Amazingly funny and cleverly done.
23 September 2016 | by (Copenhagen) – See all my reviews

8 Out Of 10 Cats does Countdown is and will always be, one of my favorite quiz shows.

It is so funny, each episode in a different way, some more than others, but they never fail to make me giggle.

Jimmy Carr does a great job as host, and still manages to stay funny and quick to comment. Jon and Sean are both some of my favorite comedians, they are always very clever and very funny, and actually fairly good at countdown, which is quite nice.

Last but not least: the format. The general format of Countdown really hits the spot with me. Sitting at home, trying to get a better word than they do, is so much fun.

All in all a great show!
