Although this was made in 1997, I still managed to get a couple answers correct. This is extremely similar to the other You Don't Know Jack games, but this just has questions and answers relating to TV shwos back in the 90's, 80's, etc.

Loved playing YDKJ back in my youth, but it seems the us versions of it are a tad too american for me as a German. Hence I don't know a thing, and am reduced to guessing all the time xD Still nice for its nostalgic feeling and humor. Got all YDKJ games very cheap during the sale in a bundle, so it isn't worth complaining about the culture barriere. Overall, it is a nice game for now and then, but nothing special.

For this game in particular, you better know everything about ♥♥♥-old tv-shows, or you will fail as much as I did xD

Are you an 80's kid? Can you PRETEND you're an 80's kid? Did you watch a LOT of tv? Like, old tv shows? You Don't Know Jack Television might be for you. Not a big fan of television? You won't know a single ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ thing they ask you. Definitely a niche game, your enjoyment is directly tied to your hopefully encyclopedic knowledge of television. So be warned; you better know your Thursday night NBC lineup for 1986.
