Just my opinion
25 October 2017 | by jaquipeytonSee all my reviews

I love Pointless , Alexander and Richard are superb but I do sometimes think that some of the questions are geared more for men than women. For example football, rugby, basketball, snooker to name a few are mostly male sports. Yes I'm sure there are a lot of women who watch these sports but as I said they are watched and played by predominantly males. I for one don't watch any of these sports. I therefore feel it would make things a little more even if some of the questions were more female orientated, you may argue that there are some and yes there are but very rarely and certainly the questions don't come up as often as the above mentioned. It's just my opinion and I still love the show. Jaqui Peyton
