OK, so Objective’s Reflex is an actual Thing That Is Happening, Broadcast reporting (note: behind paywall) that it’s going to be 6 episodes of 45 minutes length for Saturday nights, and the legend Shane Ritchie is going to host it.
FOTB Martyn went and saw the pilot in Mediacity last July and didn’t sound very impressed although it sounds like they have made some changes – now it’s two families of three battling it out for £20,000 for a start. The contestant call on UKGameshows.com suggests the games might be a little more involving although the Broadcast article suggests otherwise.
Commissioning exec Karl Warner says:
“Reflex will be the fastest game show on TV, bringing together state of the art technology and brilliant game design that BBC1 families will hopefully enjoy”
The fastest gameshow on TV, with three or four different tasks over 45 minutes strung out with endless super-slo-mo replays there.
Gut feeling is not good on this one. But you never know.
