I actually thought this was one of the poorer episodes. Rob Brydon does nothing for me and wouldn't shut up and let Bill Bailey and Rich Hall get a word in. As these are the funniest regulars it was a waste.
And Alan Davies and Stephen Fry seemed to be ****** off at each other.
is there anything that steven fry does'nt know?
in the words of mr dury 'there aint half been some cleaver bastards'
......wonder if he knows its impossible for anyone to lick there own....elbow
apparantly 80% of people told this, immediately try it.
This is the best 'quiz' of recent years. It has - shock - real questions and the contestants - horror - try to answer them! Also, it is not a swear-fest (usually) and shows signs of intelligence. Strewth!
One thing that always gets me crying with laughter is Stephen Fry's impressions of Robert Robinson.
Agreed about Alan Davies. He just puts the daftness on.
yeah but Alan Davies is there to be Stephen Fry's foil. Fry can use him as a stupid child he can chastise (and this is usually funny). In one of the previous series, Davies tried to make a Quite Interesting point about a new born kangaroo moving direct to its mother's pouch. Fry gave him a condesending look and stated that 'even unborn foetus's know that'. Marvellous!
Missed this myself, but I'll catch up with it. For all AD's obvious dumbing down, there are a few moments when he makes a gem of a comment. I always judge AD by SF's reaction, you do see him genuinely laugh sometimes.
Anyone think, that when we eventually (if at all) get through to the end of the alphabet, with Series 26 and the letter Z, that the BBC might bother to release a complete QI Alphabet DVD/HD-DVD/whatever other format we watch the show on for home viewing release, with every show from all 26 series?!
That would be quite interesting, especially having to see how we all get it delivered, or bring it home from the shops.
P.S. I think that Jo Brand's a good foil for Alan and Stephen, when she's on the show! Loved the recent episode when she had a go at Stephen about whether someone might be mad, or actually suffering from a mental health issue. Certainly pulled poor Stephen down a peg or two.
