    I see what you did there.

    The Chase for me every time.
    Used to watch Pointless but Richard Osman, who I'd never heard of before, after since seeing him on other shows I now find annoying.

    The Chase has got it all in light entertainment for me.
    Quiz, humour, decent banter from the Chasers, Bradley Walsh and the contestants.

    Bradley Walsh is the best compere in the business IMO, a complete natural and naturally funny.

    I like House of Games, but it doesn't half make me feel old and they assume everyone has read everything Roald Dahl ever wrote when I've not read a word of his stuff.

    Despite telling every contestant who gets a grand/2 grand in the cash builder round, “You’re a better player than that”. No they’re not Bradley, that why they only knew one or two f*cking answers.

    Well he's hardly going to say "two grand, feckin two grand you dozy cow!" as nobody will ever have a go for fear of thinking they're not clever enough.

    I've noticed that if a contestant gets an easy question wrong in the cash builder because they have either mis-heard it or didn't get the connotation they go to pieces but it's doesn't make them thick, they just can't handle the moment.

    I do feel for Shaun "fifty five, fifty five thousand at times as Walsh ruins him all the time.

    You're right. Contestants have to be able to demonstrate general knowledge ability to get on the show in the first place. TV cameras do things to some people. I'd fancy my chances on there but I could well end up with questions I have no idea about, might not get on with the cameras and the situation, and look like an absolute tool.

    Re: Does anybody watch pointless ?

    I watch it every evening but still fail to find Jenny ‘The Vixen’ Ryan as attractive as Bradley makes out and who is this mystery Chaser? Him or her are mentioned every episode but are yet to make an appearance. It really is a ‘shout at the telly’ show, whether deriding a contestant or disagreeing with Bradley’s opinion of the contestant’s calibre. The Beast seems to be a prick of a man in my opinion borne out by an incident my mate had with him once.

    You watch it every night, but you don't know who the Chaser is?

    It's quite easy to imagine your mind going blank under the time pressure and the bright lights.

    I agree. She's overweight and self-opinionated bitch. Thinks she's better than she actually is.

    Do you? When they go through the ‘Who will you be taking on?’ part of the show after the first contestant’s cash builder, every Chaser is shown but recently there’s been a blanked out face and Bradley says ‘Will it be the new mystery Chaser?’ So, yes I watch it every evening yet the mystery Chaser hasn’t come forward yet.

    Re: Does anybody watch pointless ?

    I enjoy Pointless, we record it and watch it later in the evening so you can fast forward through the talking bits. I got a couple of pointless answers the other night naming players from the Liverpool - Roma European cup final in 1984

    Ninian Park was a pointless answer re. Railway stations of the UK.

He made some sarky comments, anyway, a store official came over after overhearing the raised voices and had the event explained to her, The Beast came out with the classic ‘Do you know who I am ? I want these people removed from this shop’, fair play to the store official, she told him that he’d have to do his shopping at Sainsbury or Asda from now on as he wasn’t welcome. The man came over as a self important bully.

    Good idea, I like the format but it suffers from the same thing as most gameshows in that I don't give a shit what the contestants have been up to I only want some questions to answer.

    Fair enough

    I haven't seen it the recent ones, I thought you were confused by the concept of a chaser

    Quiz shows have a ratio of questions apparently - how many questions per ten minutes of show (or something).

    The Chase has a pretty good ratio, better than most on TV recently. Who Wants To Be A Millionaire had a really low one.

    I think Fifteen To One had one of the highest of all time.
