Re: Countdown


Seems they'll take ANY idea at the moment. Waiting to see how this Win Lose or Draw Something show they've got coming turns out. I'm suspecting not great.

Re: Countdown


Any idea...

EXCEPT FOR ANYTHING GOOD.

Well, I jest. I REALLY liked 5 Minutes to a Fortune and genuinely felt pretty miffed when I found out it tanked. The 5pm slot with Chase and Pointless is just too strong for Channel 4 to do anything.

We had an adaption of that show. I used to watch the German version every now and then, but it lasted just a few weeks. We had somebody who won the jackpot though.

Re: Countdown


Next week... It's Vine time!! YAY! About bloody time. It's been over two years since Tim was last on Countdown. emoticon

Well, I say next week. On Monday yes, but then it's damn horse racing the rest of the week so they kick Countdown out of the scheduals as usual. But then it looks like he'll be back for all five episodes the week after emoticon

Re: Countdown


Whoa. I almost missed that. 6,000 episodes over SEVENTY series = Guinness World Record. Alex Who?

Yeah, to be pedantic, it's more a British record rather than a world one, as Jeopardy! and Price is Right in America both far outstrip Countdown in actual episode count. Oh yeah, and last Friday was the 6,000th episode produced rather than the 6,000th regular episode. They tried to get away with that back at 5,000 and I fell for it, initially. And that's probably not counting 8 Out of 10 Cats Does Countdown somehow becoming a fully fledged spin-off series. Seriously, how the emoticon did that happen?! They do get the nod for most series, though, as we're currently in the middle of series SEVENTY ONE. That is an eye-watering tally for any TV show.

Still, Guinness Record. Yay!

Re: Countdown


The World Record was for the purely number of series, not number of episodes, so it was correct. I can't see that any other show in the world has had 70 series'. I guess they just held off awarding the certificate until the 6000th episode so they had a way of marking the occasion.

What's most surprising is that Rachel has been there for over a sixth of Countdown's total episodes.

Re: Countdown


There is a good reason to bring this topic back to life, and to watch Countdown next week...Tim Vine is back in Dictionary Corner emoticon emoticon

I was very fortunate to see him and Harry Hill at a charity gig earlier this year...and will be going to his brand new tour in a couple of months, by then he should be a darts champion emoticon

Re: Countdown


It's about time! It's already a whole year since he was last on emoticon

Although, there's only one episode next week because of damn horse racing.

Re: Countdown


On March 27th, 2015, SOMETHING HAPPENED. I finally got around to watching Tim Vine's latest stint in DC. Memorable for Tim and Nick exchanging barbs by the end. Didn't see that coming.

"Shortcut. Not something you have to worry about anymore." Ooh, that's below the belt, Hewer! emoticon
