Watching Telly: Le Maître du Jeu

By | August 11, 2022

Here’s some fun, FOTB Ryan Vickers went and saw the new Quebecoise version of Taskmaster being filmed and he’s written a report.

Watching Telly: Cheat

By | May 27, 2022

Just got back from Elstree for my first Watching Telly for several years. Exciting. They seem desperate for audience members, so if you’re free Friday/Saturday hit up SRO. So here’s a new show set to go out on Netflix whenever. Superficially it’s a bit like Bullshit – it basically involves answering questions and trying to… Read More »

Watching Telly: Go For it

By | July 21, 2016

It’s been a while since I last did one of these. This sounds like the plan is for it to be leading into The X Factor, and it sounds like they’re recording more in November which I’d guess is for leading into The Voice next year. No results will be spoiled, but as the tasks are… Read More »
