What’s the best chair in gameshows?

By | February 25, 2024

Is it John McEnroe’s chair? Probably not.

Is it the Mastermind Chair? Naah.

Is it the seat from Tout le monde veut prendre sa place? Nah.

It’s David Jensen’s wicked robotic seat from World Wise. Who doesn’t fancy a go on this? 1985, never been bettered. Which is sad really.

Keep an eye on that Made in Maidstone Youtube channel, it’s only been going a few weeks and they’ve been uploading lots of interesting stuff from the Southern/TVS archives and as that’s the region I lived in until I was 11 it’s the best one, Ed Welch station theme and all.

    I was obsessed with this chair at the time, and I think what I particularly like about the whole thing is that Kid makes no reference to it whatsoever.
    I was devastated when Kid left and Emma Freud took over, and everyone just stood on the floor! Actually I remember really hating Emma on it, because when a kid got an observation question wrong she snapped “weren’t you listening?!” at them in a really patronising manner.
