Absolute Balls - Not Worth Watching...
22 January 2009 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

What we've got here is a programme trying its best to fit the framework for what is popularly known today as the "quizcom" - a quiz with a comedic element forming the backbone of the programme.

Argumental, a Dave exclusive, is not shown on analogue terrestrial television, simply because it is nowhere near as good as every other quizcom out there. "Have I Got News For You," "Mock The Week," "Never Mind The Buzzcocks," et al contain more humour in their first two minutes than Argumental contains along the course of an entire show.

There are two reasons for this - one being the nature of the show, and how arguing for something you might not necessarily believe leaves you with a dearth of ideas. The main reason why Argumental fails dramatically to hit the mark, is the substandard comedians desperate to ply their trade, and prove that they are not, by any means, "C-list" comedians. In doing so, however, they prove more than any stand-up ever could, that they are nothing but "C-list" jokers, bereft of ideas, lacking the necessary charms required to drive a show and its audience on for the duration of an entire series.
