A comedy panel game in which being Quite Interesting is more important than being right. Stephen Fry is joined each week by four comedians to share anecdotes and trivia, and maybe answer some questions as well.
Slightly unfocused and meandering, but nonetheless very illuminating and interesting documentary on bipolar disorder, hosted with an understandably personal touch by Stephen Fry whose at his most tactful without reserving his wittiness.
