Well, another year, another Big Fat Quiz. Did anybody watch and if so, thoughts?
Personally, not as funny for me as the last few years. I don't think the panellists had as good of a chemistry as they have had in the past. I found Izzard to be particularly boring, and while David (Mitchell) had some great moments, I think he had less to work with this year.
Noel Fielding and Russell Brand pulled off the "we're not really trying and just in it for a laugh" role much better than David Walliams and Miranda Hart did this year I thought. They got a bit tiresome with constantly repeating the Richard Keys thing.
Then there was Jamie Oliver, who, while not particularly bad, was just not a good choice I think.
I think the funniest moment was when David Mitchell said "...And the Queen is dead." at the end. I don't know why Miranda Hart and David Mitchell weren't teamed up together, as I've got the impression that they are actually good friends in real life. It certainly would have been better than Izzard/Mitchell as they had absolutely no repertoire with each other whatsoever.
