- Awesome Music/Ear Worm: The original 1986-93 theme.
- Funny Moments: "Snake charmer".
- Germans Love David Hasselhoff: The British version lasted waaaaaaaaay longer than the American version, following in the pattern of other British adaptations of American game shows, such as Blockbusters and Wipeout.
- Hilarious in Hindsight: The original US version was replaced early in 1986 by Perfect Match, one of the many relationship-based "game" shows during the era. In 1995, original host Art James showed up as a (fictional) game show host in Mallrats, where he was the host of a blatant ripoff of The Dating Game.
- Moment of Awesome: Only twice so far has the pyramid-style Super Catch Phrase been won for the max amount of £50,000 in the current UK run. Both instances happened in July of 2016- here's Adei, and here's Andrea.
- Replacement Scrappy: Nick Weir and Mark Curry. While good hosts in their own right, they pretty much had no chance when following the legendary Roy Walker.
- They Changed It, Now It Sucks: The final season, with new host Curry, marked a move from the show's established weekly slot on ITV to the network's daytime lineup. Moving from weekly primetime to daily daytime meant the stakes were cheaper. Much cheaper.
- The Problem with Licensed Games: While the current apps available in the UK (the Classic app, offering gameplay like that of the show, and Quest, where the players controls Mr. Chips in a more Candy Crush Saga-type game) are pretty good, the same can't be said of the board game adaptations- which the show really wasn't meant for.
