can’t believe a thread about taskmaster’s reached 300 posts
just seems too far fetched to be true
It’s a popular show!
Justice for Nish (revisited)!
I’ve attempted to fit all past contestants into these categories.
Legitimately funny person
Amusingly inept at the tasks
Likeable person who gets into the spirit of the thing
Old bloke who thinks they’re being so clever by finding loopholes
(also Richard Osman & Al Murray)
“Oooh aren’t I quirky, I’m such an oddball”
I have a few remainders though.
I’d class the following as fine/good but not quite fitting into the categories above:
That leaves Lolly & Nish, who I found largely unamusingly inept.
This is an admirable effort
i agreed when i thought he was talking about the current series
didn’t dislike anyone but no one was outstanding
enjoyed this type early on, particularly when it felt to me like a lot of the tasks were sort of designed for it. has definitely become tiresome as the show has gone on and people have overdone it for too many tasks.
Think they got their shit back together with the tasks this series. The last one felt like there were too many of the ‘most/biggest/furthest’ type.
Wish I liked TV so I could chat about something current with people but not enough to actually like TV i guess.
Have you watched this?
only just caught the repeat of the final. enjoyed the videogame task a lot and was properly loling out loud at the tying up task. it’s the most brilliantly cruel tasks like the latter that are always my favourite, when Horne is a proper evil genius.
Just on season 6 now and I was always kind of fond of Russell Howard despite the haters, I mean, never found him funny but thought the whole postivity stuff he was doing was really pure light entertainment and good on him. My God, he’s awful though, isn’t he? He just comes off really smug and I find everything about him annoying.
Simirlarly, always like Liza Tarbuck in a very British sort of way, like she made me feel like everything was quite nice. But there’s just something about her so far on this that makes me think she’s probably had words and only agreed to do it if she got good marks and wasn’t made a buffoon of. Feel like they’re all just a little bit scared of, or just don’t like her, and none of them really have any chemistry between them at all on this season.
Sums it up. Luckily it is followed up with possibly the best series
This show seems to massively change my opinion of people I either liked or hated.
Properly hated Al Murray but loved him on this.
Just finished season 5. The songs about Rosalind had me in tears.
Bob Mortimer is genuinely so weird isn’t he? Like properly natural weird funny thoughts. He’s brilliant.
Mark Watson is so endearing
Yeah I like him now too!
