I recorded it and am watching now. First two rounds were rip offs of Len Goodman and that Benchmark show that Paddy McGuinness came up with. ;)

Had this set to series link, just checked my Sky box and it's there so I'll watch it later and report on my thoughts. :D

One man should not have this much power in this game. Luckily I'm not an ordinary man.

Can't ask for much more than that!


How does it look on TV compared to when you were working on it, DML?

Its certainly snappier. You can appreciate the iPad rounds better when they are cut to time believe me!

Pretty good. Have to say I didn't shine in any of those rounds, though.

Richard Osman was bearable and not as smug as he can be

Not a huge fan of contestants though.

Nish- who? Not a fan
Old crypt keeper woman - get to strawberry float, useless.
Clara - don't like her on the radio, don't like her on this
Al Murray - like him, he was good

The games are all decent enough and fun to play along to but most of them/the concepts appear to be ripped straight from Sporcle games.

Al's laugh at chicken milk :lol:

Would watch again

I liked it but the atmosphere felt a bit flat, I think an audience would have helped that. But I like the constantly changing games, should keep it interesting so Ill continue to watch.

Congrats. Just caught up on iPlayer and enjoyed it very much. I think Osman is really decent too, don't really get the hate for him at all. Will watch again. :-)

It goes without saying thank you for all the lovely comments (except Trag) and not being a dick about things (again...sorry Trag!) and its absolutely true that without GR I probably don't have the chance to put this show out there with my colleagues.

One of my colleagues said "Did you watch that new Richard Osman quiz? It was really good!"
I told him that I didn't (sorry DML, I will..) but told him that I knew the Furry who was the brains behind it. :wub:

He seemed impressed*
GRCade is life.

[*]Not impressed.

Reporting in for tonight's. :toot:

Really enjoyed the first episode, great stuff. The only critique I have is, as others have mentioned, the audience - I reckon either have silence or (preferably, IMO) a bigger audience.

Awesome overall though cuz, proud of you. :wub:

I enjoyed the first episode but agree with the comments on the audience. At times it felt really flat as the only reactions seemed to be Nish laughing and utter silence around him.

It's a good idea to have lots of different games, it will mean every episode is different and will stop it feeling stale.

Liked that first game, good level of difficulty.

I've played this game round DML's a couple of times. :lol:
