Pointless Comments

Don’t see enough of the questions
Sick of seeing talk and banter with contestants let’s see a bit more of the questions because Richard often says well done at home for those who answered it right when really you don’t get chance to take in the questions through to much waffle from Alexander

ridiculous.
Is osman going for the Clark Kent look with that ridiculous quiff?

osman.
He's not only the most boring man on tv, but the whole universe.

bloody football
Richard Osman does my head in with football. He should not bring his favourite pastime into the conversation, every chance he gets. Is it not possible to have a quiz in which there is no football questions. The show is so biased towards men. Is Richard the most boring man on television. Bradly Walsh should give him some words of advice.

Because as my previous comment it id more to do with the presenter than anything else. They think they are what the show is all about and ike the sound of their own voice. They are the dimwits if they don't know how irritating they are.

One last time
Alexander thinks that viewers cannot read and cannot hear. Why on earth does he have to read the clues 'one last time' as if we did not hear him the first time. We can read . Please don't treat us as dimwits

Jeremy /Ben
If they won £1000 they were going to blow the lot on a slap up meal in London and a bottle of whiskey. Glad that they didn't win.

Words p...e
There is such a word as prile, the meaning is as the contestant stated. Pointless got it wrong
Sha 5:44pm Mon 5 Jun
 
   
Me too
I hate it when they call everyone mate. I am not and never will be! I also knew I was getting older when I started getting called darling and sweatheart in shops. Worst still when your addressed by your first name only. Stop it!
georgie 8:08pm Sun 28 May
 
   
Oh,and....
One more thing,what exactly does "if I'm being honest"mean?What happened to "to be honest"?
Lizzie 1:22pm Sat 27 May
 
   
And more
What is "yay" all about. They say it on childrens telly too! Another one is "you know what I mean". Sorry bur I don't!!
reuben 8:37pm Thu 25 May
 
   
another pet hate.
Also when they end a sentence with the word SO . . . . . as though they are going to say something else but never do.
joanna j 6:30pm Thu 25 May
 
   
Reuben
I totally agree with you,on both points.Also,where has the letter "t" gone,in many people's vocabulary,sloppy talk goes right through me.
Lizzie 5:53pm Thu 25 May
 
   
My pet hate
is when people start a sentencewith the word "so". The female contestant has every time she was asked anything. Some also raise their tone at the end of their sentence as if they were asking a question too. Why?? It is not correct grammar!!
reuben 5:38pm Mon 8 May
 
   
Too much
Like a lot of these quiz shows, it's more about the presenter than the contestants and the actual game of play. They love the sound of their own voice,...put a zip in it fgs!
georgie 1:18pm Fri 5 May
 
   
Contestants answers
Why does Richard Osman need to explain every answer that a contestant gives and then give unnecessary information about that answer, nodding his head at the same time as if he thinks he is clever
Dala 5:23pm Thu 4 May
 
   
Pointless questions app
It would be great to be able to have a Pointless questions screen on a tablet app so that players at home have a longer look at the questions whilst watching the show on telly. Love the show.
rcflier 9:24am Fri 21 Apr
 
   
Thanks to Richard
Surely someone at the BBC can ask Alexandra to stop saying Thank you very much Richard every few minutes He never gets thanked by Richard and it makes me cringe I know I keep on about it but it spoils the programme
Edgar again 10:52pm Mon 17 Apr
 
   
London Bridge
Tell Richard that "London Bridge" was one of the early titles from Bread.
Know-all 6:46pm Thu 13 Apr
 
   
Prev comm
Same as if you put the Queen's stamp on upside down. First world problems!
georgie 12:32pm Mon 10 Apr
 
   
Union flag upside down
Yes I too saw that episode. Sometimes when people make the error of flying the Union flag upside down it makes headline news. Type under search "Mayday Mayday Brown and Mandy" or "UK: Politics Defence Secretary apologises for flag blunder"
PatrickWoodMDE1990 12:07pm Mon 10 Apr
 
   
Union Flag
On todays programme you showed the union flag and suggested if it turned upside down it will be the same...........WRONG, NO IT CANNOT!!!.....SURPRISED THAT YOU COULD GET SOMETHING SUCH AS THIS SO WRONG.
Redcap 5:53pm Thu 30 Mar
 
   
upside down union jack
no you can't fly the union jack upside down the white line is different - surprised you didn't know
tinpanannie 5:34pm Thu 30 Mar
 
   
Grammar
Alexander ggggrrrr! 16 or FEWER NOT 16 or less. As bad as going into the 10 items or less aisle in the Supermarket. 10 items or FEWER!!
Cattypatty 5:46pm Tue 28 Mar
 
   
Fitting name
The name of this show is so fitting. Osman is a self-inflated supercilious twerp with little IQ but heaps of pretense.
Tarrant 1:47am Tue 28 Mar
 
   
Richard Osmans inconsistency
Why is it with some contestants Richard Osman will accept answers that aren't spot on, but with others, (presumably contestants he's not keen on ), he rejects. For example , he accepted an answer of FIELD OF GOLD, when it should be FIELDS OF GOLD. Previous contestants have answered in the singular instead of plural and been eliminated.
Sad 6:02pm Wed 15 Feb
 
   
thank you Richard
Why does Armstrong say Thank you very much Richard every few minutes he also likes to say many OKs
Edgar 5:04pm Wed 15 Feb
 
   
Sequence of shows
Why is the show not shown in order... there are some new episodes followed by old ones
Jane 6:41pm Wed 1 Feb
 
   
Totally Unfair
I love this show but couldn't belive it when the finalists were told Vivian Leigh wasn't correct because she was an 'actress' and mot an 'actor'.
HP 6:05pm Fri 27 Jan
 
   
order please
Why are the Pointless episodes not in order.We had the 1,000 th episode Monday and the next day we were back to the 998. This is not the first time they have gone out of sequence and repeated old episodes
Hellon 11:15pm Wed 18 Jan
 
   
Football
Richard osman is obsessed with football sick of all the footall related questions
Itsy 5:56pm Thu 15 Dec
 
   
Repeat
Why are they so many repeats on point is these days I don't see the point it's pointless !!!!
Pointy 5:27pm Wed 7 Dec
 
   
sport/football
two women go out on sport questions then final was won on sport, again. Richards face lights up when football appears
ferdyfree 2:29pm Tue 6 Dec
 
   
Contestant introductions
Why have they stopped the contestants explaining there relationship to each other? this leaves you wondering are they friends, work colleagues or family.
S90 9:33pm Fri 25 Nov
 
   
Tight bbc?
Bbc saving money screening repeat quiz sscreenot worth watching.
Bentos. 5:25pm Thu 24 Nov
 
   
H for Hotel
On tonight's quite forgetable show, I felt sorry for the returning pair who like me, thought they provided a low answer with "Hotel". Surprisingly it was not a low answer.
Out of Touch 6:36pm Wed 26 Oct
 
   
Another Incorrect Answer
Please note that "Say I Won't Be There" was by the Springfields as opposed to Dusty.
Observant 6:19pm Fri 21 Oct
 
   
Applause
can anything be done to stop Pointless contestants clapping themselves?
irritated 7:51am Fri 21 Oct
 
   
Talking
Far too much gibberish spoken between Alexander and Richard ITS NOT FUNNY
Kim 5:40pm Tue 4 Oct
 
   
annoying
what is about males, makes silly noise. Alexander guy, mmmh mmmmh mmmh, every show, worse when they discuss food, mmmh mmmmh mmmmh, mmmmh 90% from armstrongs mouth, its becoming repetitve and bloody well annoying. Change the record please, fed up hearing it. mmmh mmmmh mmmmmh mmmmmh, I am turning it over next time. mmmmh mmmmh
none 5:40pm Mon 19 Sep
 
   
In memory of
Who was Lucy Booth? I couldn't see her name in the credits
Scobie 6:16pm Wed 14 Sep
 
   
Throughfare
This IS a word in the dictionary even though Richard denys it!!
RoRo 5:34pm Thu 25 Aug
 
   
Embarrisment
I cannot believe how embarrasing the behaviour of Sandy Shaw and Sheila Armstrong is in this afternoons show. I do hope their behaviour improves if they are ever invited again.
Disgusted 5:44pm Wed 3 Aug
 
   
Joan Lee
Richard and Alexander's banter is getting too much.
Jaylee 6:09pm Wed 27 Jul
 
   
Ricahrd Osan a BFG?
Very interesting to read Tinkerbelle's experience at the recent recording she attended. When we went a year ago Xander was extremely friendly with the audience before recording began, coming over and spending quite a bit of time with us. Richard Osman however totally ignored us.
Spellbinder 1:56pm Tue 26 Jul
 
   
In the audience
Lucky enough to get front row seats to watch filming yesterday. Xander was in stitches with some answers could be due to double meaning. Guess those bits will be edited out. Seeing Richard up against everyone else he really is a BFG. Had a fab day would love to go again. Will have to make do and watch tv tonight
T1nkerbelle 6:26am Tue 26 Jul
 
   
Poor
I agree with you, Not Impressed. I am pretty sure the two men would never have won had more people been brighter. For heaven's sake, I knew it was meteorite! And that scored 10! And footballers were, indeed, a choice in the final! My goodness, this show is rigged!
BBC needs to die 7:44pm Wed 29 Jun
 
   
Lucky
Tonight's "Not too Bright" Jackpot winners were lucky in two respects. First of all they were lucky that "Meteorite" scored so low and got them to the Final, when Football was a choice.
Not impressed 6:01pm Fri 24 Jun
 
   
BBC iplayer
why is tonight's ( Mon 20/06/2016 ) episode of pointless not available on the iplayer and as the latest episode on the iplayer is over a month old it looks like I will never see it.
Tom C 7:28pm Mon 20 Jun
 
   
Banter
The banter between Richard and Xander,is wearing very,very thin. Richard is so witty,he soon leaves Xander lost for words.
