Round-up 19/12/17

By | December 19, 2017

Let’s have a round up:

  • Release the Hounds returns to ITV2 in January.
  • Laura Whitmore will be hosting ITV2’s upcoming battle-of-the-sexes reality show Survival of the Fittest.
  • Good news for table tennis fans everywhere, Blind Date has been recommissioned for 12 more episodes for Channel 5.
  • Wie is de Mol? is going to Georgia and Belgian De Mol is going to Mexico. This year I will set up discussion pages for both as they’re both great but slightly different takes on the same show, WidM begins January 6th (I believe), DM begins in February.
  • Thinking caps on, it’s almost time for the’s Bar Poll of 2017.
  • Has anyone watched [Atari] Codebreaker on Discovery Science yet? Worthwhile? Here’s the site.

        Same reason I know that the finale is March 10th at VondelCS again.

    Codebreaker: first half is a science-ish quiz, using a touch-screen on single-answer and sequence questions. Back half is fun with integer sequences, with the prospect of a big prize for the winner.

    A decent way to spend a half hour: the questions are interesting without being too hard, and there’s genuine tension towards the end. On the negative side, I found it more frantic than it needs to be, and the final is often an anti-climax – either the player gets it and knows they’ll win the big prize, or they’re flailing around in the dark.

    Martin Cole hosts, a friendly and ebullient presenter. He’s the best thing about the show – watchable, but nowhere near appointment to view.
