    Does anyone else here watch this or is it just me? With my interest in Pointless waning, this has become my favourite quiz show of the moment. It's even better now they've extended the show by quarter of an hour to 45 minutes.

    I've watched it. though I don't like how the celebrities always try to act 'celebrity', i.e they have got to be the funniest, or most knowingly stupid. That one with that dwarfy scot bird isn't bad, though its ridiculously convoluted, and shares the same old problem that thwarts most daytime quiz shows, piss poor prizemoney

    I'm fantastic at getting final round pointless answers - especially in rounds about actors. This time I got two: for Rhys Ifans films I got The Shipping News and for Jonathan Pryce The Adventures of Baron Munchausen.

    Stargate SG-1 Series 5 episodes Providing Ground and 48 hours because I felt like watching Stargate and those episodes because I closed my eyes and picked a DVD at random. 48 hours I enjoyed the most out of those two since its the first time Rodney McKay who becomes the lead scientist in Stargate Atlantis is seen.

    Season 2 of Star Wars Rebels. It's pretty good, but I watched too much. I tend to binge these series all the way through in a couple of days or so. I really need to pace myself better.

    I've just started my rewatch of Todd & The Book of Pure Evil. This show initially comes across as just another stoner comedy. But it's got too much depth and intelligent writing for it to be labelled as such... character development, a fantastic "monster of the week" format that also also deepens the mystery of the overall story arc, and an antagonist that is just such a fantastic character. I think I rate the antagonist of the piece higher than I even rate even Arnold J Rimmer. He's evil but funny. He has his reasons for being this way. And is his character irredeemable?

    It's basically a cross between Buffy the Vampire Slayer and the Evil Dead TV show. They even do a musical episode which, like Buffy's Once More With Feeling, has an in story reason for happening...and being a metal based musical episode, is better than Once More With Feeling IMO.

    Warning if anybody does decide to watch it. Season 2 finishes on a massive cliff hanger and then the show got cancelled. It has thus far not been resolved. Although they were successful in an Indiegogo campaign and are currently making a movie length animated finale bringing back all the actors to voice their characters...and it has Jason Mewes in it!!

    Two more final round pointless answers from me. Both times for Tom Green both as an actor and as a director for winning Golden Raspberry Awards.

    Once again, I'm unstoppable where films are concerned. This time I got a pointless final round answer with The Silence of the Lambs for Oscar winning films that contain the letter n.

    Horrible Histories. Was one of the early series but not sure which one. I'd forgotten how a few skits went due to how long it was the last time I watched.

    It's definitely a much slower pace than Breaking Bad, but the quality of the writing, acting and production is definitely on par with it. I'm thoroughly hooked.

    If you like Breaking Bad and Better Call Saul, you may also like a show on Netflix called "Power". Give it a few episodes; I got quite hooked on that and ended up binging all three seasons quite quickly. Has been commissioned for another two seasons. Season 4 is coming in June/July I think.
