|That is one...really ugly set|
|Hi there, Gene.|
|The three contestants, probably wondering what they got themselves into.|
The Memory Game: Immediately following each Prediction Game, the contestants were shown the face of a respondent; the first contestant to buzz in attempted to recall which answer was given by that respondent. A correct recollection added 20 points, with a wrong recollection subtracting 20 points. The Memory Game continued like this until the "Time's Up" signal.
After three of these Prediction/Memory rounds were played, the contestant with the highest score won $100 and moved on to the end game, The Jury Game.
The Jury Game - The Jury happened to be comprised of 13 unmarried ladies. Three Yes/No questions were asked, such as "do you sleep in the nude, and the contestant tried to predict how the majority responded. Each correct prediction was worth an additional $100.
|Remind you of any other shows?|
1970 was a rough year for new game show formats, and this one was just plain dry; Gene tried his best to work with what he was given. It's by no means unwatchable, it'd work as Buzzr Lost & Found entry to be checked out once. I just wouldn't anticipate many wanting to watch it more than that one time 😁
|Like they say, not everyone strikes gold every time.|
The Bad: Neither the main game nor the endgame were engaging and the show felt like a chore to watch after the second round.
The Ugly: The set's Mondrian / Partridge Family motif was just hideous. The buzzer was also easily the most grating noise I can recall hearing on a game show.
Overall Grade: D
