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

the-cube.jpg

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.
