The Game Show Reviewer
is a reviewer of... well, game shows. Possibly the only review show that focuses on game shows. A member of Space Monkey Mafia Studios, Game Show Reviewer is a plot-driven review show similar to Atop the Fourth Wall
. The story revolves around a computer virus infected-time traveling fighter plane that for some reason usually lands the lead character in close proximity of a game show studio, usually leading to his reviewing of it.
This series provides examples of:
- Berserk Button: Try not to mention Pyramid 2002 around the Reviewer...
- Caustic Critic: Averted. The game shows reviewed on the show are usually very popular and big successes. There are exceptions to every rule though…
- Our Time Machine Is Different: Tempest One, a retrofitted fighter plane from the future (circa 2260)
- Our Time Travel Is Different: Never really explained how it works...and it doesn't really work that well at first anyways...
- The Other Darrin: Tempest One (Sarah) and Cmd. Sara Stormer were recast as of Part 2 of The Price is Right Review. This also meant that the previously on...was redone with the new actress in the role.
- The Reveal: In the Family Feud episode it's revealed that Cmd. Sara Stormer is a game show reviewer and is out to destroy the Game Show Reviewer to be the only Game Show Reviewer. This is complete with her own title sequence were she calls the Game Show Reviewer "a renegade." She not a very good one as she skips over every game show host of Family Feud after Louie Anderson because she call them "filler." The Game Show Reviewer has to fill the audience in on the others, especially host Steve Harvey and the funny answers that almost rival the Dawson era.
