Is It Any Good?

This U.S. adaptation of the popular UK series The Million Pound Cube offers lots of intense moments as couples attempt to complete challenges that are more complicated than they look. Requiring them to do so inside a 15-square-foot talking plexiglass box enhanced with lights and special effects adds to the pressure. There's also lots of ongoing, and often unnecessary, banter between host Dwyane Wade and the contestants, which creates the feeling that the competition is being dragged out longer than necessary. Nonetheless, the host's likable personality and the big prize money involved manage to keep it entertaining. If you like game shows that test the nerve of its players, The Cube has something to offer.
