Storyline

In this hybrid of "Inquizition" and "Survivor," contestants test their trivial mettle as a team and against each other. After each round of play, the team votes out the most expendable member, who instantly gets the biting send off of "You are the Weakest Link. Goodbye." In the end, only one player goes home with any money. Written by ZeroG1

Sorry folks, but this show sucks.
5 October 2002 | by dootussSee all my reviews

I know that most of the people who commented on this version of "The Weakest Link" think it's a great game show, but I disagree. I think the version sucks, and there's one good reason for it...

Anne Robinson!! That's why this version sucks. She's insulting to the contestants, and frankly, she isn't funny at all. She bores me to death on this version. It's just painful to watch. If you're like me, watch the 30 minute version with George Gray (which is a million time BETTER!!!)

This version sucks, and I hate it.
