  • It was so entertaining that I just couldn't tear my eyes away from my screen.

    This episode exemplifies just why this show is so enthralling. The witty opening sequence, concerning a supposedly "cursed" ring bestowed onto the host Troy Stevens (played brilliantly by Paul Reubens), sets up a theme that's carried throughout the rest of the show. Even if people don't like the game show format, the episode's compelling to watch just to see Troy battle the curse's effects and the ninjas who're trying to take the ring away from him.

    Not that this is anything like a typical game show anyway! Troy pokes fun at the contestants, whose interesting facts range from being able to fit fists into mouths and enjoying eavesdropping on other people's conversations; whilst the questions include "(what's) the best way of members of 'N Sync to make rust stains go 'Bye, Bye, Bye?'"

    Arguably the biggest highlight, though, is the elimination round. A big deal is made out of the importance of the contestants being able to concentrate and for the audience not to make any noise - only for a marching band to waltz out and start blaring music over their shoulders when the countdown clock begins!

    A fine episode which contained all of the features that made this show so great. If you're looking for a very entertaining half hour then I suggest you look no further!moreless
