It was painful watching William Shatner captain this doomed ship into the rocks. From the set design to the models holding dollar amounts, it was basically a lame attempt to capitalize on the success of "Deal Or No Deal". It also added elements from "1 Vs. 100" which itself is another lame attempt to piggyback on the success of DOND.
Fortunately this monstrosity was put to sleep after 5 episodes. This trainwreck will be nothing more than a trivia question sometime in the future - perhaps on Jeopardy? "I'll take Lame Game Shows Lasting Less than 6 Episodes" For $1000, Alex..."
