Quite possibly the best game show ever
10 December 2001 | by dru690See all my reviews

Matchgame PM is quite possibly the best game show ever. Gene's informal hosting along with the six panelists refusal to do anything that could be considered serious makes it so fun to watch. It takes you straight back to the seventies with wacky outfits, onstage smoking, huge glasses and words that were only used in that decade. The shows real strength lies in the sentences that the shows producers came up with. While some of them have definative answers and others do not, all are funny yet still give you some chance of matching a member of the panel. If you've never seen Matchgame PM and you get the Gameshow Network I would advise you to give it a try, I'm sure you'll love it.
