I expect many of you are thinking "DAVID MITCHELL!!??"

MaisonLazlique - 02 Aug 2011 09:06:24 (#3 of 2682)

Most are thinking "ANOTHER SERIES!!?"

While others are trying to eradicate even the most fleeting of sub-conscious images of halfnelson dressed as a cheerleader with the strongest bleach money can buy.

I love Only Connect.

Particularly the missing vowels round. I appear to be shit hot at that.

yay for Only Connect. That and Pointless are the only quiz shows I watch.

Go Vicky! Go Vicky! Don't break our hearts Vicky!

Last time I watched this I actually got a few questions right. Was rather pleased with myself. Compare the questions on this to Weakest Link which run largely along the lines of "What is your name?" and "What is a thing".

If they broadcast them in the order they were filmed, and the series starts on the 15th, MrT999 should appear on the 29th.

VendorOfQuackNostrum - 02 Aug 2011 22:57:30 (#11 of 2682)

Right, having now had a look at the BBC Four schedules, yesterday was a repeat of a special show and labelled 2/4. Looking forward to 8th August, that's another special repeat and labelled as 3/4. I reckon that 15th August will be the last special repeat, and Series 5 starts on 22nd August.

Which puts MrT999 on 5th September.

"What is a thing"



Blimey.

Excellent. Casa Catsmeat will resound to cries of "smug-smug-smuggity-smug" when we get the hard link ones right before the teams. And I like the missing vowels round too.

I give up - what's the TSTS? (I'm usually pretty good at the missing vowels, too...)

VendorOfQuackNostrum - 08 Aug 2011 07:06:05 (#15 of 2682)

Well, tonight's show is billed as episode 3/4, but series 5 does indeed start next week, with Social Networkers vs Vegetarians.

davidt999's team is called the Listeners, fyi.

Do they still have the Egyptian hieroglyphics?

quartus - 08 Aug 2011 19:18:35 (#19 of 2682)

we'll have to wait til August 15th. Tonight's airing (8.30?) is a repeat.

VendorOfQuackNostrum - 08 Aug 2011 21:45:49 (#20 of 2682)

Yes.
