Game Shows

It is a sign of how desperate we are to watch something that we haven't seen before that Gretchen and I find ourselves watching ABC on Thursday nights. First, we watch "Holey Moley", which is an absurd combination of miniature golf and "Wipeout!". Then we watch "Don't", which is new this year and just a bit surreal. It is tickling my distant memories of "Truth or Consequences", except it's bigger and dumber. But the contestants seem to walk away with a good sum of money for being battered about and I haven't seen anyone actually get hurt, so it's all in good fun, I think.

If nothing else, it's easy to talk over because you're not worrying about the plot. And that's good for conversation. :)
