Too much consumerism

I don't know why so many game shows have to "go there"! I was watching this with my 12 year old thinking it would be some family fun, but there was too much sex all over the place from one of the celeb guests faking an orgasm to the "things you do in bed" category... you can guess where that went. Sigh. The show would be just as much fun without all that crap.

Is It Any Good?

Parents say: (3):
Kids say: Not yet rated

This lighthearted competition offers tons of fun-filled suspense as celebrity guests such as Rosie O'Donnell and Anthony Anderson boast, joke, and attempt to help their partners win some cash. Also, there are lots of humorous mishaps that occur as they frantically try to beat the clock.

Despite some mildly modern twists, such as featuring straps on chairs so people don't move their hands in the winner's circle, fans of the classic show will find themselves loving the game the same way they did years ago. But it's likely that this rendition will recruit a new generation of appreciative viewers.
