Thursday Movie Picks #194: Foreign TV Shows

This being Thursday, it's time for another edition of "Thursday Movie Picks", the blogathon run by Wandering Through the Shelves. This being the last week of the month, it's time for another TV edition, and it's a foreign-language version. I'm a game show fan, so I've picked three more game shows:

Die Pyramide (Germany, 1979-1994). German version of the game show Pyramid, created in the US by Bob Stewart in 1973. You'll note that the bonus round is rather different from the American version. And the American version didn't have a musical interlude.

Trato Hecho (2005). Univision produced this version of Let's Make a Deal for Hispanic Americans in 2005. Unfortunately I couldn't find a full episode of the show, so you'll have to watch a fragment.

Rischiatutto (Italy, 1970-1974, revived in 2016). Italian version of Jeopardy! I don't actually speak Italian; I just wanted to post a clip of a foreign version of Jeopardy! instead of one of the zillion foreign versions of Wheel of Fortune.

I've heard of Rischiatutto many times before (I'm Italian) but I've never seen it. I didn't even know it was a remake of an American show.
