Re: Spoilers for Tuesday February 14th (Series 66 Prelim 27)

I don't really see the controversy behind pluralising mass nouns, the rules clearly state that you cannot pluralise a mass noun but you can pluralise a food eg tandoori/tandooris although 'sedations' could be plausible in the fact that maybe an animal could have had 2 sedations in its life, I dont ...

Re: Spoilers for Thursday February 16th 2012 (Series 66 Game

Really good game, both played well. Congrats to Chris who played even better than yesterday and unlucky Matt as his performance today would have won many games comfortably. It was a shame about the numbers games as I'm sure Matt would normally solve those, maybe the studio pressure got to him. This...

Re: Spoilers for Thursday February 16th 2012 (Series 66 Game

Congratulations, Chris, on your win yesterday! :) I watched it this morning, not having seen the build-up, and was rooting for you, as we've played a few games on apterous. I've played Matt on apterous too, so whoever wins today, a fellow apterite will be in the champion's chair tomorrow. 8-) For th...

Re: Post your audition/filming/transmission dates here

I hope you get on the next series, Andy. :) Yeah cheers me too. I think it would be rather hypocritical of Damian Eadie if he used someone's internet posting against them in an application to be on the programme, since he remains producer despite some of the nasty stuff he posted on here when he us...

Re: Post your audition/filming/transmission dates here

Damian also said that contestants that apply get screened so to speak, and because I might have hypothetically sworn about a hypothetical losing finalist from series 65 in the public domain, then my application could potentially have been binned straight away so I don't regret not sending it then (...

Re: Countdown mentions on other shows

Anyone see Room 101 last night :?: The singer, Jamelia, said that Countdown will be finished in 10 years time :!: I saw this on "Room 101 Extra Storage" on Sunday. Jamelia was trying to get text speak into Room 101, and was just saying that kids won't be able to spell if we keep allowing them to te...
