Every kid knows “the floor is lava.” The ground is molten rock and if you step in it you “die” (a.k.a. lose). The game’s simplicity is why it’s so appealing. All you need is a room full of objects to climb over. Then mix in your own craftiness and imagination and you’re ready to go. And the best part? No actual magma or money necessary. But now Netflix is turning that childhood staple into a new game show for adults, with the Floor is Lava.
It’s a premise that seems silly, absurd, and totally overdue.
