(how does VCM not know how a swannee whistle works?)

two weeks pass...

david docherty cycles somewhere with someone. same kind of energy as gone fishing or travel man (or ed ventures) i guess. props (or the opposite) to ayoade for doing the whole thing on a brompton.

Yeah I caught the second half of that, a nice gentle wind down after the episode of Succession I had been watching. I vastly prefer Docherty when he's not singing and playing his annoying little keyboard.

I haven't seen DoD yet, but I'd draw a distinction between Ed Ventures and Travel Man - you're dependent on the quality of the guests in the first, whereas interesting things can happen on a Travel Man episode even if the guest is a complete waste like Rob Beckett

The final noise making task was a classic, and I've never in my life laughed nearly as much at Alan Davies.

Not overly enamoured by next year's line-up.

i think my highlight of the series was VCM learning to ride a bike there and then.

koogs, Friday, 26 November 2021 05:45 (one month ago) link

VCM, even until the end, said at least one task every week was "impossible" and didn't really engage while we watched everyone else get on with it.

I think I would have been happy with any of the other 4 as series champions to be honest.

Not overwhelmed by the new lineup, although Bridget Christie is fine in other people's things I find her own material a bit hectoring. Don't think I know Sophie Duker at all.

Long enough attention span for a Stephen Bissette blu-ray extra (aldo), Friday, 26 November 2021 09:55 (one month ago) link

Sophie Duker is great.

Daniel_Rf, Friday, 26 November 2021 09:56 (one month ago) link

oh fuck tho, Ardal O’Hanlon? Worst stand-up I've ever experienced in my life.

Daniel_Rf, Friday, 26 November 2021 09:57 (one month ago) link

Her and the bloke who isn't Father Dougal I don't know.


chap, Friday, 26 November 2021 09:58 (one month ago) link

Judi Love is pretty annoying.

Sophie Duker is a regular guest on Frankie Boyle's New World Order (and is the only one I predicted in our annual game of "who hasn't done Taskmaster yet that they might get for the next series"). Seems OK. Absolutely unenthused about any of them though.

VCM might be my least favourite contestant ever.

The other bloke is Chris Ramsey (Hebburn, Shagged Married Annoyed podcast, surprisingly decent on Strictly a few years ago). He might be ok.

Judi Love is really annoying, yes.

iirc this thread was tepid at best on at least the last two rosters as well and the show turned out all right anyway

Daniel_Rf, Friday, 26 November 2021 10:08 (one month ago) link

how has this thread managed to have not one post about Stath Lets Flats S3 in it

anyway it was good, episode 4 was completely classic, and there's a moment in episode 5 (the 'long boy' bit) that might be the funniest ten seconds in post-millennial UK comedy

imago, Friday, 26 November 2021 11:06 (one month ago) link

I think I must be in the minority, because I found Stath a bit lacklustre this time round. The jumping in the canal bit positively annoyed me, it was so stupid. Although their Youtube channel is just fantastic.

trishyb, Friday, 26 November 2021 12:00 (one month ago) link

Idk, that canal-jumping episode felt like the demented all-out antic climax of the entire thing before the last two episodes played it more sentimental

imago, Friday, 26 November 2021 12:14 (one month ago) link

The series as a whole maybe used the slow-motion-with-song effect a bit much but that's nitpicking

imago, Friday, 26 November 2021 12:15 (one month ago) link

Maybe I'm a man of simple tastes, but I pissed myself at the canal jumping.

chap, Friday, 26 November 2021 18:24 (one month ago) link

I go up and down on the show but every episode there's two or three genius turns of phrase that makes me love it

kinder, Friday, 26 November 2021 19:05 (one month ago) link

it felt like it was trying harder this season and going heavier toward the conceptual but i enjoyed it even so

DoD biking with grayson

i had to rewind it and watch it again and he really did say 'that's eight pounds' for what looked like 2 ninety-nines.

Question Team. the moment the penny dropped during isy's round was a delight.

manford and mack on the same team on Christmas 8/10 cats. in what way is this a "special"?

Toast, episode 3 and surprise! clem fandango is in LA

except it was in every single trailer for the last two months.

koogs, Wednesday, 19 January 2022 20:05 (four days ago) link

I thought Toast was fine - bit more coherent than other seasons, bit less grotesque. It's the only version of Matt Berry I can tolerate for some reason, odd considering that most versions of Matt Berry are identical
