I was expecting an evil twist at the end, but it never happened.

What was the point of that game? Perhaps I’m being unfair, as it is a competent facsimile of the TV version. What is the point of the show itself? Never has a gameshow dragged out a string of blind arbitary choices, mathematical formula and false tension, for such a mind-numbing half hour.

Being based on absolute chance, there is nothing the contestant can know to improve their chances. Therefore, instead of this tense atmosphere and furrowed brows, they might as well just reel off the numbers and wrap the show up in about 3 minutes.

Is it just me or is the show a perfect example of chewing gum for the eyes? At least ‘Millionaire’ had questions.
