The Crystal Maze! Back in the 90s there was nothing like this game show and when you threw in Richard O'Brien you knew you were in for a good time. Greg swears that they auditioned to find the STUPIDEST contestants ever because sometimes they really are as thick as two short planks. That's OK, because Richard talks to us about them in a super patronizing way, and randomly plays the harmonica. If you watch - look out for the one with the Mensa Member who couldn't solve a puzzle Those comments were CLASSIC!
Basically the game is a huge warehouse split into 4 zones with a bunch of puzzle games in rooms - very much like modern day escape rooms - and yes some of them get locked in. One of the best things about it is that it still works very much today when you watch. Yes the hairstyles etc are a bit dated, but because of how the game is set up there is nothing there that dates it. Some of the exact puzzles were IN the escape room Susan and I did with Greg, just last year.
If you want something a bit different, that you don't really have to pay attention too, and you fancy yelling at the telly (because you will), then check it out. Especially as ALL the episodes are uploaded to YouTube by several people and noone cares enough about the show to get them pulled down!
