Currently making my way through S1. I looked through the thread, but couldn't find what one of the pieces of "whimsical music" is, and it's been stuck in my head all day. Would somebody mind helping me out? Linked timestamp from S1E8

So, going through Season 2:

I just started the Monopolizing Game. It's actually fun to see that there are "home editions" of some of the games here, and I wonder if they were inspired by their originals at all. Hap! Gyul! is available as a card game called SET, and the Monopolizing Game is actually a ridiculously fun party game called Pit which I highly recommend you pick up. Does anybody know of any other games that were lifted / inspired?

The international trailer was taken down sometime recently. I sent it to a friend two days ago and it worked fine then.

Is something up with TVN?

Also, I went ahead and bought Idiotape's album, 11111101. Really good if you're into electronic music.

While poking around the TVN website to see why the international trailer was taken down, I stumbled upon something else. It seems that the Korean TV channels all have a Facebook clone called "interest.me".

http://my.interest.me/thegenius
http://my.interest.me/thegenius2

There's some interesting stuff here. There's some journals from the production staff of the second season, which I can't read, but show off the original games for most of the main / death matches. All of our guesses were right. Seems that Food Chain / Layoff were also based off some board games.

There's also a pic of the Season 1 set taken from above. TV magic is excellent.

Ah, here's why the trailer was taken down. I think? It seems that at a recent NATPE event, the rights were sold, or licensed, and there's going to be a Netherlands version of The Genius.

So here's two more sites to poke around:

http://program.interest.me/tvn/thegenius2

There's plenty of data to mine through in these four.

EDIT: lol an internet petition to cancel the show after Doohee got hosed with.

Not on hand, it was the translation of some korean news site that I can't remember the name of. As for him not mentioning it, people on reality tv shows pretty much never mention organising alliances before the game starts. The shows producers certainly never want to show them saying this or acknowledging it.

Nice!

He was the lead musician and producer behind Roo'ra. He had a restaurant for a while, and that failed.

He's a stock character for a lot of Korean TV. Here he is on some random cooking show:

Go back and watch it. The producers were clever. The girl shuffles in a very odd manner to not flip backs of the cards around. He was clever enough to notice and then take advantage of it. It's a really sneaky move.

Correct. And then it all just falls down in S2.

I really like that episode because it was the one where most of them alienated him but he still came back with a solo victory, showing his genius, literally.

It's the episode I was convinced Jinho was a genius. He's sort of bumbled along the sidelines with some truly weak victories and tremendous losses for a bit, but he just came back and won everyone over.

The best part of S1 was the "it's just a dumb TV show" attitude. S2 was really competitive, and it was just unsatisfying. While this episode isn't as friendly as S1 as I would have hoped, it's certainly a big step forward over S2.

Dongmin and Kyunghoon are respectable. Otherwise, I'm a racist gently caress who can't tell the rest apart yet.

They didn't really use Extreme Ways in Season 1 or Season 2's episode 1 as well. They used some lovely dubstep song there as well (Skrillex's Bangarang for Season 1, Knife Party's Power Glove in Season 2). It will come back. They gotta give it a reveal worth it.

There was still plenty of Dexter and Ocean's 11 / Ocean's 12.

Gonna say that I didn't really like the deathmatch at all. There was way too much information and the opponents were always a few points off another -- you could accurately guess who did what, and the black vs. white distinction was useless.

Also, one of the big things I always liked about this show is how physical a lot of the props are (e.g. actually giving out cards instead of just saying numbers, moving giant chess pieces with mirrors and firing a laser instead of just doing it in your head), and having an iPad stuck in a podium felt cheap. There was a lot more you could pick up on in Black and White I based on which piece you chose, how you went for it, how slowly or fast you put it on the slot, etc. Here, you just seemed to have which odd way you drew your numbers. It didn't feel right.

I assume it was intended to be similar to the tickets in Abundance and Famine, which was really successful for pulling off a successful alliance when they traded around at random and bonded together.
