To be fair to them, they didn't tinker with Great British Bake-off at all and that is exactly the same, apart from losing some of the hosts.Apparently Channel 4 are buying the format after this series having turned it down originally. Hope they don't mess around with it
I think that was presenters and judge throwing their toys out of the pram, rather than editorial decisions. Although i'm not sure if Mel & Sue might have been contracted to the BBC???To be fair to them, they didn't tinker with Great British Bake-off at all and that is exactly the same, apart from losing some of the hosts.
It's the exact same format.
Yup. It will be bought in off the shelf I would have thought. Should be exactly the same.I think that was presenters and judge throwing their toys out of the pram, rather than editorial decisions. Although i'm not sure if Mel & Sue might have been contracted to the BBC???
I'm sure it will still be Avalon productions doing Taskmaster (who i think is Frank Skinner's company), so they would be quite averse to changing it. Let's hope not.
Dave is partly owned by the BBC, so it's about time they got themselves in gear and bid for it!ITV apparently in the mix for it too, that one would definitely worry me.
And no doubt Michael feckin McIntyreDave is partly owned by the BBC, so it's about time they got themselves in gear and bid for it!
A different channel would mean a different set of comedians? It's a programme that doesn't need 'stars', but suddenly I could see Harry Hill and David Walliams turning up on it...
Yup. And the 'famous' ones have generally been quite happy to show themselvces as shit, too. David Baddiel's been uniquely awful this season, but it's made it all the more watchable for it!It's only as good as the tasks and AH seems to have a never ending supply of ways to make them look silly. Some of the best people throughout have in fairness been those I barely recognise or wasn't really looking forward to. If it does go the mainstream route I'm sure it would find a new audience and the ratings wouldn't suffer, but I think it would be finished for me.
Uktvplay. I didn't get it for a long time, but it's really good. This series as goid a place to start as any, there's no narrative, so you can go and watch the other series in any order you like reallyNever seen this. Sounds great. Is it on catchup anywhere? If so where’s the best place to start? Season 1 or should i jump in later?
Who was in 4 and 6?I'd put forward any series bar maybe 4 and 6 which were dips in quality of contestant but still quite good with it.
Ah, but Joe Brand is just being Jo Brand.Favourites include Tim Key, Joe Wilkinson, Paul Chowdhry, Bob Mortimer (candidate for the best person alive), Sally Phillips, Liza Tarbuck, James Acaster, Jessica Knappett, Rhod Gilbert, Rose Matafeo, Joe Thomas (candidate for most awkward person alive) and David Baddiel who's absolutely useless but seems to be having a whale of a time.
Favourite series is between 1,2 5 and 7, least favourite is 4 as nobody stood out as particularly good. Only people I've not really liked were Russell Howard, Iain Stirling and increasingly Jo Brand who's taken 'can't be arsed' too far.
Genuinely brilliant moment. His sheer joy was so crushedI think one of my favourite moments was Joe Wilkinson with his toe on the red carpet. Hard to call a favourite series because there have been great moments in all of them but this one has to be up there.
It was embarrassingly bad wasn't it. It looked even worse because Ed Gamble's one just before was so good.Caught the last one now. I've said that I like David Baddiel, but his chickpea task has to be by far the least funny thing to ever appear on an episode.
