Welcome to Game Show Heaven
Verified purchase
I was a weird little kid who watched a lot of game shows growing up. I remember particularly USA Network’s block of game shows which included Press Your Luck. For some reason, I have always had a particular fondness for the show with the colorful game board and the Whammy. I have been having the best time reliving the early years of my life. I can’t believe how crazy the crowds are on these shows are. You would’ve thought they were seeing the Beatles instead of a Press Your Luck taping, but it was a different time, I guess.

I have spent several hours over the last couple of days watching this show and noting all these curious things like how many kind of ugly white crock pots they gave away in 1984 or what kind of a parting gift is weight suppressant? Something happened as I was watching these episodes, I found myself screaming along with the television show as though I was a contestant or that little boy of 5, 6, 7, watching Press Your Luck at babysitters houses.

In sum, I am having fun.

I loved Press Your Luck as a child & it still makes me smile every time I watch it now. Peter Tomarken is a great game show host in the same league as Bob Barker. Peter will live forever in the hearts & memories of everyone that enjoyed Press Your Luck. RIP Peter Tomarken you are truly a hero. My condolences to your family & friends. Amazon, please add more seasons of whammy fun!!

Fantastic show. Host, music, set and of course gameplay are about as good as it gets.

Very Disappointing Show that is Meant to Entertain the Majority
I know that Amazon censors reviews, since I been a customer for over 11 years. So I am stating now, that the next paragraph is relevant to a review of a television show, because the kind of people a show is designed to excite and entertain, is relevant to a review of a television show. This is especially true of a Game Show, whether it is designed for higher intelligent people where the winner is always the most intelligent person or skillful person on the show, or it is just basically random luck like this show. Some people looking at Game Shows, are extremely intelligent and prefer only shows where it is NOT almost always random luck who wins on the show, and where intelligence or skill is the most important thing in determining the winner. So things like this are important to include in a review to let people know what type of show it is so they don't waste their time on it.

I find it disappointing that the majority of people in America like a show that promotes gambling addiction, has ridiculous and low intelligent things like that whammy, and where the winner is usually NOT the most intelligent person on the show. So for people who don't like that kind of stuff, you may want to avoid this show.

The only reason I bother to even watch it, is because they do ask some questions that once in a while you learn something new. There was a question on this show once about whether eggs last longer if the pointed end is facing down or up, and it was interesting to learn that having the pointed side down makes the eggs stay fresh longer. I even paid attention in the supermarket, and notice that well known egg companies will almost always have all the eggs with the points down, while "generic" brands, like the supermarket brands, they didn't bother. I learned a number of interesting facts by watching this show, and I find it very disappointing that at the date and time of writing this review, not one other person even mentioned any interest in watching this show to actually learn anything. On the other hand, out of the entire approximately 22 minute episode, maybe only 5 minutes are the total amount of time dedicated to questions, and you can basically just ignore the other 17 minutes of the show.

Great show but cuts off too early.
Amazon Prime cuts off the episodes too quickly. On too many episodes you won't know who won until you watch the next show. NOT good.

Peter Temarken and Tom Newton made this show fun to watch
I found that this older show is more fun than most of the current wooden and dull game shows out there. The new press your luck seems to be more on the host than the players. She needs to talk less and let the players play!

It would be great if more of the year 1984 was added to this catalogue up to episode 188
We all want to see the Michael Larson broadcast episodes without having to go through a low res YouTube upload so it would be great to go back to this collection and add more of the episodes shot in 1984 including the infamous Michael Larson game breaker.
