Cash Cab

Postby Coppermine » Fri Feb 10, 2006 11:36 am

I thought I'd take a time out to tell you guys about the best trivia game show since Jeopardy. Yeah, that's right.

It's call Cash Cab and it's on the Discovery channel from 6-7 PM EST. So this is what happens... people unsuspectingly get into a New York City cab. They tell the driver where they're going and without warning, the ceiling starts flashing! "You're in the Cash Cab, it's a TV game show that takes place right here in this cab!"

Wow! Awesome! But it's so much fun, these people are like "Huh, ok" and this cab driver starts asking them questions on the way to their destination. If they get three wrong, he kicks them out of the cab with no money. But, if they don't know the answer to a question, they have two choices: a mobile shoutout where they can call anyone they want on a cell phone and ask them the question, or a street shoutout, where the cab pulls over and they ask some random person on the street their question.

It's so awesome. Anyone see it?

I have seen this show several times in the last couple of weeks or so. Luckily in the winter most of the time, I can get home by 6 to watch a little TV. I love the street shoutout part of the show, especially when the "street" person is scared and does not want to help the contestant out.

I find this show very entertaining. I had no idea it existed until about a week ago, and I find it very fun. I like it as well because I get about 90-95% of the questions right, and if I'm sitting with my buddies and/or fiance, we can generally get every single question of an entire episode, which means if we ever end up in that thing, we're in business. :-b

Anyway, I think it's a great show run on a ridiculously small budget, and it's nice seeing fools get 3 of their first 5 questions wrong and get booted 30 blocks from their destination. :-D

Haven't seen it, but I think I am going to have to make sure that I tune in to an episode. Sounds interesting
