Episode one: “Oh, Blockbusters!”
Episode two: “Oh, Blockbusters.”
Baffling remake of the 80s and 90s daytime classic now in its fifth reincarnation, truly making it the Annie Wilkes of gameshows. At least they’ve upped the money to £20 a question rather than cheekily keeping it a fiver like the last iteration.
This new version features Dara O’Briain (because of course it does), attention seeking sixth-formers and “millennial humour”. Doubtless an ironic handjive as well.
If this brings in a young audience then good for them. Do you know I’m 37 these days? I can’t keep doing this.
