Review of "The
airs Fridays 6pm on Nickelodeon
This is a game show where families compete in mental and physical tests to
get "crystals." If they get enough, they can win $25,000. It's not the usual
type of game show, so it's kind of interesting. The families can choose
which of their brood to do the test, and they can give directions and cheer each
other on. It's more interesting than most game shows, although it's
definitely aimed at families and kids.
The host, Adam Conover, does a great job. He has just the right amount of
enthusiasm and aplomb. Anyone should enjoy this show unless they really
hate game shows. You can watch it with your family.
