Episode Quotables

Reviews From The Archives

  • Dean's guide - From The Idiotsite:
    • Best Game: The Party Quirks round features a classic Ryan quirk.
    • Worst Game: Sound Effects has had it's day, well and truly.
    • Drew's best bit: His Foreign Film Dub game has it's moments.
    • Greg's best bit: Only Greg could get in as many quips when hosting Lets Make A Date.
    • Wayne's best bit: His Greatest Hits act is sheer genius.
    • Colin's best bit: Seems believable as a dog... maybe a previous life???
    • Ryan's best bit: His foal act was described by a New Zealand TV reviewer as possibly the funniest 30 seconds in the history of television. It's not quite that good but it is special.
    • Credits should have been read by: Ryan, reaches top form in the first show.
    • Should have stayed home and played poker: Greg is miserably under-used in this show.
    • Overall: A slightly disappointing start to the new series by the standard of the 1997 shows. But a few hearty laughs here.
