I enjoyed the first series. It reminded me of Unplanned, which I also loved.


Yes, it is Unplanned with guests instead of David Baddiel.

Glad it's back. The first series was undemanding fun.

Skinner is great at the audience participation parts. He is one of the wittiest people on telly, but because he doesn't speak with a 'Stephen Fry' type accent he doesn't get the credit he deserves.

IMO.

Is good to see someone try this format for a change.
Always enjoyed Gay Byrne's Late Show when CH 4 used to show it because he had a knack for encouraging intelligent audience participation which was a change from British windbag chat show who never know when to shut up.

So what did you think?

It was a good start- the unscripted stuff is by far the best.

It was a good bit of fun. As in the past series, I felt there could have been more laughs in a few places, but for a nice chat about some quirky points of news and whatnot, it's good.

Looking at things as a whole, by and large, taking one thing with another, weighing up the options, in the conclusion and looking at things both ways I have to say,that, purely in my own opinion of course . . . .

Skinner is a cnut. (damn keyboard)

Why?
Is it just a personal opinion?
Or has he done something wrong?

As well as just not finding him at all amusing, he's an Albion supporter along with the odious Adrian Chiles !

The superhero who makes packed lunches for the homeless is very funny.

I enjoyed it again, but I'd prefer it if it was live and on for 1 hour.
