Great fast-paced quiz show!
3 October 2014 | by carree_1See all my reviews

Not for the faint-hearted LOL You sit on the edge of your seat barracking for the contestants to beat "The Beast" Questions not too easy, and prob not too hard overall IF you live in the UK, but as an Australian I find a lot of questions re people and places known more to the locals of the United Kingdom and close surrounding countries well out of my wealth of knowledge! The format of both quick questions and multiple choice makes it a fun challenge to play along. Great to sit back at 3pm each weekday (or taped, over weekend) with a strong cup of tea... but you can easily forget to drink it as you get sucked deep into "The Chase"! A lot of fun and games. Easily the BEST WEEKDAY QUIZ on afternoon TV here in Australia! I give it a big thumbs up!!😉👍
