Oh man! I cannot believe I missed this rare opportunity to see a 94 Dawson Feud episode.

AGIOT? :P

I still get surprised by the 180 a lot of us have done for FF94.  Does absence really make the heart grow fonder?  Even I admit that it wasn't horrible.  Not Richard in his prime, of course, and I do wish they kept the Combs-era set, but it was watchable.
I'm a pacifist, and even I would like to see a little more action.

This version is highly underrated I feel. The budget isn't as bad as people made it out to be either. Richard seemed to be having fun too. Too bad it didn't go longer then a year. BTW, did anyone happen to notice when the show went to break, the background color on the set, would go from blue to red? I don't know if that was done for all the shows, or just for the Halloween one, but it was a neat effect. It reminded me of when Jeopardy's set would do that from 91 to 96 I do believe.

I watched it more for novelty than for interest. Superimposing the fake gameboard ALWAYS pissed me off, and I never cared for the four man team thing, and that all holds true today.

To answer the last two posts, yes, the set always turned to red for Fast Money.  Second, I'm not saying FF94 didn't seem too downsized in places...that's why I can't hold it in *that* high of regards despite calling it decent.  That and what became of Ray Combs as a result of his being sacked...pleasant memories of the "Junior Badseed" rallies from ATGS ;-)

But yeah, despite there being more right to FF94 than I originally thought, you couldn't help but notice the changes.  There were the teams size, the payoffs (yeah, yeah...$1,000,000 You're In The Picture), and that animated superimposed board.  With the latter, would always using the FM board have been THAT worse?  I know Family Fortunes and 100 Mexicanos Dijeron were all-electronic boards, and they do fine.  (yeah, 100MD's is much more state of the art too :-))  

I've mellowed a bit on the set, but still miss the Feud Classic style set.  I wonder if they ever thought of not changing anything, based on that one promo picture of Richard in front of a fascimile Combs-era logo.

There was still $21K to be possibly won in each hour long show, roughly the same potential winnings as the half hour syndie show had the previous two season. Returning champs could still win $14K on each show; $14k/4=$3500 per team member per show, not too much less than the $4K per team member possible from 1992-94. $5250 per team member($7k/4=$1750 per team member in first half) could be won by a family on their first day. Ergo, the downsizing of payouts wasn't that great.

I didn't mean that, I meant as the show would go to each break, the set would flash from blue to red.

That was just on the halloween episode. I've have about 10 FF'94 hour/half hour episodes, and most of them didn't show the backgound lights change from blue to red til someone won the regular game.
