I haven't watched it in years, there's a number of quiz shows where I can't help thinking they could be shorter or have an extra round without all the waffling. Pointless is ridiculous for this, it comes on at 5:15 and only really gets going about 10 minutes later after they've introduced all the guests, told you their life stories and then the two presenters have flirted with each other. That show could be half an hour long or have an extra round. I seem to remember when it first started it did have an extra couple on it and had another round. Also why does that show need two presenters? There only needs to be one. 

Karen?- PAUSE- remind us -PAUSE- what you do again- PAUSE 


they come swinging round that corner, they think they're benny goodman

Yep that's the catchphrase of Alexander Armstrong. I'd forgotten actually that they introduce them all and then get into the round and then the first round takes half the show cos of all the talking. One of the most annoying things on that show as well is when they put the clues up on the board but then have the camera on the waffling contestant so we viewers at home can't look at the clues and take part at home. Especially annoying with picture rounds.

Don!t forget....and if you won , what would you like to spend the money on ?I don!t think Alexander Armstrong strays far from saying the same stock phrases every show , still prefer him to his super smug mate though .

Pointless just annoys me , if I put it on now it’s near the end when the thick people are out . Honestly where do they get some of these ... and plenty are students doing really critical courses like ‘ beauty and make up studies ‘ or something and know literally nowt . I can’t stand the unhilarious banter between the presenters , and really Osman is the most pointless thing of all . He must be the smuggest man in the history of television , letting on he knows everything when he’s sitting in front of a computer screen . And then there’s his totally unfunny jokes and I’m so funny smug look . Alexander Armstrong just looks like he’s going through the motions ‘ remind us what you do again ... not like I remotely care ‘ . Ooh and what would you do if you won £1000 jackpot .. go to Australia ...?  lovely

You should be nominated for the New Years honours list . That’s worthy of an MBE . At least most people had them drip fed over 9 years

I watched the entire thing in about a month at the start of lockdown though I haven't got anything else going on at the moment aside from just sitting on my backside, getting fat and watching TV. That is the summary of my 2020.

Excellent Count Basie documentary on BBC4 last night.  In 1959, at the tender age of 13, sitting in my bedroom listening to VOA on shortwave on an old radio instead of doing my school homework I heard The Kid From Red Bank, and was hooked from that moment on. 

Regarding Pointless, don't be so ******* miserable. Currently it's a better watch than the news. 😀😀😀😀

I see your Mrs Brown’s Boys and raise you the new Walking Dead spin-off. I can’t see any excuse for a programme this bad. It doesn’t even have bad-programme parody value.

Watched S3 ep1 of Star Trek Discovery. It’s turned into a remake of Andromeda with a bit less cheese. I guess the Roddenberry stuff has to be wrung out a bit further.

I didn’t mind Andromeda, it was just too squeaky in its morals. I sincerely hope this doesn’t go that way.

What really annoyed me about S2 was the over-dramatic scenes. e.g. the last episode full of standing around in mutual admiration while explosions In space probably meaning lots of people dying in the background. And...

if they killed the evil AI, why did they still need to go into the future? And why were they still going there anyway even when they knew the AI was onboard?

Currently working my way through a re-watch of Lexx. Seasons 1-3 are on Amazon.

I started season 4 (which is not on Amazon, but watchable on a free, ad-supported service) last night, and there is a cameo appearance by Craig Charles and Hattie Hayridge, who were making 'Red Dwarf' at the time.

Started series two of The Alienist last night . After series one was around a serial killer killing and mutilating boy prostitutes , this one is heading into murdering babies territory . Strong stuff but compelling viewing with our heroic trio of investigators on the case

I do not watch the BBC Death to all News thread anymore, all it talks about is how many people are supposed to be dying of Covid-19 while the reporters are nice & safe.

Two contestants on Tipping Point have just answered this question. Which is the northernmost county in England. Contestant number 1 answered Norfolk, contestant number 2 answered Birmingham.

I despair 🤷‍♂️
