Front Game Rules

Jim Peck asks a married man a question about his wifeThe wife responds - and the lie detector reactsTwo married couples competed. Each couple was brought out separately, and they decided which mate would be the one to enter the isolation chamber. When that decision was made, host Peck asked the unsecluded mate three either/or questions. After these questions were answered, the isolated mate was then grilled. For each question, the isolated mate answered negatively to both choices, and a "galvanic skin response" mechanism (a lie detector in layman's terms) output a reading as to his/her nerves when answering no. If the first mate's predictions matched the readings, they won $100 for the first question, $200 for the second and $400 for the third.

End Game

After both couples got a chance to play, the couple with the most money got a choice: either take $500 and call it a day, or play one final question for a grand prize. Whichever choice the winning team did not pick was given to the losing team.

Loogaroo Looks it Over

Gameplay: 1 pt.
Not much of a game, really; three whole questions per couple. At least couples on the Newlywed Game got at least seven.
Host: 2 pts.
I like Jim Peck, but I don't think he was able to use his talents to his fullest on this show.
Presentation: 2 pts.
Nothing like a big honkin' electronic polygraph readout to intimidate the bejeezis out of the one in the booth.
Execution: 1 pt.
The bonus round seemed kinda slapped on to begin with; giving the losing couple that which the winning couple refused didn't sit well with me either.
Total Score: 6 pts.
