    Richard is still among the living, but I haven't seen him on anything in forever. I just looked it up and he's only 75, which means he was only in his early 40s when he was on Match Game! Shit, he looked mid-50s for about 20 damn years!

    So ridiculous. So fantastic.

    I don't think you can do this show justice in this day and age unless they're going to bring back polyester pantsuits, a bottle of Jack Daniels, and a carton of unfiltered Camels too.
    they are having too much fun there. I'm sure there were some off set shennanigans too.

    I can't stand her either! I love the OLD show!

    I haven't seen the re-runs but I remember that music.

    Scott Thompson (Kids in the Hall) makes me laugh. I miss the Chicken Lady too.

    Anyway, it depends on who they select I guess, but you can't compare those seasoned actors with the new crowd. It's like nothing these days can be suggestive and naughty which is what made the original so funny.

    I can't even watch The Price Is Right anymore because Bob Barker is gone, and to me, Bob was TPIR.
    ita... I wish I was watching it right now! Match Game (the old MG) is so fun to watch and re-live TGOD!
