* AwesomeMusic: The [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vddbWs8TOLk American]] [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2RzJiwz8kjk themes]] are pretty catchy (even if the Rafferty theme was stock music); the [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c5m9luH0Da4 classic British theme]] from [[Series/CatchPhrase Ed [[Series/TheCrossWits Welch]]

* FirstInstallmentWins: When people talk about the British version, most refer to the original Bob Holness version. This is somewhat realised in the latter revivals, with the 2000 revival replacing the 1997 purple colour scheme back to the more familiar blue scheme and restoring the original theme song (albeit [[RearrangeTheSong rearranged]]) that was also discarded in 1997. The 2012 revival takes it one step further by [[https://twitter.com/#!/simonmayo/status/167615797529812992/photo/1 reviving the original game board]].

** Also present when referring to the American version, with viewers being more familiar with Bill Cullen's 1980-82 run than Bill Rafferty's 1987 outing.

* InternetBackdraft: The British version is ''far'' better than the American version, and if you say otherwise, you're a moron.

* TooGoodToLast: What some think about the 1987 revival, which was simply a placeholder until ''Classic {{Concentration}}'' was ready to debut. For the last few weeks, ''Blockbusters'' was no longer accepting new contestants and their plugs were replaced by ones for ''Classic Concentration''.

* ** The British version was also very popular in Dubai's English-speaking expats, to the point where shops and offices would closed early so everyone could watch it.
