As much as I’d love for the first episode to be “The Hounds of Baskerville” (it was the first “real” Sherlock Holmes story I read not unless they’re going to adopt “The Red-Headed League,” so has always been one of my favorites, plus Russell Tovey!) that won’t be until Jan 8, and that’s practically like an really *cough*2months*cough* early birthday present, right? Still, Stephen Moffat wrote the “A Scandal in Belgravia” episode, so it’s going to be good.
Anyway, SHERLOCK AND JOHN WILL BE ON MY COMPUTER SCREEN ONCE AGAIN!
I like Miranda Hard, and as for David Walliams, I’m still up in the air, but I just watched the Big Fat Quiz of the Year 2006 and he was such a major swot in it, that this whole playing dumb thing they had on their team, didn’t work for me. He was with Rob Brydon in 2006, and they put real effort into the team and knew answers.
With Noel Fielding or Russell Brand, I believe they don’t pay attention to the news, so it makes sense when they’re all “Pieces of rainbow” and “Ennui.” It fits with their stage personas as well, to be slightly rebellious figures but not in a “Stick it to the man” kind of a way, but “We’re just trying to have fun, so that’s why we skivved off this class.”
It’s like David Mitchell and Richard Ayoade knowing a current piece of popular music, it’s incongruous, y’know? Yea, they might recognize “Poker Face” as something they have heard before, but I don’t really believe they know the name of the song, or the artist.
I loved Eddie Izzard, he was like some weird Christmas future version of David Mitchell but with more (or less) transvestism. David Mitchell was looking good tonight as well!
I generally have no problem with Jonathon Ross on it, but him and Walliams go after each other! I’ve noticed that when they’re on been on BFQotY previously. I thought Jamie Oliver was precious, and had some good moments in. For not being a comedian, and hey, they don’t always have comedians on people!, he had some funny little moments.
It seemed like they had A LOT of guest stars delivering the questions, way more than in past years, which I wasn’t a 100% about, but whatever.
Also, Jimmy Carr being excited about Lee Evans and Animal was precious!
8 out of 10 Cats Christmas special was not my favorite.
First off, I’m not a fan of when they bring people on the show just to mock (or on any panel quiz show), I’m sure the people are gettng publicity out of it, and don’t really care, but like any of those reality tv show people/Only Way is Essex/Made in Chelsea/Etc, they’re not that funny, unless it’s a non sequitur or that one girl really into vajazzling.
I’m not crazy about Jedward. They’re going 1000 mph/kph, and I’m going 5 mph/kph; they’re is a big difference in where they are and what I’m able to handle. They’re really nice and good sports, but I don’t really like watching them get picked on. Or at least, them getting picked on and not being able to dish it back out.
Also, I still don’t understand Pantomimes and why they go on Christmas. Thank goodness for the US an our sappy Christmas movies like It’s a Wonderful Life and Miracle on 34th Street or awesome Christmas movies like Die Hard and Home Alone.
