Deal or No Deal

Call me a stick in the mud, but I don’t care for Deal or No Deal. The show runs far too slow for me. I wish Howie* Mandel and the guests would do less mingling and more playing. But what really grates me is how the women holding the suitcases always have to make some type of face that foreshadows what’s inside. Sometimes they’ll pretend it’s something really bad when it’s really good. Please, ladies, don’t ruin a fascinating show by doing that. Just open the suitcase and let us see for our selves what it is.

* For those who wonder how my surname, Zowie, is pronounced, it rhymes with Howie. I once joked about naming a son Howard and nicknaming him Howie, but my wife wasn’t crazy about that idea.
