The Great Escape: Race For Your Life

<i>The Great Escape</i>: Race For Your Life

Hey, who else out there remembers that old game show Finders Keepers? Where kid contestants had to tear apart a series of rooms in order to uncover objects hinted at in clues? Those old treasure hunts came to mind while watching The Great Escape, a new competitive reality show from the makers of The Amazing Race that premiered last night on TNT. The two shows aren't exactly analogous given that Escape involves pairs of grown adults competing in various tasks in order to free themselves from such confined places as a closed prison (Alcatraz) or a decommissioned aircraft carrier (the USS Hornet), but the image of these contestants ransacking rooms to search of concealed objects (usually keys) took me back to my lazy childhood afternoons spent watching Finders Keepers repeats.

TWoP 10: Bubble Shows That Should Be Saved

While there are a host of shows in danger of getting cancelled, there are only a few that we'd actually like to see get a reprieve. Here's our wish-list, and don't worry, Terra Nova isn't on here... we've mostly forgotten that show ever existed.

TWoP 10: Midseason Shows We're Already Excited About

Fall season is underway, and maybe it's just us, but we're already sick of seeing ads for these shows and talking about these pilots. Especially since almost all of the pilots we did see that really knocked our socks off aren't airing until midseason. We are not patient people, so we're looking ahead at the winter to the shows that have piqued our interest. Some we haven't seen, but on paper they've got a lot of potential and could be the cure for our forthcoming winter doldrums.
