Kinda scared the set looks like the french version and so does the host! The set looks nice and the host seems decent hopefully its more game play then comedy.

At the rate we're going, also a future UK TPIR would look like the French version, altough i hope this does not happen.

You really ought to start hugging Mike Richards.  He may be our last defense against Fremantle.  I'm starting to believe these shitty sets we're seeing from around the world is what was pitched to Roger.  VIDEO BELOW

And a logo that looks like the one  our current version useshere in Australia and also what  France has, well in the promo at least.

Looks like the US theme is used in the promo.

Watch the video.  The logo you saw in the YouTube clip is not what the show uses.  The set is not an exact replica of France or Australia.  The gameplay is the French version, not the bastardized version of the French version the Australian one uses. 

They would have been better served bringing back Cash en Carlo.

Well, at least they're using games like Three Strikes and it's a fine looking set and not a exact copy of ours or Frances which is good. I like the music the Dutch version is using and their Range Game type prop.

The set looks closer to Let's Make A Deal...

Ah, I think I saw Ten Chances and not 3 Strikes in the videos on SBS6's site.

It's not Dutch but Netherlands. Not the same country or language.
The geography is not limited to America...

I love the set and music. I could stare at that set all day, though I wish they did a bit more with the second level. I can only kinda understand the host (Dutch and English are surprisingly similar), but he seems excellent.

Uh, yeah, it is.  The proper term for residents of the Netherlands is "Dutch," and Dutch is also the country's official language.

For you maybe but it's a germanic origin word.
Sorry but for me Deutschland is Germany, you understand that is a bit difficult to know when you are not english, right ?
That was easier with the real country name.

For this version, I think this stage set is really good with rounded forms. The french set is a bit cold, very straight.
Games are decent and a little bit old-school look, with a quite good budget for this hour in Europe. Only the showcase is very cheap.

We understand the words aren't interchangeable in German, but they are in English.

(I'm not trying to be picky or backseat moderate or whatnot, you are free to differentiate it however you want...however, with about 95% of the site's users being from the U.S. or Canada, it'd be confusing to the masses. But hey, look on the bright side, at least you learned something new about English!)
