Legends of the Hidden Temple

Nickelodeon just announced that they're bringing back the classic game show Legends of the Hidden Temple...

 

...as a TV movie. Huh.

 

On one hand, this is a weird idea and is probably just using the name to cash in on nostalgia, and doing an adventure movie on a TV budget might not be the best idea. But on the other hand, Hidden Temple always did have a narrative in the episodes, so it's one of the very few game show that could work as a movie (besides Carmen Sandiego, as Aanchir has kindly pointed out). And if The Lego Movie taught me anything, it's not to judge a movie by its premise. And who knows, maybe the movie will be popular enough to bring the show back? One can hope.

...so it's probably the only game show that could work as a movie.

Where in the World is Carmen Sandiego? would like a word with you.

Whoops, forgot about that one. It was before my time. But in my defense, I did say probably.

I remember this show. There was a narrative? And knowing Viacom, this is probably a cash grab.

 

Not much of one, but yeah. Each episode was based on a historical figure who's "lost treasure" ended up in the temple, and the teams would compete to see who would get to retrieve it. But yeah, probably just a cash grab.
