** Also, the ''Games of 90'' series focuses on all the different game shows on the air in 1990 and reviews them in general... although a few (notably the Robb Weller season of ''Series/WinLoseOrDraw'' and the 1990 US adaptation of ''Series/TheKryptonFactor'') have turned into inductions midway through; additionally, the review of ''The Last Word'' (a short-lived game that was Creator/MerrillHeatter's last until ''[[Series/{{Gambit}} Catch 21]]'') also included a primer on "[=CanCon=]", the rules that state that game shows taped in Canada have to have Canadian content and how various series handled that rule/quota.

* BiasSteamroller: Seidelman ''hates'' Scott Sternberg, and shows no mercy when reviewing a show produced by him (or in the case of ''Let's Go Back'', produced '''and''' hosted by him).
** Seidelman also isn't too fond of Tim Puntillo, as evidenced in the inductions of ''Who's Still Standing?'' and ''Identity''.
** She also hates Dan Enright, especially when Enright produces a show alone.
