Happy Easter: Celebrate With “Don’t Scare the Hare”
How could we not celebrate Easter, everyone favorite holiday of rabbits and chocolate, with our favorite rabbit-based game show. OK, so that’s a pretty exclusive club of one show. Let’s celebrate Easter with BBC’s surreal 2011 game show Don’t Scare the Hare. Don’t Scare the Hare can only be described as, “BBC executives took a bong hit before a development meeting and came up with this.” Essentially teams of adults played various challenges while trying not to scare an animatronic hare. Not much more to the show. It’s really that, and it’s as insane as it sounds.
As a kids show it may have worked. I can appreciate them trying a very childish adults show. However, this was a little too much. You watched Don’t Scare the Hare with jaw dropped and mind thinking, “Is this real? Am I dreaming?” No, you’re not. It’s even hard to get a firm opinion of the show. Was it that bad? No. Was it that good? Not really. It was floating in the middle, like a majority of other shows, but it was just so surreal and bizarre that my mind could not process what was happening. I’ve tried, and my brain refuses to let me formulate ideas and thoughts about the show. But hey it’s got Sue Perkins in it and she is officially the most liked woman in all of BuzzerBlog-dom, and opinions otherwise are not allowed here.
So Happy Easter. You’re welcome.
