Match Game: Season 1 Photos
Tv Season Info
It's just not as good as my beloved '70s version. Nobody sparks the same joy in me as Gene or Richard or Charles or the queen of Match Game, Patti Deutsch.
The vibe is loose and giggly, Baldwin is an apt and quick-witted host, and the celebrity guests are game on this nicely done reboot of the 1960s quiz show that's a lot of fun to watch.
Baldwin hosted with debonair aplomb while remaining open to extending the show's racy roots.
The creators of this revival achieved what long seemed impossible -- a great new Match Game -- by restoring the concept's original simplicity and letting smart players fill in the blanks.
Looking slim and dapper, Baldwin seemed to be approaching his hosting duties almost as a piece of performance art.
