Storyline

You can run, but you cannot hide, The Beast is always coming after you. In THE CHASE, a team of three contestants attempts to amass as much money as possible by answering quick-fire questions in a 60-second round. The money earned will go towards a team bank. Why the urgency? Because The Beast is always lurking, ready to pounce. The Beast - quite simply - is a quiz genius. The job of this intimidating presence is to catch each contestant by answering more questions than his opponents to ensure they are not able to bank their money. It's a role he executes with ruthless efficiency. In the final round, the teammates who have survived the initial chase collectively play against The Beast in an epic David vs. Goliath battle for the entire amount that they have banked.

The chase is on across the pond
11 April 2015 | by studioATSee all my reviews

I'm a little torn when writing this review.

On the one hand Mark was always my favourite chaser on the UK edition of the show so to see him in every episode of this US version is a plus.

However,what can't be denied is that the show has been made larger than life and annoying for US audiences. There is a simplicity to the UK version that at 5pm sort of works. I also missed Bradley Walsh giggling at every silly question that comes up.

So, there we go. The Chase hits the USA and as ever when this happens, things get lost in translation. Ironically this version often airs at the same time as the British version, so if Mark's your favourite and he's not on the UK one, you don't have to look far to find him.
