He's back and he's bad! (at answering questions).

After memorable stints on First Class (1987 - 1 win 1 loss), Weakest Link (2008 - win) and 15-1 (2014 - 4th, 1st & 2nd) our favourite (well mine at any rate) game show contestant returns for four shows on the tea time Quiz !mpossible.

The series starts on Monday with the venerable B'man showing up on Tuesday the 27th for as many shows as it takes to get the elusive jackpot - you come back each day until you get a crack at the final or when the block ends on the Friday. With a total of 24 contestants it'll be a tall order - tune in and see if his comments about 2000ad make the cut!

Don't worry this thread will be endlessly bumped and I'll live comment on the Wednesday episode as I'm off work and I like to irritate people!

Not having access to BBC1 - how did you do on the Tuesday episode?

Not allowed to say! Will say that I'm on the Wednesday one too!

Can't you mask your isp and watch it via the BBC iPlayer if you are overseas? Theoretically of course, I wouldn't condone such activities.

FFS! Next Tuesday Tom! Set your alarm for 5.15 on the 24th and wake up all refreshed for the exciting action! I do two rounds on books and literature. That should be up your street, what with your sweeping up at the library gig.

Ah, misread the date - I asked on the Wednesday how the Tuesday episode had gone, but got the week wrong!

Ah bollix, I thought there was a series of Button Man in production. Still, next best thing I suppose

Exactly what I thought.


My disappointment knows no bounds.

Yes, they will filmed last October - and I can guarantee excitement! Or a least me bantering with the host in a series of bad shirts. (him, not me).

...a series of bad shirts.

A series implying a number of instances greater than two, mmmmmm?  Confidentiality clause slipping there, BM?

How hard is this people?! (ooh-er)

It's on Tuesday coming (ooh-er again) the 24th.

I am billed as 'Steve' (they already had a 'Steven') - didn't matter that I use the correct spelling.

I am in the top right corner and will appear in all 4 shows Tuesday - Friday - will I get to the final? Will I get to the final final?

Tune in and see.

Or check this thread in a week for a blow by blow account. (ooh-er again again)
