You ARE the weakest link, goodbye!

1 Dec

Remember that show? It was such a short-lived phenomenon in the US, airing on NBC from April 2001 to July 2002. There was also a syndicated version that ran until May 2003, but no one watched that. (Thanks, Wikipedia!)

It seems it is still big in the UK, where it started. I turned on BBC 1 tonight (one of the few channels that doesn’t have crappy reception) and it was on. Anne Robinson is still the same, but with a slightly lighter and more stylish hair cut. She still throws around the insults and puns like nobody’s business.

Watching the show made me feel like I was back in 2001. Except the questions were very British and the contestants, though British, were no better at answering them than I was. I would have gotten the one about Victoria Stilwell right, though!
