Get on the ockey and eyes down for a full house. Not this time, though, and don't forget, every second counts!
Now remember, the money you won earlier on - that's safe. And the money you won for charity - that's in the post at the end of the show. All you're gamblin' are the prizes you won on Bully's Star Board. Give 'em some help audience, don't listen to 'em lads. What are you going to do then? You know what they say, you can't beat a bit of Bully can you?
As you may have guessed, Bullseye is just one of the offerings on this slogan filled collection of top TV quiz shows and, to be fair, it's pretty good stuff too.
Following the lines of the Sunday afternoon darts bonanza closely, take on a friend or two and go for points with some tricky questions and easy to master darts throwing.
If darts isn't your cup of tea, try a spot of Bingo with Uncle Bob. Again, if you've seen the TV quiz, then picking up this game will be a doddle. Even some of the questions are a cinch but, be careful, you don't want to be wallied when it comes to the prizes. Looking for something a little more sophisticated perhaps? Then join Mr Burns for some gruelling mental agility, memory recall, logic and general knowledge tests in Krypton Factor. Pit your wits against the computer or a friend and, be sure to do well on the physical ability section, or your brawn won't mean a thing in this brain-teasing collection of questions.
I'll have a P please Bob. Ah, yes, how often have we seen those little giggles as the contestants share the little in-jokes on Blockbusters. I must admit to being hooked to that proggie when it first came out, though I can't be dealing with all that singing and dancing they do at the end nowadays.
Never mind, for a bit of pure blockbusting, try out this neat computer version, which'll have you and afriend chasing across the board on the quest for Gold Runs. It's great entertainment, as are all the others, and a bit of a laugh to boot.
Last, but by no means least, you're going to like this, not a lot, but you'll like it. Yep, Mr Magic himself is here with Every Second Counts, the general knowledge test for time. The more you answer, the more time you collect for the dramatic grand finale. Choose your topics wisely and see if you can't get that holiday of a lifetime. If only!
For pure entertainment purposes, TV Showtime is an absolute family must for Christmas or parties, just as long as you haven't got too many bad losers in the family.
For the price, it's well worth getting hold of because, while it may not win any prizes in the originality stakes, it's great fun throughout and guaranteed to raise a laugh.
If you can see yourself on TV as a quiz contestant, get TV Showtime and start rehearsing now!
