“Russian Roulette” Returns to Chile in 2013
We’re big fans of the former GSN show Russian Roulette around here. I think it’s one of the best game shows of the past decade and I don’t think it’s controversial to say a majority of the hardcore game show fans agree. Ever since it was prematurely cancelled we’ve been saying how we’d love to see it back. Interested to see what the show could look like in 2013? Canal 13 in Chile just revived the show under the name Ruleta Rusa. The series, which began in 2013, largely retains the United States format. The only giant difference is that there are now five people, to fit a primetime weekly series slot, and an extra head-to-head Duel round is added. However, the Killer Questions end game, arguably one of the most exciting end games ever created, is carried through completely. Want to see a clip?
Check it out below. It’s pretty telling how great a show is when you can barely understand what’s happening and your heart is still racing as the clock winds down and the doors on the revolver quickly open. Would still love to see this pop up somewhere. Given the garbage we’ve been inundated with over the past few years it would be a welcome change.
