Super Trio Show Criticism: right or wrong?
Hosts: Chin Kar Lok, Wong Cho Lam, Eric Tsang, Louis Yuen (from left to right)
Super trio show 8th season had aired a total of 3 episodes so far. I was really anticipating to watch it when I first saw all those funny pictures of the first episode. It's probably the longest running gameshow in Hong Kong. Its first debut was actually in 1995. Wow! It'd been 13 years!
So what is with all the complaints? Viewers claim that the show contains violent, cruelty, and inappropriate behaviour that could affect children. I got to admit, the show does contain games that could be inappropriate for children to watch, but it's indeed very entertaining! I'm almost finish with the first episode and it's very hilarious! This game involves body contact (the famous seaweed/card transfer game), intelligence, and fast movements. It's really weird, but we tend to love gameshow that involves a bit of violence right? But the purpose of this gameshow is to entertain viewers isn't it? Therefore, I absolutely don't think that there's anything wrong with displaying a bit of violence that could be entertaining. (Please note that this is base only on my point of view.)
This is probably why viewers think that the show is inappropriate?
Body contact and a bit of violence is probably why viewers think that the show is inappropriate. The older generation might not like these kind of actions, but it's the 21st century and displaying these type of action is quite normal. Because I live in the States, these type of actions are really normal and familiar among my surroundings, while in Hong Kong, some things are more conservative than others. I guess this is the reason why the older generation had file the complaints against the game show.
Other than that, the game show is overall fun and entertaining!
One of the games from the first episode is adapted from the Japanese game show, "The Human Tetris". It's a must watch because it's very hilarious! Basically, the foam board will display a body structure and the contestant have to somehow fit through it so that they can successfully go to the other side. If not, they will fall into the water. It might look easy, but it's actually very hard! The picture of Charmaine Sheh clinging onto the board is just priceless.
The first Super Trio Show (Season 1)
Wow! What a difference right? Eric looked so young back then! By the way, Jordan Chan used to be one of the host for the Super Trio Show.
