On my mind [Oct. 11th, 2003|06:16 pm]

Has it really been this long since I've written in here?

So the sixth season is 5 weeks old, and people are already complaining about the format. For those who don't know yet, the game structure has changed yet again, reverting to the classic format of best 2 of 3. Each game is worth $1,000 and the first contestant to win two games plays the bonus round that began in season 5. So in other words, a match could stop right in the middle of a game when the show ends.

So what's with all the complaining?

Anyway, people at the H2 message boards on the official site are peeved with the changes for this season, asking the producers to revert to the original format or they'll stop watching the show altogether. What do they mean by "original format"? These are the same people that complained about last year's bonus round! I say give the producers a break, they're only trying their best to make the show great. And, people should watch for the stars and bluffs as well as the great moments, not to find points to rip the show apart.
I, for one, like the new format this year. When a match is stopped in the middle of a game, it makes for a great cliffhanger for the next day's show, making me wonder what will happen to the contestants next.

Chill out, pessimists! You don't know what you're missing!

New personality quiz [May. 22nd, 2003|06:47 pm]

I made a new quiz about which season of H2 best fits your personality. I tried it on myself and got season 5. Look below.

Season 5
You belong in Season 5. Sure, Whoopi quit and
Henry Winkler took over to oversee the 2002-
2003 season, but the crew never gave up, which
says much about your eagerness and dedicated
personality. Charlie Brown's "money
angels" and Jenny Thomas winning the T of
C are among many of the fantastic moments that
took place this season

What season of Hollywood Squares do you belong in?

I have a dream... [May. 18th, 2003|12:03 pm]

There's a show on TV here in Canada that lets people live out their wildest dreams called "Thrill of a Lifetime". Yesterday, I submitted my thrill, and it's like this...

My thrill is to fly to Los Angeles and spend a day on the H2 set. How cool would that be? I would take in a taping of the show, go on the set, meet the stars (and maybe have lunch with them during a taping break), and get pictures and autographs. It would be a dream come true to do that, it would possibly happen during tapings for Season 6.

For now, I will just wait by the phone to see if they'll call me. What an experience it would be if my dream actually came true!

It has been a little over 24 hours since this year's Emmys started. I'm sorry if I feel this way, but I do--Squares should have got Best Game Show, but instead it went to Jeopardy. I wonder how those voters saw past one of the best seasons ever in this current version, but I think they're blind. In the eyes of H2 fans like me, I'd say that we wuz robbed this time around Well, there's always next year...I hope.

Nerve time! [May. 15th, 2003|02:03 pm]

Okay, I admit I'm really nervous right now! It's the day before the Daytime Emmys, which will be held tomorrow night in New York. Why am I nervous? It's because that Squares has two more shots left at scoring trophies and they're big ones--Best Game Show and Best Game Show Host.
You've got to agree that this season has been the best one. Henry and Michael have done a fantastic job of turning the show around, and there's been some really great moments like Charlie Brown swimming in money and Jenny Thomas after winning the 2003 T of C. On top of that, no incarnation of the show has won the Best Game Show award since 1980. This has GOT to be the year that they take the big one, I know it...I have a gut feeling inside of me.
Tom's got an excellent chance of winning his second award for Best Game Show Host, I still remember how stunned he was three years ago when he won it for the first time. It was an exciting moment for me because I knew he deserved it, he pulled off the biggest upset the category has ever seen (he tied Bob Barker and beat Regis for it). This year is no exception that he deserves it, he's been through a lot this season and has done it well with a lot of class and good humor...and a little good luck from the ladies of "The View"!

I guess we'll all have to watch tomorrow night and see what happens.
