A promising start!
27 February 2010 | by (Lancaster, United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I've just watched the first episode of this and, frankly, I enjoyed it! It's difficult for a show coming on the tail of such classics as HIGNFY and QI not to suffer by comparison, but "The Bubble" doesn't disappoint! As probably stated elsewhere on this page, a series of contestants/celebrities are isolated from the media for a few days, then asked questions about stories- whether they're true or fictitious! Obviously the responses depend on the people who are asked- Reg D Hunter really padded out the first show IMHO- but this is an issue with all topical quizzes. The host holds it all together well and overall it's very entertaining! 9/10
