Is It Any Good?

The show, which is loosely based on a popular Russian game show, attempts to reflect a sophisticated Monte Carlo casino-like elegance that's reminiscent of James Bond movies by dressing competitors and onlookers in tuxedos and evening gowns and by seating competitors around something that resembles a modern gambling table. Meanwhile, the questions steer away from trivia and require both common sense and strong problem-solving skills.

It has some slow moments, but the questions (and their answers) are very interesting. Sometimes the group dynamics between the contestants are entertaining, too. For folks who like game shows that make you think, this one will definitely fit the bill.
