Re: The Colour Of Money

I thought it was an okay gameshow and will probably continue to watch it. I did turn over half-way through so I missed the female contestant and only saw the gentleman's game from machine 3 of 10. I also assume that the contestants have to pick a target over £55,000 as thats the total of the 10 lowe...
