Specials Board

The specials board is where you can find all of our feature content – opinion, shows from around the world you’ve seen somewhere before, and shows you really probably won’t have. The bracketted date is the year the feature originally went up.

The old features will be tidied up and added over the coming days and weeks, in the meantime…

PODCASTS

qqqlogoWe did some Podcasts for a format called The Line Up in 2012 and 2013, meant to be an amazing pub quiz. It was quite good fun, here are the episode guides with links to mp3s should you fancy a listen. Questions provided by the lovely QuizQuizQuiz.com.

VIDEOS

A MAN WALKS INTO A BAR…
Brig Bother conducts HARD-HITTING interviews with some of the genre’s leading lights.

  • Tim Child gave us a terrifically candid interview for the 20th anniversary of Knightmare. (2007)
  • Peter Davey – talks to us about The Mole, inventing I’m a Celebrity…, Playing it Straight and Beauty and the Geek. My first ‘proper’ interview, and also one of my faves. (2006)
  • Phil Edgar-JonesI got hilariously drunk and e-mailed Phil for an interview. He kindly agreed. It’s basically me yapping on about how Big Brother wasn’t as good as it used to be, and basically is a fairly terrible interview if I’m being honest. (2007)
  • Glenn HugillThis was a fun interview, Glenn agreed to be interviewed for Deal or No Deal‘s first anniversary. There’s also some stuff about The Mole and you’ll be pleased to hear I’m much better at poker now. (2006)
  • Mat Steiner – A light interview to promote the Release the Hounds app. (2014)

DEAL OR NO DEAL AROUND THE WORLD
Bother’s Bar was well ahead of the game when it came to Deal or No Deal, we had experienced versions from other countries a good 18 months before it hit the UK. Why not join us as we take a look at some of them?

FORT BOYARD
Fort Boyard is one of the most important television shows in the history of the world ever, and it’s testament to the show’s power that it’s still being made twenty-years later. Here are some features I have written about the show.

DIFFERENT PEOPLE, DIFFERENT NATIONS, DIFFERENT GAMES!
A section dedicated to various versions of shows from around the world different to our own. You’ll know the show, but you probably won’t have seen it like this!

WORLD O’ GAME
Formats unknown to the UK.

SEASON COMMENTARIES

For (mainly) foreign shows we especially like and follow we’ll set up a separate page for discussion of the season. You can find those here.

IPOD, THEREFORE I AM

We used to have a separate page for iPod stuff but as it goes out of date so quickly I’m retiring it and sticking everything in here. New reviews of apps will be integrated into the main site under the iPod, therefore I am category clicking on that link should direct you to the newest posts.
