When I was in high school I used to love game shows like Jeopardy and Press Your Luck. The former was always fun to see if you could keep up with the contestants, and the latter was interesting because it relied on luck as much as skill, but the contestant still had some control over their fate. Fast forward to the 20th century, and we see modern interpretations of these games in such fare as Millionaire and Deal Or No Deal. Neither of these quite matches the skill requirements of their forerunners, as Millionaire basically gives you the answers and Deal Or No Deal basically trades in any notion of skill for a balance between common sense and greed. On the other hand, these game shows exude personality, both in the hosts and contestants.
