      Blockbusters is coming back in May on Challenge TV hosted by Simon Mayo, just seen it on an advert.

      How many used to watch Blockbusters when it was hosted by Bob Holness?

      Do you think it could work bringing it back?

      I can't see it being to be honest, nothing ever is the same once they bring it back with different presenters. Personally I feel myself that they should have left it bee, it was a great TV series back in the day but bringing it back will not have the same affect.

      "Can I have a P please Simon" nah doesn't work :giggle:

      Used to catch glimpses of Countdown myself but never really watched it to be honest, couldn't imagine anyone else doing it over Carol V though, once someone has done something for a while and you get used to it a change never works in my opinion.

      Sorry but why can't people think of new shows instead of bringing back old shows that should have stayed buried?

      Have to agree with you, when you see shows like this resurrected you know that they are fast running out of idea's. Even newer game shows now have the same kind of way of being played as another one that has run it's course.
