Throwback Thursday – Epic UK Final Chase

Let’s have a little fun with the web craze known as “Throwback Thursday” here on the site. On November 5, the new season of The Chase begins on GSN. We’re very excited and the reception has been very positive across the board during its first run back in the summer. A new series in the UK is currently underway. To get you ready for Season 2 here in the U.S., here’s a Final Chase from the UK with The Beast, Mark Labbett, from last month. It features a full house playing for a massive £60,000. Okay, it’s not much of a throwback, but it’s one of the more exciting finishes the show has seen. It further solidifies the fact that The Chase is the best quiz on television right now.

  • I don’t know what the Chase is like in other countries. I really do enjoy the Game Show Network’s (GSN) Version with Brooke Burns. I wish someone would create an online game where I could play this for fun. I think FOX was making a mistake for not picking this show up.

    • stephen says:

      Fox didn’t pick it up probably because Mark L. Thompson wasn’t available nor could they figure out how to make the reveal last 30 minutes.

  • Brekkie says:

    I assume the GSN version remains weekly, but surely ITV will be looking for syndication in order to really make some money on it. Have any shows previously gone from GSN to syndication?

  • Chris Parsley says:

    Back in the day, Hollywood Showdown took a little syndication trip itself, mostly on cable networks (like PAX) (now ion)
