A Show For The Brilliant
14 November 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Oh good god...do I feel outclassed watching this show. The BBC have produced a game show that is simply the smartest show on television. With the simple premise of connecting three or four seemingly distinct clues, a team of three contestants have to "connect the dots" so to speak.

**SPOILER** For example, one question had contestants try to figure out the connection between four phrases in Spanish. The answer was Beatles songs. Believe me--it is not nearly as easy as it looks. **END OF SPOILER**

Unfortunately, there are few clips of this show in the US and BBC Four has not provided the episodes to BBC America, but if you happen to watch the show in the UK, prepare to be humbled in a very entertaining fashion.
