Chain Reaction set observation
Watching Chain Reaction the other day and having a family member over at my house, the set of Chain Reaction (which did not change from season 1 to 2) looks like it could be very modern, even from 2012 rather than 2006. Unlike Lingo, which had an "OK" set in 2006, which wasn't too modern.
I thought GSN Chain Reaction's set always looked like a (literally) cheap rip-off of the original Millionaire or Weakest Link set, and it definitely doesn't hold up well for me. I thought the Shandi-era Lingo set looked quite a bit better, even if it was still noticably on the cheap side. But GSN's originals in the last few years have definitely had better looking sets - too bad the overall quality of the shows doesn't always match up.
The Chain Reaction set just always looked so modern, and I don't see it that it was copied off of Who Wants to be a Millionaire? Compared to Lingo, CR had a more modern set, but maybe Lingo was better
