Storyline

Insane comedy quiz show, played purely for laughs, with the winners irrelevant. Comedian Greg Proops is the host; team captains are Craig Charles (Red Dwarf) and comedian Bill Bailey. Each team's 3 members are generally filled out with one comedian and one star each from a classic TV science-fiction series: eg Walter Koenig and Claudia Christian (Babylon 5), Sophie Aldred and Sylvester McCoy (Dr Who), or Armin Shimerman and Max Grodenchik (Deep Space 9).

Why was this cancelled?
24 October 2002 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

This show was a riot, plain and simple. The combined comic skills of Bill Bailey, Craig Charles and Greg Poops were enough to keep my eyes watering for the whole 1/2 hour slot the show filled, and that was without the added attraction of the guests they had on. It may have been slightly esoteric, but that just meant you appreciated the gags more. It still bemuses me to this day why such a perfectly good comedy quiz was ditched when it had so much potential, brought to the fore in the episode with "Admiral" William Shatner..oh how we laughed.

Overall the series was a huge amount of fun, a good way to spend a half hour of your evening and I can only hope that it is not lost with the other discarded attempts that litter the road to TV greatness.
