Only Connect Series 10

Post by Jordan F » Thu Aug 28, 2014 3:02 pm

This starts in a few days. Any apterites or anyone we know on this series?

I did see something on Facebook of note. For the first time ever we have a returning team competing proper (not in a champions special). The History Boys, who first competed in season 2, are back. Interesting that this is happening, maybe they got some returning player vibes from Countdown?

I think all teams from the first few series (can't remember exactly where the cut-off was) were actively invited to reapply for this series. Would expect there'll be a few more returners to come.

The QI elves have a team this year. I'll be keeping an eye out for them.

Loved the fact that there was a question about "Life of Brian" this week. Truly the greatest comedy film ever made.

Meant to say this ages ago and forgot. Did you see the team that met on a forum for Doctor Who? They were basically who we all are.

You're riding roughshod through nuances of geekdom. :roll:

Haha yes, I noticed that, I was sad because I naturally went snooping but couldn't actually find a Doctor Who forum with an Only Connect thread. (Lest this sound like a classic c4c conspiracy, I presume this is down to my own incompetence rather than them being filthy liars, obviously.)

Awesome teams tonight. First up the coders. Coding is sexy and they have a super sexy smoking hot supermodel playing on them.
THEN WOW. The gamesmasters. Michael Wallace and Charlie Reams' lovechilds. Plural, one with beard. And someone called James Robinson who is nowhere near as good as the real one.

The one called Frederic (with no 'k') Something-Double-Barreled had divine cheekbones.

Is it just me or have the Chessmen been on before? I recognise Stephen Pearson from watching the Only Connect repeats on Dave recently.

Yes, Victoria Coren Mitchell mentioned it during the wall round.

Yep, they got to the semi-finals (losing to Mark Labbett's gamblers) and then won a third place playoff.

I vaguely recognize Simon from another team. I didn't know people were allowed to be on different teams.

He wasn't the one who looked like the Stegulator was he? I couldn't help thinking I recognised him true but assumed I was just consciously confusing him with the Steguloid.

Obviously ignore me if he wasn't the Stegatron lookalike.

No. Younger guy on the team, other one who wasn't the captain.

Tsk. If you read the blog of one of the best four Only Connect recappers on the Internet you'd know he was in Series 2 on the Cambridge Quiz Society team!
