Deal or No Deal

I loved the show Deal Or No Deal when it premiered a few months ago. So I started watching it this week, but I must say I was a little disappointed.

The network has started putting more drama with the hand going to the button and not pressing it, talking more to the family, having at least one family/friend shout not to go for the deal, etc. And that is precisely the drama I don’t like about reality TV, though this is not so much that genre.

Give me pure and simple DOND with the only thing to evaluate is how likely are you going to bust in the next set of picks. That makes it interesting, and mathematically challenging.

I like the show, but I am not going to watch it anymore.

  1. And I thought (from the message heading) that you were referring to the nuke deal between India and US. Which is exactly there – deal or no deal. What with a host of approvals still required, for it to go through, inspite of the fanfare of the basic signing…accompanied as it was with widespread protests in various cities and countries of the world!

    Well, the nuke “deal” is significant because till now, the US had not even agreed to the terms. Now that the President has at least agreed to the terms, and in fact made some concessions from his original stance, it means we have a breakthrough and that is why we have to celebrate. But yes, when and how it will materialize, we will have to wait and watch.
