#196: The Video Game
Syndication: (September 1984 - 1985)
Starcade was one of the best game shows of the 1980s. Tight gameplay, great hosting, you name it, it had it. After the video game crash, Starcade was off the air and the timeslots needed to be filled. JM Productions thought that a big stage game show would fit the bill. It instead became a case study of how not to create a game show. It's time to play The Video Game.
