The QI boxsets: a pedantic look

As a fan of the show, I was always going to cover this show positively and thus I feel that a straightforward review might be too biased. Therefore, I have decided on a different approach. As the Elves have called me their "chief pedant", and soon they will begin researching Series P, I have decided in good humour to cover both of these boxsets pedantically. Please note that if I do make any mistakes, feel free to pedantically correct me in return.
