Jason: And then the audiences eyes pop out like Wile E Coyote.
Chico: One, two, aaaaand Wardrobe Malfunction!
Rob: Janet Jackson will never live that down.
Chico: Okay, before we continue, a little moment for us. Our friends in London
have had probably a week of weeks...
Gordon: Believe me, we know.
Chico: We had the highs of the Olympic announcement, followed by the lows of the
terrorist bombings, and we want to let you know that our thoughts are with you.
Your pain is our pain.
Jason: Be strong, and be safe.
Chico: Your struggles are our struggles.
Gordon: Us NYCers have been through this before. We've been able to bounce back.
We know you can, too.
Chico: You're in our hearts, our thoughts, and our prayers.
Chico: Now onto happier things... Namely our playtime :-)
Gordon: Ok Chico - So what's the next game?
Chico: First up, I've got seven statements, and you're going to tell me whether
you think it's accuracy or idiocy. Thus the title, "Accuracy or Idiocy."
Jason: Alright! A WLTI Classic.
Chico: Yep. Old school WLTI here.
Gordon: Everyone ready?
Gordon: Let's do it.
Chico: Okay, first up...
Gordon: Start us off, Chico.
In homage to MTV's 70s House, which plays off of everything 70s, 70s game shows
were relatively full of camp.
Chico: Accuracy or idiocy?
Rob: Why do you think Magnificent Marble Machine was on the air?
Gordon: I would say that's pretty accurate. Magnificent Marble Machine, Gambit,
Jason: $1.98 Beauty Show, Gong Show, Treasure Hunt.
Gordon: The Cheap Show.
Rob: Rhyme and Reason
Kevin: Match game, really
Chico: Match Game is king of 70s camp.
Gordon: Match Game certainly adds to it.
Rob: The Money Maze.
Chico: You had the hosts with the pepper suits, the long microphone, the
sideburns... Monty Hall of LMAD had chops for days.
Jason: And those wild jackets
Kevin: Hey, as I was in high school in the 70s, I resemble those remarks
Chico: You did? I wanna see.. :-)
Gordon: Sure - next one?
Quoting Rodger Mullen of the "F-ville
Observer"... "Fire Me Please" should be renamed "Cancel Me Now".
Chico: That was the next one, by the way.
Kevin: accuracy. Please. accuracy.
Gordon: No - it should have been called 'Cancel me after the first episode.'
Rob: I'm gonna go Idiocy; This kinda thing has been done for years.
Chico: Okay, Robbie... Defend yourself.
Rob: This style of show has been done for years, people just being over-annoying
just to get on TV, remember America's Funniest People, most of those people were
annoying as heck.
Gordon: Yes, but it doesn't make it a good show.
Kevin: And they weren't screwing up someone's small business.
Chico: And they weren't professional actors posing as regular Joes and Janes.
Rob: Also, this lives out the fantasies of many workers wanting to just goof off
at work and make their employers mad.
Chico: I would think that most people who had that dream knew where to draw the
Rob: Plus, I found the show amusing at times.
Gordon: I'm glad someone did.
Rob: I also was one who liked Kenny Vs. Spenny.
Gordon: Well, there we go.
Gordon: Now we know who the GSN group is targetting. NEXT!
Chico: As a sidebar...
It's good to see Dave Holmes on TV again.
Gordon: Accuracy - He's a good potential new talent. He just needs a better tv
Kevin: people getting work is generally good (people with the name Paris
Chico: Okay. Back to what Kevin said.
Kathy Hilton is just trying to squelch off the fame of her (in)famous daughters.
Rob: That is pure accuracy there
Gordon: You mean you are not completely awed by the graceful style that she has
in eloquently convincing the contestants to act like Jerry Hall?
Chico: What is no?
Gordon: If she is that good, she should have given Paris lessons on how to look
good when you're being videotaped, so to speak.
Chico: You just made the bumper :-)
Gordon: aahh aahh aah aaaahhhhhhccuuuuracy
Chico: Okay, next one...
Rob: Wonder if she gave her the 'That's Hot" line
For World Poker Tour season 4, they'll have a time finding someone to replace
Gordon: Please explain to the folks at home.
Chico: She just got tired of the travel, from what I hear, so she bowed out at
the end of season 3. Full blown ending credit tribute and everything.
Jason: Accuracy...now thats hot.
Rob: Accuracy, that was a lot of travel.
Gordon: I hear Stacy Hayes is available.
Chico: She's no Shana Hiatt...
Gordon: Poker. P-o-k-e-r.
Rob: Does she even know what Texas Hold'em is?
Jason: So it amounts to is a pair of....
Gordon: Boobs. B-o-o-b-s.
Kevin: Are there also beautiful women named Marriott? What with Hilton and
Gordon: Well, there's Eva...never mind.
Gordon: If we can get a sexy Latina there who is stacked, can we call her the
Chico: Lauren Sanchez? Oh sorry, that was a reflex action.
Gordon: I'd watch Lauren Sanchez.
Jason: Then she would have to be named La Quinta
Gordon: Shana, you will be missed. Next?
Chico: We haven't touched Big Brother 6 yet, so we'll do that now...
The Summer of Secrets is the best twist yet.
Chico: We have Kevin's answer!
Jason: Too early to tell.
Rob: Way too early to tell. Wait 2 or 3 weeks.
Gordon: Accuracy. I think this is going to add a new layer of strategy that we
haven't seen in this type of show yet. The backstabbing should be a-plenty. My
only quibble is that we will be shown the connections next week. I think we
should be able to play along like everyone else
Rob: However, the whole thing gets shot to hell when both of them are put on the
Gordon: Well, only one of them - don't forget that there are 7 connections,
which means that at the halfway mark, at least one connection will still be
Chico: Although with some of these, it's painfully obvious.
Gordon: I'm saying that like the contestants, we should have to figure it out
and shouldn't get told until the last week.
Chico: Ah. Gotcha.
Gordon: Last one?
People will watch The Amazing Race on GSN.
Rob: They need to. I'll say Accuracy
Gordon: I think they will - Accuracy. As it's been pointed out, a number of
people have missed the first 4 seasons, so there will be catch-up time. I've
seen every episode, and I know I'd want to watch it again.
Rob: I however will watch not everyday, but can't wait until EDB3. I'll still
watch TAR, but not everyday.
Kevin: By the way, if the Millionaire reruns at 8 PM ET remain in place and in
current sequence, my episodes will be popping up in a few weeks. On GSN.
Jason: alright :-)
Chico: So we have Kevin and TAR. Bonus!
Gordon: Excellent. That I would watch every day.
Jason: Very much so.
Gordon: So that ends A or I. When we come back, we take an in-depth look at this
year's version of the Game Show Congress with Kevin Olmstead.
Chico: Bargains aplenty after the break on We Love to Interrupt.
