I do enjoy a good quiz show on television, particularly the ones like University Challenge or Mastermind.
Apologies for anyone who doesn’t know what these shows are, particularly if you live in another country. University Challenge does what it says on the tin, a contest between two universities with the winner going on to the next round. The same can be said for Mastermind except the contestants are all individuals competing against each other.
It brings me on to a quiz show called ‘Only Connect.’ Now, it is a quiz show between two teams of four people. That’s about as far as I can get to understand any of it. After the introductions of the members of both teams, the competition starts, but I just cannot fathom what on earth is going on.
Each To Their Own
I’m a firm believer in ‘each to their own’, after all, life would be really tedious if we were all the same. However, when it comes to the competitors of ‘Only Connect’, there seem to be characters taking part that can only be described as a little off-kilter. I think I’m being polite as if I wasn’t I would say some are totally bonkers!
They have names that are not anywhere near what you would call normal. I know there’s nothing wrong with that, but I do wonder with television shows like this, are aliens are among us? I’ve been told that people enjoy the program because it is different, which I accept, but so is learning Latin and I don’t understand a word of that.
Watch For Yourself
I’ve included a video of one of the episodes that were shown earlier in 2019. I really would love to know what people think about the show. Have I got it wrong?
