TO TELL THE TRUTH REVIEW
John O'Hurley actually is a good host. He keeps the game moving along
while interjecting a comment here and there. He seems to have good
interaction with the panel and the contestants.
When Pearson first announced Meshach Taylor as a regular,
and Paula Poundstone as a semi-regular, I thought to myself 'Match
Game '98 all over again!' But I believe that I am wrong. Even in the
first shows, Meshach and Paula seem to have a good chemestry going.
The set is really good looking. The panel's desk and
Mr. O'Hurley's podium are a throwback with that dark wood
and square pattern on it. The background looks good also,
with the TTTT fingers on it. The contestants podiums look good too.
The music selection is, umm.... interesting. The theme isn't
the type that will get in your head, (like the current Family Feud).
Something different is that they play music while reading the statement.
The show has alot more ineuendo, but that's the way most shows are
now. Burton Richardson is a strong announcer, and fits in with the show.
