The Game Show FANS 50 Greatest List
« Reply #120 on: August 20, 2006, 11:04:14 PM »
I went through my copy of the EoTVGS 2nd edition and wrote down every show I'd actually seen and had an opinion about, which got me a list of about 70 shows.  Then I tried to remember shows I like(d) that postdate the publication of that EoTVGS edition and added those.  Then I started crossing off shows until I got to 50.  Then, well, I put those 50 in some semblance of order and e-mailed the list to Matt.

And almost immediately, I realized I had forgotten a recent show and had to wedge it in somewhere and eliminate a show from the bottom of the list and resend to Matt (I know, there wasn't a strict 50-show limit, but sometimes I'm too conscientious for my own good).

So, since the contest is over and I obviously don't know anyway (unless it was Rod Roddy taking over full time as announcer), what was the answer?

Um, Rod took over way before 1996.

Yeah my bad.  For some reason I thought 1986 instead of '96.

Sadly, I was never able to see the original, and whenever I tried to watch VH1's edition, my dish went out. I don't know if the gods tried to purposely screw me or if they were just doing me a favor.

You didn't miss much.  The only thing the VH-1 version had going for it was the cute little purple knob each contestant had to twist before they could "whistle in" with the correct answer.

I really just watched that version for Lisa, the hostess.  She can twist my cute little purple knob anytime she wants.

If your knob is purple, put down the Cialis and go see the doctor.  You may have to wear that hospital gown backwards, but only for reasons of gloating.

We don't know that yet. Who knows what surprises the top ten may hold?
HM and TAR in the top ten?!? This is why I always keep my liquor cabinet stocked.

This may be the most deadpan humor seen to date on these boards.[/quote]
Sorry, I tried. :([/quote]No, wait, THAT'S the most--

Chad, dude, "deadpan" isn't an insult. I was appreciating the courage it took to make a joke without even a little hint towards the sarcasm, especially around here.

(Yeah, I typed "dude".)

Bumping this, just in case Matt wants to reminisce over Lisa once more.

Something else you should know: we take a very dim view of bumping around here. If you have something to add, great. Bumping for the sake of bumping: bad idea.

Just saying.
