Five potential sequels to Don’t Scare The Hare

with one comment

Robot hare

Robot hare.

The BBC has started airing an amazing new game show called ‘Don’t Scare The Hare‘, in which contestants play a series of boring games while trying not to frighten a robot hare. Seriously. Except it’s not as fun or interesting as that observation makes it sound.

Here are five suggestions for potential follow up programmes.

Don’t Grill The Krill: contestants are asked to solve a mystery but may not ask any questions of the local shrimp-like marine crustaceans. But there’s a twist – all the contestants are robots.

Don’t Shock The Cock: contestants must avoid outraging the moral sensibilities of a prudish rooster.

Don’t Rape The Ape: contestants are imprisoned with only an ape for company. Over gruelling weeks and months they must learn to live with the animal as their friend and companion, sharing food and bedding. The last contestant to sexually assault the ape wins.

Don’t Alert John Hurt/Don’t Awaken Kevin Bacon: UK/US versions of the show where participants must cast a new supporting character role in a major Hollywood production without arousing the superstar actor from their drunken slumber.

Don’t Ignore Roger Moore: contestants must mollify the ego of legendary James Bond thespian Moore by pretending to listen to his anecdotes about Cubby Broccoli as they take part in elaborate, noisy games. If Sir Roger suspects they are not paying attention to his tedious tales, he has the contestants whipped.
