Final episode finally had something funny in it - the blind obstacle course on a mobility scooter, which I thought was hysterical..........otherwise glad to see the back of it.

So, thoughts on the new line up? Jo Brand, Rose Matafeo, David Baddiel, Katy Wix and Ed Gamble. Great line up, Matafeo is one of my favourite live comics at the moment

Only know two of them, but happy to give it a look. Can't be any worse than the one just finished.

Very happy they are repeating the first series, which I missed. Very funny and notice that are not doing a running total?

Was watching the early episodes of the 6th series that I missed and have been enjoying it so much have continued to watch the rest I had seen as they are SO FUNNY with the one this week being absolutely hilarious, especially when they had to load up a plastic carrier bag and make it the heaviest one via a set of suspended scales, without the bag breaking. Tim Vine, almost straight away, "lost" the hook on the scales to hang his bag on and it was so, so funny him trying to find it. I won't say anymore as to where the hook was for fear of spoiling it for someone, but see it if you can! Laughing out loudLaughing out loud

I think, on balance, this is the funniest "crew" of Tim, Asim Chaudhry, Liza Tarbuck, Alice Levine and Russell Howard, (even though I have never been a fan of his) and even the tasks were better/funnier.
