Excuse the pun but it's true. This show is indeed an amazing show and probably one of the only decent shows Channel 4 have ever made besides Big Brother, yes Big Brother, call me mad but it's actually not that bad.
The Crystal Maze focuses on a series of five contestants getting accompied by either Richard O Brien or Edward Tudor Pole (Richard hosted for 4 seasons while Edward hosted for the final two) around four zones - Medieval, Aztec, Futuristic, Ocean and Industrial. (Ocean replaced Industrial in series 4 onwards) Their objective is to collect as many crystals as possible while overcoming the perillous and genious tasks that await them inside the crystal maze. Eventually when they've accumulated 60 minuites of time they will be forced to continue onwards to the crystal dome where they will hopefully have enough time to collect even gold and silver tokens in order to win the "fabaroonie" prize. (Otherwise they go home with nothing but a lump of glass that says "I cracked the crystal maze" which generally was false as most were failiures)
This show is no longer showing on Challenge but may return some time soon.
Thanks for reading.
