I died laughing watching this, my ghost is writing this.
24 October 2002 | by (Liverpool, England) – See all my reviews

Now in it's tenth year, shooting stars is still one of the funniest shows on tv. Gone is the dove from above, replaced by a scary looking fox who asks in a gruff voice for some gin. Will Self, as a team captain, is introduced with pantomine style "evil" music. The "clips" round includes hilarious clips such as "the Sunderland film society presents the Incredible Hulk" and "nigella bites". Questions include "Madonna's music is getting worse isn't it?" and "name a dog". Everything that happens on it is funny, and I just hope that they're showing it in America. Not that they'd understand it...
