Anybody watch this back then? Been catching some episodes on YouTube.
Adam Sandler was on it sometimes as a guy that gave clues. Some episodes include the commercials which is fun to seeproducts and hear those songs on the commercials that you may have forgotten. Also some movie trailers during commercial breaks.

I remember a bit more the alternate version that aired on ABC Saturday mornings towards the end of the run, with the slightly different "Wheel of Jeopardy" bonus round. But it was a good concept done generally well (and always enjoyed the amusing way losing contestants were yanked off the set after been eliminated).

I just learned that the host Ken Ober passed away in 2009. Sad to find this out.

Remember they always went to spring break and did the show there.

Yeah...I watched it. My friend Eddie Brill, who is a stand up comedian, was and still is good friends with Colin Quinn. I went to New York in 1989 to see my friend perform at comedy clubs like Carolines, and he called Colin on the phone, and let me talk to him, it was during the time that he was on Remote Control, and they were filming a special on Spring Break. I got to talk to him about that. It was so cool. Kari Whurer use to be on it, and she was in the movie Fire with Fire. Ken Ober was so young, it is sad to find out that someone died that young.
