Ian 'Molly' Meldrum,
Peter Berner hosts The Einstein Factor, a quiz show based on several rounds from a 'sepcial subject' picked by each of the three competitors to a random bunch of misleading topics. ('grey not white' could mean grey's anatomy) Berner is a good host and makes Sunday afternoons at 6:30 enjoyable with this good show. Knowledge can be gained on both the special topics and the general knowledge, and the 'brains trust', a captain and two helpers, often have their own interesting facts related to the topics in question. Berner and the trust, and on the odd occasion a player, make it an enjoyable viewing not just with the gaining of knowledge but with jokes and a laid back manner that suits it's Sunday timeslot. Good on you, ABC, for keeping this brilliant show that constantly reveals to us new facts and gives us something better to do than watch the great outdoors. I won't even mention the non-energy-efficient light you have as your logo. oops. 8 stars.
