英会話・英語 アミック Do you watch game shows?
One of Britain’s most popular game show hosts died last week, he was 89 years old. It’s been many years since I’ve owned a TV, but the news made me remember the shows I used to watch as I was growing up. There is such a wide variety of game shows from general knowledge quizzes to games of chance to obstacle courses. The scheduling would often coincide with tea time and many families watch these shows together. One of my was called “The Krypton Factor”, it comprised of several rounds, including: mental agility; response; observation; physical ability; intelligence and general knowledge. My brother and I would often try to answer the questions before the contestants! I thought that the most exciting round was the flight simulator, each contestant was scored on how well they could land an aeroplane – some contestants were much better than others – I found it very funny when a contestant landed far away from the target because I knew that, if I had attempted it, I would have been way off target too!
