So if you’re looking for a cheap way to watch Comedy Central’s upcoming Gods of the Game starting March 9th, from the people behind Bother’s Bar favourite Wild Things, there’s your (and my) in. I don’t know how long this flash sale lasts for. Edit: Looks like March 1st.
Remember to cancel your pass before the two months is up or you’ll be charged £8.99 per month until you do (although perhaps you’ll be alright with that).
Here’s a show that sets its stall out quickly: C4 newsreader Jon Snow’s here and he’s going to be asking some very hard questions. For an hour.
Two teams will be battling it out in what looks like a single-elimination knockout tournament for a trophy (if the advert is anything to go by).
They’re bigging up the questions, so we’re intrigued to see if they’re actually as difficult as they say they are, and if they are is it still fun and entertaining? Say what you like about Only Connect, but the creativity on show with regards to the questions still makes it an intriguing watch even if you don’t know the answers. I hope it’s not just Slow University Challenge.
I won’t be able to watch the first ones live, so I’m interested in your thoughts, do leave them in the comments.
Possibly of interest (we have mentioned them before), Jelle’s Marble Runs, a Youtube channel that specialises in lengthy marble courses to entertain and amuse, have followed up their Marble Olympics series with the inaugural Marbula 1 race this weekend just gone. I love the opening ceremony and the high drama the race provides.
But WOAH-WOAH-WOAH, what’s this that’s come up in my Youtube recommendations? From a fortnight ago?
Are you aware of a board game called Wavelength? It’s a panel show waiting to happen. In it, a person is given an abstract scale (say “dry – wet”, “fantasy – sci-fi”, “bad actor – good actor”) and is randomly set a target on that scale. They have to come up with a thing that they think would sit on that scale at the point that had been randomly selected and their teammates must try and accurately judge where the target is. It’s great fun and has a whizzy mechanical set-piece to boot.
There is no way Big Break is just a five.
And apologies in advance for all the page jumping abouts in the comments linking to several Twitter posts will provide.
