Game changer 改變遊戲規則的人或物
The script of this programme 本節目台詞
Feifei: 大家好，歡迎收聽《地道英語》。我是馮菲菲，還有我的搭檔 Harry。
Harry: Hello everybody and welcome! And the popular modern expression we are going to look at in this programme is 'game changer'.
Feifei: Game changer - 本期節目我們就來為大家講解介紹 game changer 這個時下很流行的表達。Harry - did you end up buying a new TV like you were planning?
Harry: I certainly did - and then some! I don't know if 'TV' is really the right word for it though.
Feifei: Why not?
Harry: Well, it's so much more. It's got a 72-inch curved screen with ultimate high-definition and it's 3D. When you watch a programme, it's like you're really there.
Feifei: Wow - 72寸3D曲面屏幕電視！It sounds amazing!
Harry: It is! TV will never be the same again. In TV terms, it's a real game changer.
Feifei: A game changer? 什麼意思？
Harry: Well, it's so unlike any normal TV that it's changed the rules of what TVs are. You'll never think of TV in the same way if you watch my TV - it's a new world of television.
Feifei: Game changer 指得是一個完全嶄新的、不同以往的東西。這個東西徹底的顛覆了其所在領域的傳統遊戲規則。這個領域可以是科技方面的，比如，Harry 新買的電視；或某人的創新理念；再比如音樂或時尚領域的新發展動向，或任何一個改變傳統規則的創新。
Harry: Let's listen to some examples.
- The Beatles' album Sergeant Pepper was a real game changer - it transformed pop music forever.
- Our company needs a game changer - someone who can come in and rethink the way we do everything.
- Last year my boss said we could all work from home whenever we needed to, and it's been a real game changer in the way we work.
Feifei: 以上例句中給大家分別列舉了不同領域的 game changers。For people learning English, I suppose the internet has been a real game changer. You can study anytime, anywhere now.
Harry: You can - especially if you visit our website bbclearningenglish.com.
Feifei: Very true, 對於英語愛好者來說，我們BBC英語教學的網站就是一個真真正正的 game changer。So Harry, I suppose you're going to be staying in tonight.
Harry: Me? No, I'm going out.
Feifei: But, you've got an amazing new TV, the game changer.
Harry: I know, but it's Thursday, and there's never anything good on TV on Thursdays. And to be honest, I think I've been watching too much TV. I need to get out more.
Feifei: Oh well - I guess your TV didn't change the game for long. 謝謝大家收聽，我們下次《地道英語》再會。
