Taskmaster


We've spoken about this in another topic before, but it really needs one of its own!

If you've not seen Taskmaster: five "comedians" have to complete tasks set to earn points. It's that simple emoticon Simple, but genious at the same time.

There's a new series on right now. The first task of the first episode really wasn't the greatest one to start with (demolish a cake), so I was a bit worried it wasn't going to be great, but thankfully there was no neeed to be. I think this is the best series yet - and we're only three episodes in! I'm loving it emoticon

Here are the three episodes that have aired so far of the current series:

Re: Taskmaster


Oh yes I love Taskmaster emoticon

I've only seen a few clips of the first series, but have been following it since the second one.

I believe two series have been commissioned this year, so if the next one airs around the same time as Red Dwarf 12, Dave will be the best uk tv channel this Autumn!

Re: Taskmaster


You should definitely watch the first series properly. It was my favourite up until this series. For me, it goes series 4 > 1 > 3 > 2.
Series 2 began with one of the best episodes of all, but it wasn't as great overall.

Re: Taskmaster


That will always be one of the best moments ever emoticon

I dunno I just think that series went a bit flat. And there were too many 'try and be funny' tasks (making a film, making a music video, making a silhouette thingy, entertain the mayor). Taskmaster is making people do random challenges, that's where the humour comes from, not from a bunch of comedians attempting to be funnier than each other.

Re: Taskmaster


Your ratings of the series is actually the same as the average series ratings of UK Takeshi (in terms of series 4 being the best, 2 being the worst, etc.)!

Haven't seen whichever series you guys are referring to, but it doesn't sound terrible. Maybe I'll find out when I watch it but we'll see!

Re: Taskmaster


It's not terrible, it was still pretty funny, but not as good as the other series' for me,

Re: Taskmaster


Yeah I know what you mean, the tasks that are straight-up random challenges (like the rubber-duck and exercise-ball ones) are better than the "Do this the best" or "Be the most creative with this" ones. I guess I should see the series before saying too much anyway!

It's funny how we kinda just switched our stances!

Re: Taskmaster


I've not watched this week's episode yet, but it'll be up online to find. I'll post the link when I have seen it, if you want to wait a day or two.
