Should be shown more on prime-time BBC ONE

How can this be? The BBC actually producing a quiz show that ISN'T mind-numbing and is actually a pleasure to watch?! Well I was certainly surprised when I watched my first episode of The Weakest Link on BBC TWO. It's a completely new concept for a quiz show, and is a welcome change to the many...

It's excellent

A bit complicated?

Okay, by now everybody MUST have seen this show. If not, it’s on every weekday at 5:15 PM, and occasionally on BBC1 at 8:30 PM, when they play for double money. The main idea behind the show is that there are nine competitors who must answer a series of questions, increasing in value from...

A different type of quiz show

Small amount of prize money on offer

INTRODUCTION ‘The Weakest Link’ has been one of the most successful quiz shows made by the BBC. It has been sold to many countries. It was created to rival the popularity of ITV1’s 'Who Wants To Be A Millionaire'. At first it was shown on BBC2 in the afternoons. It soon began to...

The Weakest Link is a quiz show that i have been watching for a while now yet i`m still baffled why the title of the show does not reflect the way the players play the game.The objective of the game is to answer as many questions correctly whilst earning money in the process. This is done by a...

I love this gameshow. It's great fun to play along at home, by yourself or with friends/family/partners/colleagues. The concept of the game is for a team of nine people, who don't know eachother, to answer general knowledge questions in the time allotted. They try to build up a chain of answers...

Hilarious

Time of show

I bumped into this game show towards the end of last year by chance and since then I find it extremely funny. Have you heard Anne Robinson's malicious comments? Well then I think you should tune to BBC2 The Weakest Link. To put it simple it is about 9 contestants that have to answer questions and...

The Weakest Link is a quiz show where a group of people try to earn as much money as they can for the kitty. After each round they vote off somebody off. This is supposed to be the 'weakest link', or poorest player but things get spiteful and voting is sometimes tit for tat or tactical. Even the...

The Weakest Link is BBC2’s latest late afternoon quiz show presented by Ann Robinson. The idea of the show is that nine contestants have to work together as a team to answer as many general knowledge questions as possible in order to earn as much money as they can. Each question answered...

“So much hatred”

published 27/09/2000

Brings out the worst in people

Too serious

Never did much like Anne Robinson when she was on Points of View and liked her even less when she was on Watchdog - she was always a bit too familiar and chummy. Well, that accusation certainly can't be levelled at her for her performances on The Weakest Link, where her fearsome Evil Ginge...

You are the Weakest Link... The decision to fill in the application form was one of those spur of the moment cider fuelled things, one of those things where you don't think anything will ever come of it so you push it to the back of your mind (along with the past year's lectures, and the...

“Good concept for a gameshow”

Its very different from other gameshows

Anne Robinson

This game show is certainly unique. The aim is to win as much money out of the £10,000 on offer as you can. There are 10 contestants who have to play against each other, but also with each other. The contestants each have to answer a question, if they answer it correctly, they go one ladder up...

Better than millionaire!

Would be useless without Annie

I think you either love or hate the Weakest Link. In case you’ve been living under a stone for the past 8 months The Weakest Link is a mean, cruel quiz show hosted by Anne Robinson. A group are asked questions to get money and at the end of each round the group vote somebody off. They...

Boring, too much hype

Before I write this 'critique' of the TV Game show "The Weakest link" I should in all honesty point out that I hate game shows, so why did I watch this one in the first place?..well I was a teensy wee bit curious as to the appeal of the show. The papers I read were full of references to Ann...

The bitchiness

By admitting this, I feel like one of those people who haven’t got round to buying themselves a mobile: My name is Pennii and I still have analogue cable. But there’s no need to worry, I’m currently looking into On digital and a mate of mates cousin who can chip a card. (only...
