Pointless


#387

It’s also not like a longer Pointless is going to rate higher than The Project.


#388

And would probably cost more to produce (ie only producing 4x 45 minute episodes per day rather than 5x 30 minute episodes).


#389

I hadn’t watched the UK version until after I saw the local adaption. I found it painfully slow. I like the fast paced half hour format,


#390

Is it me or has something changed on the show tonight? The audience seemed a lot louder and more prominent throughout the show.


#391

If you never saw the UK version you probably wouldn’t have a problem with it. You’re comparing the version that is produced by the BBC and the one that’s on a Commercial station. I think 30 mins is enough.


#392

Yeah they have been told to ham it up a bit I think especially with the whooping as the scores count down on the board. I don’t mind it - adds a bit more excitement I think.


#393

Agreed.


#394

Last night i watched for first time in a couple of weeks and Andrew mentioned that the pointless answers are on Tenplay


#395

Ten’s promo department getting pretty creative with the promos this week:


#396

Maybe/hopefully the promo team got a kick up the arse after the woeful promotion of pilot week.


#397

I wouldn’t turn down $2000, but it’s not particularly dazzling.


#398

i agree.
I’d change the final round so that if the contestants get both the final answers as pointless, the prize money doubles.


#399

A grand prize of $2000 is probably all Channel Ten can afford though. :stuck_out_tongue:


#400

BBC gives even less at 1000 pounds.


#401

BBC - $10 billion annual budget

Ten - $350ish million operating expenses


#402

actuallllly the exchange rate means that most of the time £1 is $2, so it’s the same amount most of the time (of course the rate fluctuates all the time, but it isn’t as bad as you’d have us believe).


#403

What a load of garbage. Haven’t you heard that CBS owns TEN? Probably got lots more money than 9 or 7!


#404

I wasn’t being entirely serious with that comment, hence the emoticon choice!


#405

Calm down, he was just joking.


#406

I’m perfectly calm thanks. How are you? :yum:
