Oldies board reactions

A couple threads about ABC's game show remakes have developed at the oldies board to end all oldies boards.

The Pyramid thread is mostly laudatory, as you would expect for a version that preserves the old Dick Clark format in amber. Maybe the funniest thing in the thread is sour guy - anybody who reads the board will know who I'm talking about - going berserk over Anthony Anderson. Basically, he wants to get the Nuremberg war crimes tribunal back together again for Anderson's turn on the show. Other people on the board are laughing at him (the right response) or trying to reason with him (the hopeless response).

The Match Game thread isn't as full of praise for the new version. In a lively moment, sour guy goes ballistic over Sarah Palin, which prompts another poster to inquire about PMS. Generally the board gives a gentleman's C to Alec and friends, but there are lots of nits and niggles.

There's no thread for the second season of Celebrity Family Feud, of course. Steve Harvey is the board's bĂȘte noire.

  1. Pyramid seems to be firing on all cylinders. Good contestants, good host, decent "celebrities."

    Sunday night's Match Game got too raunchy, ended up turning it off after the Kardashian question. It has the potential, for sure...but they crossed the line between funny and not funny.

    Feud is Feud. Family unfriendly still...worse with "celebrities."
