites historically referred to Black women as gals to degrade and devalue our womanhood. He needs to be educated. If I hear if again I will not continue to watch the show. Great game show otherwise.
  • A game show that makes you think (and not like a genius)

    Have you seen this show? It is so clever and witty. It is funny because after watching this show, my friends and I started playing the game in school. I read on the shows homepage that it is actually a remake from a show in the 80s. I had no idea. It is a good gameshow, different from all of the quiz type game shows, you know??? Anyway, I would recomend this game show to anybody. The only thing that I don't like about this show is that they pick some of the worst teams. They really do, I so am going to apply and show them that there are people who actually use there brain in the world.moreless
  • Okay Chain Reaction is just a decent show to watch when you ain't got nothing else to do.

    Why do I say that in my summary well because this show frustrates me, every time I watch this show I can't never get the chain right and I swear I think they make-up words and put them together because every time I guess one word it is totally wrong and its some other word that I would never ever put with the other word so this show frustrates me but it's pretty decent you can learn new word phrases that you would never thought of on your own so I am glad it is still on so I will continue to watch and frustrate myself.moreless
  • Pretty cool game.

    Two teams have to connect two words and complete the chain. Sometimes its hard, but it's funny to hear the words these people come up with. I like this show. It's an easy way for these people to win cash. Hopefully it will stay on the air this time and GSN will show new episodes eventually. I really enjoy watching this show. The object of the game is really quite simple, and easy for anyone to understand and play along at home even if you aren't actually playing for money. I like the round where they bet money for a letter. Cool game.moreless
  • It's a good show right now I'm about to compare some things from the original to the remake

    9.4
    It's a very good show the GSN remake has very stupid contestants they can't get the most simple things like they say "Word Cop" instead when the answer is "Word Count" What the hell is a Word Cop? another bad thing about the remake is that there are no returning champions the old version had celebrities to accompany the single contestant right now it's three contestants on a team non-celebrity(The celebrity thing isn't much of a problem though).The old version had 8 words in the chains and the new GSN remake has exactly 7 words.Dylan Lane is very boring on the show right now,I never really watched Bill Cullen's version.moreless
