"APTEROUS" on Countdown

Post by L'oisleatch McGraw » Fri Jan 06, 2017 6:09 am

Is it just me, or is there a palpably weird and knowing atmosphere in the studio every time APTEROUS comes up as a DC max on Countdown?
It's kind of like in Harry Potter when someone dares to say "Voldemort" rather than "he who must not be named".

Susie has a slightly excited expression, of someone who is being a little subversive.
Nick (badly) feigns ignorance of ever having heard of such a thing.
Rachel gives a conspiratorial cheeky grin to the camera, just to directly acknowledge that she knows each of us are watching and understand.

Or maybe it's just me.

Yeah pretty accurate from what I just saw, but I think Nick might genuinely be ignorant of it.

Another niner for Adam and yet another century. Well done, that man."
