Not Interesting
13 November 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Really not. Not even close.

Yet more trivia from "studies" that no one actually finds worth hearing.

So something "looks straight because it is", then I'm not sure if anything in the world can be unfit for QI material. And how many PHDs and how many years of studies did it take to establish that a few pillars that have been around for centuries are straight?

Here's my understanding of the formula (it's not just one question I keep banging on about, but I'm trying not to spoil the whole show): "You know that thing that you thought were not straight but turned out it is?" "No I didn't think it was not straight." (IF I did, then this would be interesting.) "Well some people did." "What people?" "People you don't know and will never had anything to do with." "And why did these people make this mistake the rest of us didn't make." "They are stupid." Well this sort of material is already well covered by Jeremy Kyle, according to what I heard about his work.

Out of 10, I mark something a 2 if it has been a complete waste of time like something pointless and unenjoyable. 1 is reserved for something that is blatantly offensive, which would have been the case for this episode except for the saving grace of David Mitchell spelling out how pointlessly obtuse these "studies" are. And yes, admittedly, the satire also helped to make it bearable.
