A British Game Show America SHOULD Steal: ‘The Cube’

In today’s television landscape where Deal or No Deal rules the game show with an idiotic fist, it would seem that yet again, we’re going to have to reach outside our country for a bit of innovation. Enter Britain’s The Cube, possibly the most gripping game show I’ve ever seen.

Players are given nine lives (chances) to complete six intense games within the giant glass walls of The Cube. Each game requires some sort of physical and mental dexterity, but due to an incredibly low time limit, the simple games are maddeningly difficult, and the show will literally have you on the edge of your seat for the duration.

I’ve posted three full episodes below, and I almost gurantee you’ll be hooked. Without a doubt, we will see this in the States, it’s just a question of when.

    Wow, not bad at all. This is the coolest thing I’ve seen for a gameshow idea since Ninja Warrior (which, I guess, isn’t really a gameshow…)

    We need this in America right now.

    Neat show. I read that Fox is supposedly picking it up, but that was over a year ago. So who knows. I did get all kinds of tense when the marine was trying to do the ball & tube lifting thing.

    If they were to make an American version of this, the doors of the cube would have to open a bit wider.

    Good call.. Minute to Win It.. Man I hate Guy Fiery.. The format is adequate, but he makes the show unwatchable.
