Britain's Brightest
 
So finally the BBC understand the concept of a decent cash prize unlike most of there shows

My crapometer is going haywire.

rhumble 05-01-2013 19:14

Is this just gonna be BBC's version of the krypton factor, but without the best bit which was the assault course

lynwood3 05-01-2013 19:15

Well I'm hoping for something based on intelligence for a change

Ed Sizzers 05-01-2013 19:16

So, this is basically a meeting of 2 factors; X and Krypton.

Not sure if it's lowbrow attempting to be highbrow or vice versa.

The contestants have to guess how old that panel are? That all?

Seems so. What's that got to do with intelligence? :confused:

They would all be in trouble if that panel included Sinitta.

And yes, it is a 2013 Krypton Factor.

alcockell 05-01-2013 19:18

This is AWFUL! Clare, what were you thinking?

plymgary 05-01-2013 19:19

Claire Balding is better than this. Was Richard Hammond busy when they were filming?

Half naked man, and there was I thinking I was not watching Splash!

rhumble 05-01-2013 19:21

Britains Brightests,,,or Britains Gest Guessers at people ages:confused::rolleyes::rolleyes:

alcockell 05-01-2013 19:22

Hardly stands up to Countdown or Krypton Factor, does it?

Psycho_Ned 05-01-2013 19:23

I thought I'd give this a chance as it might be a decent intelligence based quiz show.... They couldn't have chosen a worse game to start with an utter trash age guessing game!

Times Crossword editor v Member Of The Apostrophe Protection Society? Surely they wont have to guess things

prehensile 05-01-2013 19:30

Dear oh dear - the spelling stuff is childishly easy

mrbernay 05-01-2013 19:32

This is very boring stuff!!!

BillyBatty 05-01-2013 19:32

Isn't it just. And they call it Britain's brightest.

bigpod 05-01-2013 19:35

Sorry - only got two minutes in - the biog bit was enough to put me off. Sounds like I made a good decision. BTW, Dad's Army is at its normal smile inducing besst.

Psycho_Ned 05-01-2013 19:37

Got 2 people great at maths coming up.

Probably going to be a round on the 5 times table :p

Balding doing nothing to dispel the dumbed down britain theory.

Define "Brightest" ?

The Brightest in Britain would not entertain this type of drivel and humiliate themselves by association with it.

So point of programme lost immediately.

21stCenturyBoy 05-01-2013 19:39

I have quite a few Portuguese friends and they all sound stoned when speaking English.

Mr 9 A*'s at GCSE is no different.

mrbernay 05-01-2013 19:39

Oh - now a rebus!!!! What thrills.....
