Seriously... what the fuck is this programme about? i thought i had an idea... but it appears that i still don't.
...of a quiz show which exists purely as a vehicle for Victoria Coren's ball-breaking smugness. You do get a fair amount of self-satisfaction from answering the questions correctly but it's basically a lod of cod-intellectual blancmange which is dull and irritating to watch.
It's a game show where you have to use lateral thinking to figure out the connections between seemingly unrelated words and concepts - as suggested by the title itself.
And Victoria Coren is so posh and her jokes so devoid of timing and delivery that it's made her fit. Except that posh people cannot be fit - she is instead 'totty'.
I did a piece about how I liked Only Connect, but ultimately thought it was rubbish, and ended up getting really narky comments from question setter whinging about how good the ratings were.
Anyone who says otherwise is objectively wrong
