Gameshows are relatively easy to produce, allow sets to be re-used and include a pretty simple script that doesn’t deviate too much from episode to episode. With a simple premise and taking cues from shows like Takeshi’s Castle and Wipeout, Netflix’s gameshow Floor is Lava missed the mark with an annoying narrator and some even more annoying contestants. Netflix made little changes to the second season. There are more obstacles and plenty of opportunities to fall in the lava. At the same time, the show continues to slip up with its narration and even brings back contestants from season one too. The format is very similar but this time there are only five episodes. The colourful water (aka. lava) returns of course, with the goal here to avoid falling in. Each room sees three different sets of teams of three battling it out, with the goal being an exit at the other side of the room. Those who make it through this section are then graced with a final round, involving a massive mock-up of a volcano. Two contestants from each team must cap their volcano with a rock and the team that get there first and do it the fastest, wins the $10k prize money. The show also includes a final episode featuring celebs from different Netflix reality shows.
