Online Pick of the Week: Super Password (6/5)

The pick this week comes from Super Password; an Alphabetics round worth $50,000. The clues are given by Sally Struthers, and it was uploaded by a fellow game show buddy of mine, gameshowluvr86.

One of the reasons why I think the majority of classic game shows get so much respect is the fact that there was indeed tension and pressure, but the pressure was handled the way it should have been. As evidently noted by the quivering in Sally’s tone of voice, the tension is obviously here. But any tension caused is from the element of the game and the game only. No overdramatics of any kind; no early NBC Deal or No Deal-esque commercial tosses, like for instance, “Will she get the last letter? Find out after this!” No extra long reveals. Just good old-fashioned game playing done right.

And of course there’s the hilarity, which makes it one of my favorite wins on a game show ever. Hair flies everywhere and the contestant shrieks several times “I LOVE YOU!” Glad to see Sally survived all that.

Great fun indeed. This big win from Super Password, my online pick of the week!
