Monday to Thursday, 8pm, for two weeks,
(Except for viewers in Wales in which case eps 1-4 are Tuesday-Friday 6:30pm),
Join Dara O’Briain and eight families across the two weeks as they battle it out to
be called Britain’s Brightest Family win The Family Brain Games.
Still don’t think the title shouts mass appeal. However it’s got the ever popular Dara and the games look quite good in the adverts.
It’s also quite interestingly scheduled, almost weekdaily across the next two weeks, heats in the first week, three-semis (with the four winners and two best runners up) and three-way final in week two. That’s quite brave, especially for a show like this, although if it does look like taking off that’d give BBC2 a decent annual returning strand alongside the likes of Springwatch.
Of course we can’t not mention that Friend of the Bar David Bodycombe is a consultant and commentator on this. This will not stop us being FEARLESS in taking it apart if it’s rubbish though.
Let us know what you think in the comments.
