Ned bummed it...

I too would have rogered it with my only pointless answer of Stuart Bingham in the final round...

Seem a naturally funny guy Ned, without even trying - Am I right - or is he nervously funny?

His humour is a taste you have to acquire.

I actually had 1 Pointless answer from each final category. With Dave on Stuart Bingham, with Ned on Barnsley and had Mario Ancic too. Only once before have I ever got a pointless answer in the final round, so to get 3 in one go - I'm rather happy with myself.
Possibly the first contestant to accelerate with a mic clipped...

Did anybody see the final round on tuesdays (3rd Dec) episode?

Am pretty sure if at least one person in their survey was from London there would have been at most a quarter as many pointless answers than there were!

You know when you press the i button on your sky remote to find out what the show is about. Why can they not say when things are repeats. I'm pretty sure they used to have (R) at the end but I haven't seen one in ages.

Yeah I feel like it used to happen on Sky. I remember it more from the hard copy of the Radio Times in my youth. Either way, it should be everywhere. The fuckers.
Pointless is probably the worst show I have ever seen for sheer amount of repeats, and the way they mix them up into current seasons.

I've never seen one, full stop, but checking the BBC website is the thing to do, as each episode has it's original broadcast date.

Best final round ever. Shame your man blanked it. I knew every possible answer for Zep 4 and Appetite for Destruction and most of Nevermind.

Ah, clearly it passed me by! I was just happy for a rare contextual opportunity.

Here's Jamie's moment of glory. I remember thinking, that's sailing close to the wind for a teatime game show, and then a few minutes later the name of some insect or other came up and Richard looked meaningfully at Michael and Jamie and said, "...also known as the cockchafer."
