The moment of truth about the new game show, "The Moment of Truth," is.......................disappointment.
I heard so much talk about this show and saw it previewed so many times that I had to tune in for last night's premiere episode, passing up entertaining Law & Order just to watch the new show.
The show digs deep into the truths and lies of contestants who are willing to have their personal lives exposed at the chance of winning up to $500,000.
Last night, the first contestant was asked several questions, one which asked if he had done anything in his past that would give his wife any reason not to trust him. He was asked up to 50 questions prior to the actual show while hooked up to a lie detector and then asked the same questions again last night in front of the world. The show declares whether he's telling the truth or not.
As it turned out he told the truth...that he indeed had done things that would potentially make him untrustworthy to his wife. Peaks like that seemed too few and far between to me.
Anyway, interesting concept that Americans will, or so I had predicted, love. After watching it I'm not so sure because the show was much too slow-paced for my liking.
There was so much of a pause between the host asking the question and the contestant answering the question that I got really annoyed and bored.
I'm so anxious for the writer's strike to end. Us couch potatoes are starving for entertainment!
