Variety.com - Legends Of The Hidden Temple is headed back to the small screen, but not in its original kid-friendly format. The Nickelodeon competition adventure series from the 1990s is all grown up in the revival ordered Tuesday by the CW.
The original Nickelodeon series that aired from 1993-1995 was inspired by Nintendo’s “The Legend of Zelda” game and the “Indiana Jones” movie franchise. The new iteration is described as a supersized and reimagined adult version, so participants are no longer kids, but nostalgia-loving millennials.
This news reminds me of how much time I spent watching Nick GAS as a kid. Just wall to wall game shows that you could leave on for hours throughout the day. So many great shows that now that I think about it...I can probably write a whole new blog post about that in the future.
This new version of the show seems like it will include a lot of the classic elements with a modern twist. I'm excited to check it out.
And how great would it be if the contestants could still only win 90's prizes. I'm talkin' moon shoes, telescopes, and all of those other contraptions that we could buy over the phone for 3 easy payments of $19.95.
