The Chase | Beat the Chasers

Surely all audience figures are heightened at the moment anyway. I really enjoyed the show.

Just to confirm both Bradley and the returning contestant were wearing the same clothes as "yesterday".

The show seemed much stronger tonight - and there is something good about The Chasers losing because their Rugrats knowledge wasn't up to scratch.
Turns out nobody had 2020 vision.

That was a bit of a trick question. Who is the only female baby in Rugrats? Jenny said Angelica instead of Lil - both should actually be correct - Angelica is simply the oldest one. Also, Chuckie later gained a step-sister after his father re-married, called Kimi.

I think technically in the world of Rugrats babies couldn't talk to adults, Angelica as a toddler could talk to babies and adults. But it was an absolutely rotten question and probably for the best it landed on the side of the Chasers.

I would have said Lil as well because Angelica in Rugrats is three and a three year old isn't a baby anymore but then again if we include Kimi then the question isn't right.

Having watched it for the first time tonight, and left slightly underwhelmed.

The format of the quiz does seem to be pretty thin on the ground. A seemingly pointless cashbuilder round just for the bottom tier offer which not many will go for, and the timed round. However with no pause for pushbacks etc. it all gets a bit overwhelming and before you know it the contestant has either won or lost and it's next contestant please.

I feel the format would work much better and would prove much more gripping to watch if it's one contestant going through rounds of 2 chasers then 3 then 4 etc. deciding to gamble after every round. The risk factor format would work much better than the slightly manic conveyor belt we have now.

It reminds me in part of The People Versus mk.II rather than The People Versus mk.I.

I think a lot of people are coming up with ideas of how to slow the game down and over complicate things.

I know it’s hard to determine how they base the offers, but I’m not sure that really matters because sometimes the basis on what the offers are made is confusing on the main show too.

Yes, they could probably tweak one or two things. But it ticks a lot of boxes at the moment, there is a good amount of questions, strong personalities and at least 4 end games per show.

The basic blue print is strong and if the figures continue they’d be mad to mess with it.

Don’t overthink the format and ask yourself whether you enjoy the programme.

I think it's a good show. But just a couple of observations.

The number of Chasers you are against is pretty irrelevant really isn't it? 2 would probably do as well as all 5. And 5 can be a hindrance when they buzz in and get something wrong that another Chaser would have known. So always go for all 5 I think.

The end game feels like it should be a bit longer, it only takes a couple of wrong answers by either side to make it unrecoverable. But I understand the 60 seconds as every game is close as a result and so makes better TV.

How about getting rid of the cash builder round and having set amounts to keep it more even for all players?

5 Chasers - £100k
4 Chasers - £50k
3 Chasers - £25k
2 Chasers - £10k

The Chasers themselves pick the amount of time they want to offer. It would also help cut down a lot of the chatter in between rounds so there's more quizzing and excitement rather than rules being explained and reexplained for every contestant.

A big part of The Chase is the Chasers using the amounts of money offered as a way of tempting the players to take a risk. It’s understandable that they want to carry that across to this.
