My TV show review: "Password Plus" and "Super Password..."
13 September 2006 | by sethn172See all my reviews

The excitement and fun of a retro game show can be found in "Password," the famous TV game show where two teams, "$100,000 Pyramid" style, try to win big bucks. One person reads out a clue on a folded up piece of paper while the other person tries to guess the word. There are up to five clues revealed on the board above, and one team must figure out what the actual word really is!!!!! And now, my two favorite variations that currently run on GSN:

  • "Password Plus:" It stars Allen Ludden, who looked (no offense) really awful, like he always wore a raincoat to the show or something. Anyways, it had the most colorful set, and it had "Alphabetics," which gave the contestant a chance at big bucks!!!!! I once saw a man go through it fast and correctly about a week ago and that was awesome!!!!!


  • "Super Password:" It stars Bert Convy and the set looked different, like a huge NES system; almost! Everything's the same, except that there's "Ca$hword" now. I also like how the word appears on screen and the noise that accompanies it!!!!!


C'mon, folks!!!!! These versions of "Password" meant good entertainment for everyone; this is stuff our parents (and us as little children) watched when they just got married!!!!! So watch them on GSN or else!!!!!

10 stars
