because whenever I've caught any of it I've thoughy it was fucking shit, but I may just be out of the loop.
they just have bants and shabs and are mad for the craic. But being as none of them are very funny, the bits where they have mad funny bants aren't really funny.
It's just a sports panel show that's gotten increasingly lighthearted over the years, I think. That's why it tends to be on at like half 7 and shit.
which predates the comedy panel show format somewhat.
and he took the 8 year old boy from up the road it was weird
Sue Barker's nice though, isn't she
Matt Dawson is rubbish. They should replace him with Neil Ruddock.
He is essentially a bald George Osbourne.
the McCoist/Parrot era was great and I am just about old enough to remember Beaumont/Botham
Haven't watched it in ages but it is always great when they have some dashing foreigner e.g. David Ginola on and Barker gets all flustered
They should get Arshavin on it
and revealed that Sue Barker tells them the answers before she asks them the questions. At that point my faith was shattered.
*It never had any magic. It has always been awful.
every time some random sportsman/woman completely straight face answers a question about some obscure sport they have no knowledge of and get it right?
How do they decide which question to get wrong?
it's always depressing at the start when you realise the guests are a gymnast, swimmer, equestrianist & canoeist and you aren't going to know half of what's going on
In every other one I can think of, the scoring is pretty much a charade. Either the contestants don't care about them, or else so much is edited out to make a half-hour show that the points don't add up.
as above, it is supposed to be a proper quiz show which happens to get sidelined by 'witty banter' these days
also something about sportsfolk being competitive
(and they shouldn't allow non-sportsfolk on just because they once watched a football match on the telly)
It's like that table of loud smug southerners that all seem to find eachother hilarious, but no-one else does.
I hate it with a passion.
If I found out any of my friends watched it, I'd phase them out.
how can Sue Barker find everything _that_ funny otherwise?
they never choose away in the home or away round
I refuse to believe they actually manage to guess the mystery guest as often as they do just from a close up of their arse and a out of focus shot of their ear
You watch, most weeks there'll be a slightly out of focus shot of THEIR WHOLE FACE within seconds.
Sports people are just stupid and can only focus on their own sport mainly.
I used to find it funny when it was McCoist and John Parrot. It slowly got worse until Dawson came in and it became UNBEARABLE. I can sometimes watch bits of it now and again, but it's definitely not funny, and i really like sport.
You really should get into sport just to truly experience it's brilliance.
