I'm a huge fan of Taskmaster. I've probably watched series 1 to 9 four or five times each, not even counting the hundreds of clips YouTube throws my way every week.
But series 10 and 11 were just shit. And it's because there's no audience.
When there's an audience feeding reaction to the contestants, the contestants understand that whatever they just did to f**k up in the VT was actually comedy gold, and they play into it.
In series 10 and 11 they just look miserable. Greg calls them a bunch of c**ts or whatever and they just sulk.
I'm incredibly angry that they seem to have already shot series 12 under pandemic conditions rather than waiting to go back to normal. Series 12 is probably going to be balls also.
Taskmaster NZ was way better than UK 10 or 11.
