We’re back with more HOT consumer advice for you, the viewer. Released in December last year, Papa’s Quiz is a party game quiz you play on your phones Jackbox style with more than a hint of Buzz! about it, but what it lacks in that game’s slickness makes up for with quirky charm, category jostling and dance moves (probably could do with more to be honest). £9.29 pro-o-o-bably a bit high given you can get actual Jackbox for less with a sale, but there are less entertaining things you can spend your money on.
Guess who’s just recorded and uploaded and realised he wasn’t capturing everyone else’s chat. The game speaks for itself well enough though.
“The makers of The Big Narstie Show, Steph’s Packed Lunch, and Mel Giedroyc’s Unforgivable urgently need pairs of contestants (who live together or are part of the same bubble) to take part in a run-through of an exciting new quiz format NEXT WEDNESDAY (24th March) from 2pm until 6pm.
This is a fun and light-hearted show (think Catchphrase, Family Fortunes or Supermarket Sweep). You don’t need amazing general knowledge, just big energy and a willingness to join in.
The run-through won’t be recorded, but it should be an entertaining afternoon. Participants will be reimbursed for reasonable travel expenses within London, and paid a small fee for their time, with a further cash prize for the winners.
The Masked Singer won Best Entertainment, “which judges described as “a smartly produced, joyful, silly, escapist family watch…and just what we all need right now.”” It is unknown which judges thought Billie Piper was one of the contestants.
The Ranganation won best Comedy Entertainment, which is relevant for Trousers or No Trousers. “Judges praised the “genuinely funny, laugh-out loud event – the perfect showcase for the huge talent of its star.” I wonder if they’ll bother going back to the in-person format of the first series after restrictions as the current method seems to work quite well for them.
Joe Lycett’s Got Your Back won Formatted Popular Factual, which isn’t really relevant to our tastes but I wanted to big it up because it is good. Also it sounds like Joe Lycett’s Get Your Own Back, which I think we’d all watch.
Channel of the Year is BBC1 for it’s brave scheduling of Gordon Ramsay’s Bank Balance, probably.
Look forward to all of these shows – and more! – adding a RTS Award Winner badge to their title sequences and break bumpers in due course.
Haven’t done one of these for a while and I’ve also been meaning to to this for a while, it’s The Krypton Factor on the ZX Spectrum. Difficult to do this remotely with other people because of the physical elements so it’s just me on my own I’m afraid.
