Oh Jesus, they’ve run out of old shows to reboot and game shows to resurrect, so they’ve turned to arcade games. Merv Griffin Entertainment wants to do a Pac-Man reality series. WHY, oh WHY??? Merv Griffin’s president of TV, Roy Bank said, “(it’s going to be a) big, crazy Wipeout-type event with a lot of energy…The idea we have is to take what Pac-Man is and bring it to life, to bring what is essentially the world’s biggest game of tag to television.”
So basically they’re trying to do Survivor meets Wipe-Out. Sounds fun if it weren’t titled Pac-Man. I love Ms. Pac-Man (better than Pac-Man) the arcade game, but leave it where it belongs, in the arcade, not my television! It just brings such a cheese factor to TV. And what if they make the cast members all wear yellow? It’s making me throw up in my mouth just thinking about it.
I bet this thing will never launch. I could be wrong, but it all just sounds LAME.
