Apologies, but "Don't" is actually a game show and not a television series featuring Ryan Reynolds, Adam Scott, and Eeryn Falk Lubicich. The show premiered on ABC network in 2020, and is hosted by Adam Scott. "Don't" is a comedy game show where contestants are challenged to complete outrageous and ridiculous tasks in order to win a cash prize. The show has a unique twist, where instead of being rewarded for completing tasks, the contestants are penalized for breaking any one of the show's rules, which are collectively known as the "don'ts." Each episode features four teams made up of friends, family members, or co-workers, who must work together to complete physical challenges, mental puzzles, and obstacle courses. The tasks range from simple to bizarre, and include challenges such as navigating an obstacle course wearing a giant hamster ball, completing puzzles while being doused in water or covered in slime, and racing to identify different dog breeds while being pulled around by a dog on a leash. Throughout the challenges, host Adam Scott provides humorous commentary and encouragement, while the contestants are kept on their toes by the strict "don'ts." These rules can include anything from not saying specific words to not touching certain objects, and breaking any of the "don'ts" results in a reduction of the team's overall prize money. Contestants must also be aware of the "danger zones," areas on the set where anything goes and additional penalties may be incurred. The game is played over three rounds, with the penalties for breaking rules increasing in severity each round. The show's format allows for a lot of creativity and humor on the part of the producers and contestants. Some of the standout moments from the show's first season include a challenge where teams had to transport a raw egg through an obstacle course without breaking it, a challenge where contestants had to bounce on trampolines while trying to shoot basketballs into hoops, and a challenge where teams had to rappel down a building while holding a giant stack of pizza boxes. In addition to the outrageous tasks and penalties, "Don't" also features a celebrity guest in each episode, who helps the teams with their challenges and provides some extra star power to the show. Overall, "Don't" is a lighthearted and entertaining addition to the game show genre. Its unique twist on the traditional format, along with its hilarious challenges and celebrity guests, make it a must-watch for anyone looking for a fun and silly way to pass the time.
