  • A fun idea with little room

    This show is a fun idea with little room for improvement. Let me first say Howey Mandel (sp) is awesome, and guessing games are fun as well, but here are my grievances which in my mind out weigh the successful components of the show. 1. The commercial breaks: way too many of them, the show doesn't fluidly move along, like that of a Jeopardy or Wheel of Fortune, both successful long running game shows. This is why Millionaire didn't last.
    2. Limited: It's a guessing game, that's all. Complete luck, very little room for any strategy whatsoever.
    3. The Banker: O.K. what bothers me the most about this is the dumb telephone calls. People boo him and whatever and I find this part of the show completely stupid. It's all meant to build up suspense as much as possible as if the commercial breaks didn't drive you crazy enough.

    In conclusion, I really did give this show a chance and I've always been a huge fan of Howey Mandel. I just think it won't last and the concept is boring.
