Kirk Fogg is talking to Nick about a cameo role in the upcoming TV movie based on Legends of the Hidden Temple. Which again makes me ask, why bother with some scripted nonsense? If you get Kirk back, just have him host a new season of game show episodes. Legends wasn't a movie or a scripted half-hour. It was a real contest. Why not stage a few more real contests?
TMZ echoes earlier reports by saying that Olmec will also return, probably with new and improved animatronic technology. (The old rock was always a little stiff, so to speak.) Even the names of the teams - green monkeys, red jaguars, etc. - may also feature in the new TV flick.
So if you've got all these elements of the best kid game show ever, why not just restart the best kid game show ever? Nick's upcoming scripted movie sounds like a kid version of Quiz Show, something about a game show instead of just being a game show. Yeah, the old Twenty One was rigged, but you get the idea.
Maybe if the movie does good enough business, we might get some actual game show eps. Political correctness would probably require less scary Temple Guards, but that would be a small price to pay.
