“Quiz” can feel frustratingly basic at times, suffering from slights and gaps that make the three episodes sail while feeling incomplete. The series would have benefited from either being a 90-minute movie or at least five episodes.

nce the nuts and bolts are dealt with and the focus shifts to the Ingrams and life among normal humans outside the TV studios, the drama becomes as addictive as Who Wants to Be a Millionaire? proved.

When it does come together, “Quiz” is as compelling as the show that first inspired it.

While I don't always believe this, it's an experience that plays out with more purity if you come in knowing as little as possible.

Quiz is smart, entertaining, and told with a great sense of efficiency. By sticking to three hour-long episodes, it provides all wheat and no chaff.

Given how entertaining it is, there's a much better than 50-50 chance that those who watch won't feel the least bit cheated.

A remarkably uncynical version of events around the Coughing Major, which shows several points of view with clarity and empathy.
