New Episodes of 8/10 Cats Does Countdown

Post by Gavin Chipper » Thu Jun 22, 2017 9:42 pm

I thought I might start a thread about this, because they can be hard to catch. There was one on last week, and I think tonight as well, but I'll catch that on All4.

I've not been keeping up to date with this, but on All 4 (the Channel 4 catch-up thing) the new episodes available are series 14, episodes 2-4 (25/8/17, 1/9/17 and 15/9/17).

Since I'm the main person doing the recapping on the Apterous Wiki and I'm on the forum here there's one coming up next Friday on 19 January 2018 at 9pm! :)

There was also a Christmas special, which is still on All 4.

While you're all busy watching CoCXV, you can take a mental break by watching Series 17 from 11 January 2019 onwards! :)

Wow, am I dreaming, Catsdown has started using the ODO (At LONG, LONG last!!!), Come to think of it, maybe this is why Sean could safely go for STRAFED and GUILE.

A new series started yesterday. The longest pregnancy in history has kicked back into action.

Found it quite an enjoyable episode tbh in general. Some of the players on Catsdown are definitely better than some we see on the normal show. I reckon Jon Richardson would stand a good chance of becoming an octochamp if he was on the standard variant. Other decent players I can think of are Victoria Coren Mitchell, Alan Carr, Katherine Ryan and Sean Lock (who seems a little inconsistent, but has come up with some nice words in the past)....

Their CD ability seems decent, but I've always found the show too slow-paced. A few more rounds would make the comedy feel less forced.

Inclined to agree- I think they spend too much time at the beginning talking to the players.

Aye and not enough doing just that on the real show.

Indeed, that is something Nick isn't very good at, he is always interrupting, presumably because he thinks he has time constraints, in which case he could cut out some of his one weird anecdotes!
I thought I was good at Countdown until I joined this forum

It looked like a pre-pregnancy Rachel in last week's episode so they might have found one that they forgot to show previously lying around the studio floor. It will be interesting to see what happens this week.

I read some stuff online saying there was something controversial about it, hence why it was left for a while...
