Something Of A Guilty Pleasure
7 April 2003 | by (Isle Of Bute , Scotland) – See all my reviews

I find SHOOTING STARS to be very very silly , and yet when it`s broadcast I somehow find myself settling down to watch it with a smile on my face even though I`m ashamed to admit it .

SHOOTING STARS is a game show with Vic and Bob the quiz masters and Mark Lamarr ( Later Will Self ) and Ulrika Johnson as team captains . But it`s not like a normal quiz show , this one is absolutely surreal with humour you`ll either love or hate . I fall into both camps: I hate it in public but love it in private .

A recent episode featured one of the most bitchy comments I`ve ever heard . On helping out guest Debbie Mcgee slide down a rope ( Don`t ask ) Vic shouted up to Bob " You can touch her breasts " . Quick as a flash Ulrika shouted " You`d have to find them first ! "

I`ll say no more
