ONE MUST LOSE.
I'm torn by unversity allegiance and indie respect.
then the jofo t-shirt made me think twice
Guttenplan annoys me, he's a smug bastard and will almost certainly be a millionaire by the time he's 25.
My favourite programme for sure.
i knew that AG-silver question after two seconds. Guttenplan is the only one with more than half a brain.
Not at the same time mind, I wasn't kept down 9 years or anything.
Probably should have been though.
Is someone in the audience mouthing the answers to Guttenplan? He keeps looking over.
I love his vacant, mouth-half-open, gormless puss after he's answered something correctly.
Emma would have been out weeks ago. Harris, the girl to his right, is a massive gimp. Guttenplan himself is adorable.
Final next week: St John's Ox vs Emma Cambridge. I#m going for Oxford, as there's a girl from my school on that team! :)
allowing himself to be a blank slate as it speaks through him. I really wanted to punch Harris right in her smug face. I'm just a neanderthal compared to her though.
Although, judging by her teeth, it looks like somebody has beaten us to it. Also, I LOLd at how hard she pressed the buzzer for the opening question.
my girlfriend's friend saw Whyman at a gig, and recognised him off of the telly because she bloody loves university challenge, and bugged him to have her picture taken with him. He was all acting like a big time charlie and trying to run away.
great effort in the series. That Guttenplan fella is a machine!
or at least he used to be. He put TTNG and Jonquil on in Manchester a few years ago. Nice chap, and a pleasant surprise to see him on TV the other week.
Seems to be pretty good with the literary/historical questions.
Guttenplan is pretty ridiculous. I'm looking forward to the final next week. Woodhuysen (I think that's the spelling) vs Guttenplan, should be a more even match up than last night. St John's seem to have a wider breadth of knowledge across the whole team, whereas Emmanuel appear to rely heavily on Guttenplan (who admittedly is some kind of crazy genuis) and Harris. Should be a close contest.
Also, I think St John's has some pretty good 'characters' as well. Chen and the 70's safari Wolverine action figure, are both ace.
St John's for the win!
No shit, Sherlock.
the fat posh blonde geezer must be shitting himself.
Boat race on Saturday, then UC show down on Monday. COME ON YOU LIGHT BLUES.
although in fairness, I'm unlikely to actually watch the race.
he's an excellent man.
