    The Weakest Link

    This is a rememberance thread, there is no news of it coming back.

    But does anyone here remember it when it was on in the US? Anyone watched? I did when it was on years ago, both the Anne and George versions.

    The UK version was really good, too. I watched a ton of those. Episodes can be found on Youtube.

    I really, really, really, really, really, really, really hope this show comes back in the US.

    Yes! I actually watched an episode or two on my Smart Tv Youtube app. It was amazing. Hysterical someone else thought about it too.

    Re: The Weakest Link

    Of which version?

    I actually like the UK version better, but that too is over now, sadly. The contestants on there seemed to be more intelligent and they voted a lot more fairly.

    But if the show came back to the US with a weekly, or daily, 9 person Weakest Link episode, I'd be happy.

    I watched a few episodes just a few months ago. I think it was the celebrity versions. I really did enjoy that show when it came out so many years ago. It is my opinion that is when tv stars behaving badly or being rude became such popular television. Anne Robinson played that role so well.

    There were a few moments throughout the years where Anne's persona almost cracked. She smiled or giggled when, well, she's not really supposed to.

    As for stupid answers, one of my favorites was on one of the UK episodes.

    "What 'P' is a large white bear that lives in the Arctic region?"

    "Penguin?"

    I tried out for the show. That and Survivor. And TAR. But I didn't get chosen for any of them. I never understood why it didn't stick around longer. It was an enjoyable show.

    Who's talents are better suited for silent film? Who is more useless than an ashtray on a motor bike? Who has a brain only a mother could love? Who's IQ test came back negative? Where does knowledge go to die?

    I found this list of Anne "putdowns" - Amazing.
