YMMV / Blockbusters

  • Awesome Music: The American themes are pretty catchy (even if the Rafferty theme was stock music); the classic British theme from Ed Welch is even better.
  • First Installment Wins:
    • 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 rearranged) that was also discarded in 1997. The 2012 revival takes it one step further by 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.
  • Germans Love David Hasselhoff: The British version far outlasted the American ones.
    • 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.
  • Internet Backdraft: Fans of the British version and the American version have gotten testy with each other.
  • Retroactive Recognition: Stephen Merchant appeared on the UK version back in 1997.
