I wasn’t in the best of moods anyway but it barely raised a smile from me.

Arguably it's the worst season so far. Of course we're only three episodes in and that may change.

Charlotte's clock was the highlight for me. Genuinely didn't know about that knuckle thing Sarah did either. Mind blown. A little bit disappointed that Greg didn't destroy Jamali for getting the concept of leap years wrong in his message.

It was a weak episode overall. The airport task in particular was badly filmed which made it difficult to follow. There are always weak episodes though. I don't know how they decide which task goes where.

All a bit of a damp squib so far this season. No chemistry or fury between the contestants which doesn't help.

Lacking a spark isn't it? Doesn't help that only two of the contestants are funny (Lee and Mike).

Yeah I'm not liking this one either. I really think the show loses some of the energy by not having the live audience.

I’m enjoying Sarah Kendall and not really loving Mike so much, he’s trying to affect a “zany middle manager” thing and I dunno if it’s working for me.

Yeah its not been the best. I’m not sure if its the tasks or contestants bonding. With covid it was always going to be different.

Although premature conker made me chuckle

It seems like social distancing is wreaking havoc with a few aspects of the show, to be honest. It’s not been a fantastic season.

I am just hoping that this doesn’t get the show cancelled

I don't think there's really anything wrong with this series, it's obviously not the best but it's certainty hasn't been the worst either. They're doing the best they can with rules that are out of their control.

Having said that though, Channel 4 have also been doing Celebrity Bake Off which hasn't had any social distancing in it so maybe they could have worked something out to do the team tasks normally.

I'm having some very confusing feelings about Sarah Kendall

It's not as good as the last series, but it's a long way from being a disaster. It's still one of the best shows on TV at the moment.
