Game Show

“It has to be a hundred pounds. If there’s not a prize worth winning, the show won’t have any purpose.”

Game Show was a chance to do something we’d talked about for a while. Robyn always wanted to do a game show, and I liked the weird entertainment it offers. It was all worth it to see the look on Robyn’s face when I said we’d both put fifty pounds in the pot. But that was what it needed, the joke had to be funny. Funny in a way that makes you laugh and uncomfortably shuffle at the same time. The dynamic it created lasted all the way through to the show itself, and the ‘decision’ to avoid deciding the rules of winning until the last minute helped us build a tension for ourselves. Well, for Robyn anyway.
