Talk About Buzzr
« on: May 09, 2022, 01:07:49 PM »
Or maybe that should say Talk About on Buzzr. It's coming to Buzzr starting with a marathon on May 29th, then to the regular schedule May 30th:

From the promo clips, it looks to be season 1 (which recently turned up on BonusRound.ca).

And the Forbidden Door opens again. 

I do see that TA also was seen on Game TV, like the 90s Newlywed Game.  So there's def. a deal there.

(one that hopefully means Clark $100K and TTD too in the future...)

GameTV has only ever shown season 2 of Talk About, so I don't see a connection.

I'd almost bet BonusRound might have brokered the pickup to begin with

given that lots of the content ends up on Youtube, Iím just happy that a tiny niche-y streaming service is making these pickups anyway, but for your sake I hope it airs when you can se3 it.

Considering that, for it to get on Youtube, someone has to record it, it's a perfectly reasonable sentiment Chief-O has.

I never enjoyed having to be up at 4 in the morning on a Sunday to record Now You See It, but I put the effort in. Made me all the happier when they added a 10:30am weekday slot for it back in November. I recognize that not everyone has a flexible-enough schedule to stay up into the dead of night to catch a show they love (and woe unto the two, maybe three people who actually liked Bzzz!, for that reason).

Well this is weird.. Buzzr posted a clip of Talk About to YouTube and it's from Season 2. All the clips in the promo were from season 1.

Aha.

So the GameTV theory might have some weight?  (S2, as you said, is what they air) 

Just seems suss that the non-Fremantle works aside from Whew! have thus far been things that GameTV aired.  No I am not sure if GameTV somehow has rights to both Talk About seasons, or if Buzzr still must see them to get any season.

Though, FWIW, if BUZZR and GameTV's programming directors have been in cahoots, then we can use pickups on GameTV as a barometer for the likelihood of BUZZR getting that same show down the road. But at the same time, correlation ≠ causation, so do what you will with my opinion.

Not the first time this has happened with Buzzr's promo department. Remember this promo when they launched Whew! last year? I think I remember hearing in this forum that the promo had some clips of episodes that have yet to air on the channel. Why they throw in these "Easter Eggs" that we can't eat is beyond me.

Massive kudos to Buzzr for picking up another non-Fremantle property. First time the show's airing on a US channel in...what, 30 years?

Still, there's one thing I haven't seen discussed - yes, Seasons 1 and 2 are by all indication intact, but where's Celebrity Talk About?
The Game Show Forum: beating the **** out of the competition since 2003.

I'm just a mind wanderer, walking in eternity...

This is a pleasant surprise, indeed. One of the first shows that I got interested in, even as a 4 year old.
