Can you trust your partner to fairly divide his share of the pot? That's what this Game Show Network entry attempted to determine, as teams of two competed to answer questions and divide their bank.

Storyline

"Friend or Foe" was a game show combining knowledge and trust -- the catch being contestants (previously unknown to each other and paired at the beginning of the show) had to decide whether their partner would fairly divide the pot. Six contestants (three choosers and three "potential partners") are paired off and head to their own isolation booth. After spotting the teams $200, host Kennedy reads a series of multiple-choice questions, each worth $500. Both team members had to agree on an answer; after reviewing the guesses, Kennedy revealed the correct answer and announced the winnings. After four questions, the team with the least amount of money (or, in case of a tie, who took the longest time answering) are eliminated from the game ... but not until they head to the Trust Box to divide their winnings. That's where the fun (and oftentimes, shenanigans) begins. Each team member made a brief statement to their partner on why he/she should vote "Friend" and split the money. The ...

Terrible, terrible, terrible.
1 July 2002 | by youngmenschSee all my reviews

When, Game Show Network unveiled it's late night line up, it brought in two semi-decent shows (Whammy! or Russian Roulette). However, in the middle of those two shows they stuck in a piece of trash, "Friend or Foe?".

The show starts with people picking partners based on how less-embarrassing something they did in the past is. The partners then answer simple question within a very generous time limit (yet some pairs STILL manage to mess up). The lowest ranking team at the end of each round goes to "trust box" where they either vote friend or foe. This is the most irrelevant part of the game, because it is not about trust, as they could have had "pick a number 1 or 2". Anyway, if both people "vote" friend then they split their petty winnings evenly. If they both "vote" foe then they each leave with nothing. If one goes "friend" and one goes "foe" then they split the money 50-50.

Anyway, when the final group is decided, they go play "Right or Wrong" (very creative name) where they get simple questions to build up their bank (known as trust fund). They head to the trust box where they divide up their money.

While all of this is bad, what makes the show terrible is the host Kennedy. Kennedy is extremely obnoxious and annoying. She seems to think she is funny, even though the "jokes" she says are terrible. Overall, I find myself tuning into "Whammy!" at 10:00 then doing something else for a half hour when "Friend or Foe" comes on then tuning back in at 11 for "Russian Roulette".
