Dave and on demand on UKTV Play.
We’re super pleased for the return of last year’s surprise hit, which ranked second on the OFFICIAL list of last year’s best new gameshow formats. Another five comics (Doc Brown, Jon Richardson, Katherine Ryan, Joe Wilkinson and TV’s hardest working man Richard Osman) are challenged to complete in often absurd challenges testing skill, wit and creativity and then argue with Taskmaster Greg Davies and assistant Alex Horne over the results, frequently pushing the boundaries of the rules if not always managing to stay in the spirit of them.
Last year’s shows were funny, inventive and surprising and had a really good cast, we’re hoping for more of the same. It’s probably the closest we have to an Asian style variety show, not withstanding Cats Does Countdown and Top Gear.
If you can’t wait for episode one, it’s actually been up on UKTV Play as a series preview but we’ve not watched it yet because UKTV Play isn’t on Roku and I can’t be bothered to plug my Fire Stick in. Or watch it sitting in front of a computer. I think this sort of thing is better watching as a shared experience anyway, which is my other excuse and I’m sticking to it.
I would ask in this instance not to spoil specifics until it’s gone out on television, but people have suggested the first episode is very funny.
