Trivia

The fictional Footlights College Oxbridge team on the University Challenge is comprised of guest stars Emma Thompson (Miss Money-Sterling), Hugh Laurie (Lord Monty), and Stephen Fry (Lord Snot), all virtually unknown actors at the time. All three were members of the real life Footlights Club at Cambridge University. See more »

Awesomely funny for the right market!
18 June 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I can't imagine this episode being any more perfect than it is. All the characters are purely defined and within themselves, the show moves at a constant up-pace. Cameo by Motorhead is the perfect source music for the groups' scurry thru the tube on their way to University Challenge where its the quintessential match between the snobs and the slobs. See Emma Thompson, Stephen Fry, and Hugh Laurie in early screen appearances. Total lunacy: Vyvyan loses his head, yet later introduces his Pig-Ferret named "Bacon Sandwich", Rick is universally known as the world's stupidest bottom burp, Neil:"Vegetable rights and peace." It doesn't get much funnier than this.
