Gene Rayburn was the original gangsta. Game shows were a HUGE part of my childhood. You'd be surprised at how much you can learn by watching them. And I don't just mean Jeopardy either... "I can Name That Tune in 7 notes!" "Big bucks! Big bucks! NO WHAMMIES!" "And your host, Tom Kennedy..." Unfortunately, the time that I personally consider the glory days of game shows (the 70's and early 80's) will probably never be equaled again. I mean, apart from the rotten corpse of The Price is Right, what game shows are even being MADE nowadays anyway?
