Things I Like: Spin the Wheel (Season 1)

Dax Shepard spin the wheel Fox host

New game shows are often terrible, but I found this on Hulu but originated on Fox.

Spin the wheel Fox good spaces

The game show’s gimmick is the obvious wheel. It has insane levels of money on the wheel. Apparently a contestant can win up to 23 million dollars in one episode.

Spin the wheel contestant Good Samaritan

All the contestants are Good Samaritans. So while it’s nice they can win so much money, at the final round they can lose everything and go home with nothing. It’s rather cruel when that happens.

I will say Dax Shepard did a really good job hosting. He was sharp, informative, and quite funny.

Back to zero space spin the wheel Fox

The show’s first season is not perfect but it was a fun watch. Most of the contestants are kind of dumb, so the questions are kind of easy. The wheel is so flawed in odds that you’ll never see anybody win their maximum amount. Even if they had a hundred seasons nobody would ever do it.

Things I Like: George McFly (Back to the Future)

Back to the Future Biff harasses George McFly in Diner

George McFly was Marty’s dad and we see him the most as a young man in 1955. He was even more pathetic as a teenager as he was as a grown up.

Because in the original 1985 timeline, he had severe confidence issues that really held him back.

And luckily, he got the love of his life back and the timeline was secured.

And with his son’s help, he became a much more successful man now that the timeline was changed for the better.

Fake Crispin Glover George McFly Back to the Future 2

Apparently his actor Crispin Glover had a pay dispute with the studio and chose not to be in the second movie. But they got another actor and put his mold to create a fake face. Crispin Glover ended up suing the studio and ensuring that Hollywood can never do that again.
