    Sounds like it is more than slightly influenced by Taskmaster.

    Which is good.

    I'll give it a go, watched the last edition of Taskmaster on Dave this evening and I was underwhelmed. The idea is a good one but it's far too "bity" need proper tasks not the sort of thing you do during lunch-break.

    Thread bumpeh! :)

    If there is an actual Studio Audience there, someone should wake them up.

    Sounds very muted.


  • Registered Users Posts: 63,641 ✭✭✭✭ Welsh Megaman


    The crew of 'The One Show' are louder :D

    I like this karaoke game :)

    Rebel Rebel :cool:

    No Limits :D

    Promising start, providing they have a lot of different games :)


  • Registered Users Posts: 21,444 ✭✭✭✭ Skid X


    Yeah, some of the games are good. Animal Names in the title of UK Number Ones, I like it.

    My phone rang midway through it so I didn't get a proper look but it seems decent although needing a studio audience.

    Just caught up with this, very enjoyable early evening fluff, sort of thing which evokes memories of shows like Call My Bluff - light and good natured. That bloody ding sound in the kareoke round kept distracting me though.

    Osman has huge hands, Annika seemed a little overwhelmed by it all :)


  • Registered Users Posts: 63,641 ✭✭✭✭ Welsh Megaman


    That was quite a tricky game

    :blush:

    Good fun this!

    Like the recurring celeb contestants throughout the week - a là Taskmaster.

    But also like Taskmaster, the presence of witty comedians help.

    FYI - next week's contestants are
    Angela Scanlon, Sara Pascoe, Clive Myrie and Rick Edwards.

    This is good craic. It's good that it's only 30 minutes as well, which keeps everything moving along at a nice pace.

    I think Nish is going to win and Harry will go full on Pub Landlord :pac:

    Bizarre moment today.


    When asked to identify the First Man to Walk On The Moon, Anita Rani and Janet Ellis both decided Buzz Aldrin got there first. They both remembered Neil Armstrong's quote but decided he didn't actually get there first.

    Is that not something everyone knows? Especially Janet Ellis having done Blue Peter for years. Neil Armstrong must be turning in his grave.

    Also, Chris Ramsey has never heard of Chas and Dave which is equally worrying.

    This is actually really enjoyable. Best new quiz show I've seen on BBC or ITV in a long time. Ends on Friday, hopefully it comes back for another series with a longer run next time around.

    Last week three of the four has no clue regarding Cape Canaveral's location or even where Florida was in one case.
    Sometimes the ignorance of famousish faces is astounding! :D

    Renewed for a 2nd Series of 50 episodes...

    http://renewcanceltv.com/richard-osmans-house-games-renewed-series-2-bbc-two/

    Finally! I've been waiting to hear this news since September. Hopefully we won't have to wait too long to see it return - a run beginning in February/March would be nice.


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 40,086 ✭✭✭✭ Harry Palmr


    50? This is what annoys me - I used to like Pointless now it's er pointless for me.

    Glad to see this back - I've missed these games. Great fun to play along to at home.

    EDIT: Was back today, FYI.

    The second series continues on Monday 12th November with Mathematician Rachel Riley, singer and farmer JB Gill, newscaster Katie Derham and comedian Richard Herring.


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 40,086 ✭✭✭✭ Harry Palmr


    Excellent, it's the show Pointless could be if it wasn't so flipping long and drawn out.




















    and featured Z listers all the time :)


  • Registered Users Posts: 43,449 ✭✭✭✭ Basq


    It's a cracking show.. light, breezy and fun!

    Rachel Riley and Katie Derham eh? Richard will have an extra viewer that week.

    James Acaster is one of the contestants this week by the way, so worth tuning in for him alone. If you don't know who James Acaster is, you're missing out, he's easily one of the best comedians out there at the moment.


  • Registered Users Posts: 43,449 ✭✭✭✭ Basq


    ^ Was a very nice surprise alright when I threw on the episode yesterday evening.

    The level of geography on HoG is notably awful likewise history.

    Comedians seem to do disproportionately well
