    People it's a game show, and it's way better than Deal or No Deal, aside from the hosts. This is much more challenging to the dwindling pea brains of TV game show viewers.

    I enjoyed this and I'm glad they will be bringing it back. There were a few things that could be improved and hopefully they will do that.

    I really like the concept of this show. It requires contestants to be creative and random as opposed to every other gamshow out there which requires you to be logicical. Identity is a breath of fresh air and a win for new game shows as it pushes the limit of the right brain which most people fear to use in everyday life. It lets the world know that professions are not gender specific and I really like the concept of this show.

Identity is a breath of fresh air and a win for new game shows as it pushes the limit of the right brain which most people fear to use in everyday life. It lets the world know that professions are not gender specific and even gives us a chance to put faces behind the names of some famous "behind the scenes" people. Also gives our younger generation insight into professions they might not get to see in their everyday life. I really think that the producer of this show was very creative with its concept and I look forward to the next episode. Expand

    I think the show is a refreshing change from Deal or No Deal- at least here you can use some judgement and process of elimination. No its not exactly meant to stimulate rocket scientists, and its not politically correct. I think Penn is a great host- those who say he is "trying" to be like Howie obviously have never seen him perform before, either in Vegas or on his Showtime series.

I think Penn is a great host- those who say he is "trying" to be like Howie obviously have never seen him perform before, either in Vegas or on his Showtime series. He is just being himself, so get over it. I hope the show continues, if not for any other reason than to irritate the politically correct. Expand

    Penn Jillette can't pull off the illusion that he's as likable as Howie Mandel. [22 Dec 2006, p.75]

    Problem is, the show is more comfortable with cliché than subtlety.
