    The Monday night quiz fest is the same every week. Mastermind, do all right in the general knowledge and think I'm reasonably clever. Only Connect, pick up a few points and think I'm not as smart as I thought. University Challenge, realise I'm pretty thick really. 🤣

    William G Stewartís 15 to 1 was the pinnacle of quiz shows imo.

    Shed loads of questions with minimal filler, really simple but still with a wee tactical angle to it.

    Agree with that 15-1 was class.

    Canít abide Pointless...itís so damn slow and the money on offer is pathetic. It also strikes me more of a show just for Osman to sit grinning and being oh so clever that the contestants.

    Occasionally watch Tipping Point...mainly because I can get most of the answers and can laugh at the crazy folk that get the first answer and still play, despite the 90% likelihood of them getting zero out of the machine!

    The Chase is OK but itís far too rare that anyone wins so itís kind of a bit annoying on that front.

    Finally I used to quite like eggheads but no idea itís still going...was just all a bit odd, not just the eggheads themselves but the quiz teams that came on always had some right weird folk

    One of the eggheads died, I donít know if thatís anything to do with it not being on anymore, itís more likely to be covid related.

    United we stand here....

    That's why I love Only Connect as well. The teams are always brilliantly weird.

    Dave. Yet Daphne who must be about 160 by now is still going strong.

    I'm sure CJ was questioned about murder after he claimed to have killed someone in his autobiography.

    You wouldn't be surprised to see him crop up in one of those "Britain's Most Evil Killers" type of programmes.

    Aye I think it was in Amsterdam, something about pushing someone into a canal.

    Only Connect had a Proclaimers answer tonight. Which nobody got on the show.

    Also pronounced haver as havver as opposed to hayver. Never heard it pronounced havver before.

    ...and the only Scot present didn't know how to pronounce it either.

    The Scottish guy on the show, who's accent suggested centre/West, seemed to struggle with what it meant as well.

    Is haver an East coast thing?

    The chase

    I always preferred pointless and donít really know how Iíve managed to cross over to the chase! Maybe itís the influence from other members of the house always watching the chase!

    I agree with only connect comments though. Itís the only quiz show I make an effort to ensure I watch every week. And I also agree the pronunciation of ďhaverĒ was outrageous.

    Recently started watching house of games as well. A bit different and a slower pace but a no bad watch while eating the tea!
