Here, there and everywhere

Decided to wander around my blogroll to see what's agitating the game show blogosphere.

First, I ran across this excruciatingly detailed chat about gameplay on The Joker's Wild. If you're wondering where the thread came from, you don't know the blogroll very well. Only one forum could chew over as many teensy-weensy details of a really old game show. That would be what's left of what used to be Matt Ottinger's board.

Next, I saw this game show haiku on a GSN-centric blog with attitude. Game show haiku is a little-known literary form. But I like the thought:
BROOKE BURNS LOOKS SO HOT
THE BEAST IS A BIG MONSTER
IN THIS BRIT QUIZ GAME
Brooke is hot, you know. Then I found this charitable prejudgment of Million Second Quiz on another oldies board: "Oh my they think of some ridiculous things to try and put on TV." Too bad they didn't try a remake of The Joker's Wild. At least the oldies guys would have liked it.

Finally, Game Show Newsnet wants an end to the kids week spelling controversy on Jeopardy now that Alex Has Spoken. I never knew Alex had such power.

  1. Aw, c'mon, that's not fair about the chat about three jokers on TJW. I relish those discussions on The Game Show Forum. That is among the reasons why that forum was created. Plus, every single one of the postings on the subject was on-topic. No name-calling of any kind. That should be celebrated; not condemned.

  2. Oh, I'm not comdemning it. I'm just saying that there's only one board on the blogroll with such incredibly detailed dissections of old game shows.

    And to be honest, things do get a little testy at times in the thread. Our old friend Mr. Lemon sees to that. But I'll admit that it's a very polite thread by the board's usual standards.

  3. Your slipping, Casey. Have you seen the latest from "Gameshowluvr87"? He changed his name to Vahan(now it all makes sense) and his latest flames include calling Rob Reiner a child molester.

    You think Sour Fruit man is bad, yeah, he's an ass, but nothing close to Vahan.

  4. Vahan Nisanian is the only guy who ever got a comment deleted from this blog. Yeah, I know about him.
