I think it probably goes in at about third or fourth for me, though I won't see the last episode until tonight.

I think recording with isolation measures in place has affected the quality. Some of the tasks in the last few episodes were really poor.

Agreed. Very much a middle tier series for me.

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

She's easily the most annoying contestant the show has ever had.

Fantastic series, probably my favourite.

Katherine is hilarious, so bloody useless but then the odd spark of genius (the clothes rail) :lol:

I saw Daisy was top trending on Twitter last night and so assumed that person was the winner. I'm glad it wasn't as it was a good surprise!

Agree with that I think! We’re up to S7 on our rewatch so she’s coming up soon...

I would agree, I was concerned about Daisy and Mawaan but all contestants came good. Johnny falling over in ep 8 was definitely a highlight

Massively excited to hear that Lee Mack is in the next series.

I agree with others on the tasks this season being a bit poor, my worry is that this will continue on with the next series and the Xmas special due to covid.

The tension in the final task was slightly ruined for me because someone I follow tweeted congratulations to the series winner before I got chance to watch it.

A bit surprised that so many here don’t know Mike Wozniak. Didn’t you watch Man Down?

I think people do know him, he just got overshadowed a bit by Steve Jobs.

I don't recognise a single one of the new lineup besides Lee Mack.

Mind you, I'd never heard of Mawaan before this series and I loved him to bits, so I'll reserve judgement.

Same here. Never even heard of any of the others.

This is me for most series, but I end up loving comedians I previously never knew of.

I was always surprised Dara O'Briain was never on the show when it was on Dave.

Theres a rule of Taskmaster that if someone asks to be on the show they won't be invited and are kinda blacklisted. They only put people on the show they personally find funny. The only celeb I know of who was pressured by the channel to be on was Dave Gorman and he said he didn't really enjoy it as it wasn't really his kind of thing.

Yep, I've watched a few episodes of the New Zealand version and it's still really entertaining without knowing the comedians.

Definitely worth a watch if anybody is looking for some more taskmaster btw

There are international versions of Taskmaster?

Yep https://www.reddit.com/r/panelshow/comm ... la_dravid/

List of international versions

Some people have subtitled some foreign episodes if you search on that subreddit. The US version seems like garbage from what I've heard of it, mostly thanks to the host and one of the female comedian's whole schtick being "I'm angry and sexist"

Richard Herring has been asking to go on for years.
