*Slaps Head*

Was it September 18 or September 28 that BrainSurge starts airing? I don't watch Nickelodeon anymore, and I'd be thoroughly embarrassed if the show's already being broadcast. :oops:

I'm 98% sure it's the 28th.

Nevermind, just read thru a thread and found out that it was the 28th. I'll watch it then. :)

Cool! Tell me about it, becuase I have to wait until Nickelodeon decides to air anymore game shows.

I miss Global GUTS too much.

There's no way that I'll be watching this in HD, even though I have a huge Comcast package.

Why not? :P

I have the standard channel, but I still can't find Nick HD.

Maybe it's not available on Comcast, or in your area, perhaps? I'm not too sure, but I'll help you do some research on Nick HD.

So how did everyone like BrainSurge?

I seem to enjoy it, although the canned child sound effects are annoying.

Dissapointing. Updated version of Get the picture. Wont last that long.

The bonus round is hella stupid.

Really, it's that bad? Remind me to make appointments when it's on in Asia! :P

That. Was. Awful. :cry:

Seems to me that they quickly threw together a set with bad lighting, at least IMO, and combined some quick games to play and what do you get? BrainSurge.

I will say that it is much better than Get the Picture in terms of gameplay, but Nick once again decided to bring back and old classic and didn't do it well... what a surprise there, huh? I honestly think they should move on from gameshows, even though I loved all of them before Ben Lyons and gang came along. This is even lower than My Family's Got GUTS to sum it all up, in terms of props, host, and from an entire show standpoint.

It was disappointing, but I wasn't expecting much anyways. You'd think Nickelodeon would have better game shows since Legends and GUTS have came along. Very uncreative. The most disappointing thing is that the game doesn't require any intelligence, so you can't laugh at the contestants for lacking it, like you could in Get the Picture. It also looked way too easy. I wonder why Nickelodeon would go back to quiz-style game shows? The most boring Nickelodeon game shows were like that. This probably won't live to see a second season, which isn't good for everyone hoping to see more games shows on Nickelodeon.

But I'm still hoping, even though I think the show could be a stepping stone for another game show.

I thought the stepping light bonus round was alright, but the rest was crap when you actually think about it.

I'm just getting an itch that somehow a revival of Legends will come back some time.

One can only hope.  Question is, if it does come back, will it be the same as it was in the '90s?

Unfortunately, no. I am sure that the dialogue will be improved, games will be better(hopefully), and the temple might be better than imagined.

If BrainSurge was more similar to GTP, I might have been hopeful. But honestly, after seeing their latest craptastic creation, I think Nick should really retire from this gameshow thing. A Legends revival would not work out today, IMHO.

Nickelodeon either needs to: produce quality programming (yeah, that's gonna happen... :roll:) or stop producing gameshows. The latter is the road I'd rather choose.

Maybe it would be better if a Legends revival could be in syndication. I have to say that the feel of the show is not as hipster or as animated as most of Nick's programming.

I highly doubt Viacom would ever sell something that would make their profits go lower. Remember how they thought YouTube would affect their profits, so they banned videos? Yeah, that's what I mean.

It's nice to dream, but let's think somewhat sensibly. :P

I don't understand when you say that the profits will go down.

Well, if the show isn't in their hands anymore, how are they going to make any money off of it? :P

Nick.com says it's running today... and tomorrow... and all the way till Friday this week...

Personally, it was a huge improvement over MFGG. It was a pretty nice idea, but seemed too easy. I strongly doubt that a second season will be filmed, but I will watch it nonetheless considering that it is better than any of Nick's currently airing shows.

Strange... Nick has today's episode as 118, then tomorrow's as 137, then Friday's as 117. Messed up airing order, much? :roll:

Better than nothing, though.

Hopefully they aren't repeats.

You know, I think this show really might last awhile (which isn't that much of a bad thing, at least Jeff doesn't ramble on and on like Ben). Checked the nick.com schedule a few times this week, and there was once where it said "BrainSurge - 140". That means that there are 40 episodes in the first season, a regular for Nickelodeon game shows - much more than My Family's Got GUTS.

Speaking of MFGG, I think Nickelodeon USA's ditched it. Guess it was too awful to show. :lol:
