Inconsistency
I agree with "Sad". The same person's partner did not know the exact title of Neil Young's "Heart of Gold" but Richard Osman allowed a virtual line from the song as an answer.

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.

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'.

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.

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.

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

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!

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.

I can't understand
Why the prize money is so low,and has to be shared between two.The last section of the show is so tricky,it deserves a lot more of a prize.I think anyone getting a pointless answer should win a spot prize,as well as money for the pot.Buck up,BBC.

Thanks very much indeed.
Alexander Armstrong says the above as many as 30 times per episode - so annoying. Also, whatever the occupation of a contestant, whether it be refuse collector, grave digger etc. he says, "that must be fun".

It would appear that the four missing episodes from April are now being shown. It looks like they are going on until Monday, as Repeats start again next Tuesday.

London Bridge
Tell Richard that London Bridge was an early single by Bread. I think the problem was that the contestants were a bit surprised that Stoats were only native to the Arctic.

Brilliant show but.......
so annoying when suggestions go off screen whilst contestants decide which answer to give. Can't they be shown in the corner or something! Otherwise love it.

Inconsistency
Although they won the Jackpot with Joe Mercer, the answer of Seb SANDERS (also Pointless), should not have been allowed. The couple definitely said Seb SAUNDERS. Richard has disallowed answers in the past for less of an infringement.

Eton Mess
Sorry, I must be in the minority, but I have not heard of an Eton Mess before. I was shocked (as I think were the contestants) when this answer gained many more points, than the John Lennon answer, in tonight's programme.

Say "Andorra" for Andorra La Vella- wrong. Say "Detroit, Illinois" (a real place, population 83) for Detroit, Michigan (population 680,000 and the largest city in the state) and it's OK! Some consistency please....
