The Big Fat Anniversary Quiz, 19 November 2007
Author: Jackson Booth-Millard from United Kingdom

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

This edition of the show that plays out like a pub quiz was part of the 25th anniversary of Channel 4, broadcast on the day the channel first started in 1982, so this was a great to relive the great television broadcast on the channel, and this was a great show to watch and have fun with. Hosted by Jimmy Carr, with celebrity panellists in three teams, the players were The IT Crowd's Richard Ayoade, The Friday Night Project's Alan Carr, Jack Dee, Peep Show's David Mitchell, Frank Skinner and Countdown's Carol Vorderman (the first woman to appear on Channel 4), this quiz focused on subjects based on the programmes Channel 4 broadcast over the last 25 years, including water cooler moments and most talked about shows, American TV, chat shows, youth and children's TV, comedies, sport, controversy, factual entertainment shows and game shows. These questions are asked as they are, with video and sound clips, with pictures (including Say What You See), and by celebrity and mystery guests on screen or in the studio, so it really does feel like a proper quiz that you can take part in. Events in the 25 years of Channel 4 that were questioned and joked about included: Countdown, The Big Breakfast, Shameless, Queer as Folk, Big Brother and Celebrity Big Brother, Brookside, Ramsay's Kitchen Nightmares, After Dark with Oliver Reed, Wife Swap with Lizzie Bardsley, The Last Resort with Jonathan Ross, Friends, The Cosby Show, Sex and the City, ER, Cheers, The Sopranos, Curb Your Enthusiasm, South Park, Clive Anderson Talks Back where the Bee Gees walked off and So Graham Norton where the Bee Gees called the host "scum", Ring My Bell, Max Headroom, Hollyoaks, The Word, The Tube, Network 7 and Club X, Pob, The Snowman, Creature Comforts, Vic Reeves Big Night Out with the catchphrase "What's on the end of the stick, Vic?", Peep Show, The Friday Night Project, Trigger Happy TV, Desmond's, Comic Strip Presents… Five Go Mad in Dorset, Smack the Pony, Bo' Selecta!, Peter Kay's Phoenix Nights, Father Ted, Spaced, Absolutely, The Adam and Joe Show, Whose Line Is It Anyway?, Drop the Dead Donkey, The 11 O'Clock Show, Saturday Night Live and Friday Night Live with Ben Elton and Loadsamoney (Harry Enfield), Saturday Zoo with Paul Calf (Steve Coogan), Ali G, Skins, Kabaddi, GamesMaster with Sir Patrick Moore, the Subbuteo World Cup, TV Dinners with Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall where he ate human placenta, The Autopsy with Gunther Von Hagens, Brass Eye, Shaun Rider swearing on TFI Friday, Derren Brown: The Heist, You Are What You Eat; Location, Location, Location; Property Ladder, Grand Designs, 10 Years Younger, All Stitched Up, Supernanny, Jamie's Kitchen, First AIDS (broadcast during the AIDS crisis), Easy Does It with Pat Rawlinson, Treasure Hunt with Anneka Rice, Banzai and The Crystal Maze. Other celebrity and special mystery guests in the show included the children of Mitchell Brook Primary School in Neasden who act out well known news stories, Derren Brown, Joanna Fisher from Minipops (she was 5 years old at the time), Brookside's Anna Friel, Jo Frost aka Supernanny, Ricky Gervais who started out on The 11 O'Clock Show, Desmond's star Ram John Holder, Jools Holland who hosted The Tube, Vic Reeves, Jonathan Ross, Jon Snow who reads news related to a Channel 4 children's programme (The Snowman) and Quentin Tarantino who directed an episode of ER. The jokes and the questions are what make this show so much fun, they chose the right celebrity panellists, and it also works as a funny way to reminisce on the years good and bad for a great channel, a great comedy quiz show. Very good!
