Filling in Tipping Point‘s slot, here’s another show featuring tipping things – chairs in this case as Andi Peters asks questions of contestants who when they get one wrong have to answer another right before their chair reaches the end of the track, tipping them backwards and out of the game.
On paper this sounds to me like a fun idea – kind of like The Whole 19 Yards but in reverse. We shall see if the reality matches up, we don’t know the exact format details as yet.
I had a question mark as to whether the tipping chairs might be a bit too slapstick for 4pm, well I certainly don’t think that element lives up to its promise – judge for yourself. Endemol’s Remarkable Television game formats like to (correctly) go for a strong visual idea, and the games are (usually) based on a sound basic idea, but a lot of the time they also want me to slap everyone involved for missing open goals. We’ll see how this stands up in due course.
