This season they've tarted up the show with a new set and format. As anybody could predict, the changes got a lot of whines from traditional-minded viewers. That's always the way it works in TV, especially in our little genre.
The first episode with the new format is available on YouTube. You can sample it and decide for yourself. One complaint is accurate: the set is certainly dark. This got to be a stock criticism of almost every new game show after Millionaire made dark sets a thing.
As for the format changes, they wouldn't make much difference to me, even if I watched the show. It's all pure chance, so who cares how they change the luck of the draw?
