I don't disagree, just it's already come up. Somewhere in the 60s if I'm not mistaken.

One man should not have this much power in this game. Luckily I'm not an ordinary man.

60s?! Outrageous. I shall be asking Youtube to remove the videos for being offensive to my nostalgia.

And yeah...Fun House didn't reach the lofty position of the 60s...

Its worth adding in the making of this I realised I've probably seen 1,000 different UK gameshows, so anything in my top 100 is doing very well indeed. I really, really like all these shows.

The state of that shirt.

I do remember wonderwall and trying to beat the contestants.

In terms of Gladiators knock-offs, do you remember Ice Warriors?

I remember Ice Warriors but I don’t think I ever actually watched it. I did watch quite a few episodes of Battledome, another Gladiators knock off from the US. I first found about the show when they were feuding with WCW.

Has that Virtual Reality thing from the early 90s with Craig Charles presenting been on the list yet? That was some top drawer stuff back in the day! :lol:

That vaguely rings a bell but I can't remember anything other than the name of the show, Cyberzone.

Yes I do. It was terrible. Well, bar that one game Zero Degrees which you could never get away with today. Rotating log jumping...ON ICE!

Excellent, adding this to my watchlist now!

I presume the other Craig Charles classic Robot Wars is also on the list? Also that Takeshis Castle is probably not a valid entry as this is about UK gameshows?

Can I ask - where do you get all the footage? From Youtube or do you have loads of VHSs of gameshows?

Its all from YouTube. As I'm reviewing stuff, it falls under fair use.

Takeshi's Castle is not on the list as its no UK yes.

I could have very easily stretched this out to be about international gameshows, but my level of expertise is not the same. There are many, many, many more people more qualified to talk about US gameshows for instance.
