I am really angry that UC has moved from tonight to I know not when. Why do they do this!?

Wrong answer accepted
Since when is ethyne (C2H2) the same as ethane (C2H6)? The gas produced when by Calcium Carbide and water is Acetylene or Ethyne. Paxo accepted Ethane as an equivalent. He definitely doesn't know all the answers and is unable to differentiate between similar sounding but totally different chemicals.

miserable phd Nuffield oldies using deliberate delaying tactics to beat nice young Warwick. Shame. Deduct points for delay and age over 21.

I preferred UC in the days of Bamber when most of the students were under 21 - now we have oldies who surely should have the advantage of age and experience. Do wish Paxman would stop fidgeting in his chair, particularly at the start. Surely he can't be nervous.

quadratic equation questions
I agree, the question should have been 7xx +35x +28 =0. Then it's possible to solve in your head. (Or even easier, 28x)

quadratic equation questions
Surely the answer to the second question would only be 4 if the middle term was 35x, not 42x as given?

perodic table
when asked for some ordering sequence the answer tendered was "chemical elements" but the correct answer was given by Jeremy was "periodic table". can someone tell me the difference?

Southhampton cheating
Southhampton seems to have an insight knowledge to some of the questions as they answered a question with the correct answer for the subsequent question.

wrong answer
the programme shown on Dec 30. section on ballistics asks, "what angle of launch is required to achieve the greatest distance across the surface. The answer accepted was 45 degrees. The correct answer is 32degrees.

Still the best Quiz Show on TV
I still long for the glory days of Bamber Gascoigne but Paxo does a credible job. Nice to see something that isn't dumbed down (much).

The Paxman Bias
Imperial college playing against Bristol were given an unfair amount of time to answer their questions.

Ill judged presentation
Why does a perfectly good format get messed around with a toe curling filmed sequence with the Duchess of Cornwall. This is a quiz based on ability not on position. Did it not occur to the producers that someone who's just there because of who they married and is not know for their intellect would be inappropriate. This last sequence was embarrassing to watch, visually out of keeping and editorially totally inappropriate. it looked like it had been directed thirty years ago; made Paxman look like a creep and the poor students were relegated to bit part players when they should have been the stars of the show. Please don't do this again.

Please could Jeremy let viewers know the answer to a question given when the bell at the end of the quiz goes.

Does anybody else find clemo's perma-grin infuriating? He's almost as self satisfied as Paxman himself.

Incorrect question on first cousins
The question posed tonight on the number of great grandparents shared by married first cousins was incorrect (answer given 12). It should have referred to the maximum number. For example, first cousins could be the offspring of parents from the same two families. One can also propose further complexities in other generations.

Awesome show
This show is amazing, all those who say you need to read the dictionary for a hobby to get this show, obviously prefer watching mind-numbing soaps and don't appreciate good shows

Oxford vs. Cambridge again?
They should call this show Oxford versus Cambridge Challenge. What a joke. Instead of esoteric questions about Byzantine toilets how about questions about something useful like Engineering. Then we would see that students from other universities are just as good or better than Oxford or Cambridge alumni. ...I was joking about the Byzantine toilets but I just heard Paxman mention mens' lavatories.

chips on shoulders
Some of the comments on here are clearly from those with giant inferiority complexes. The knowledge of SOME of these students is amazing. I do believe all contestants should be undergraduates and not postgraduates.

Time For Change
Why can we not have University Challenge shown later than the regular soap shows that the kids prefer to watch. I do not have Sky Plus blah blah blah. Also it never gets a second airing??????????????

Not as hard as one may think
Majority of the comments are mentioning the difficulty of the questions featured on UC, however my 13 year old daughter answers many of them.

Universally Unchallenging
Uncomfortable facts: 1. UC is a TV programme on TV. The aim of TV is to get people to sit down, vegetate and watch TV. 2. Programmers/producers/advertisers use a multitude of TV techniques to keep people watching TV. E.g. irritating host/guests, lovable host/guests, large-breasted host/guests, gay host/guests, etc. The whole idea being it makes you feel superior/angry/warm so you keep you watching TV. 3. UC is not good or bad TV. It’s just another TV programme on TV. Whether or not you like it or not, it’s all the same. You sat down like a vegetable and watched it – the programmers/advertisers have achieved their aim. Don’t U C?

Paxman is such a tool. JJ is right. Oh - I've spoken on the phone with site management. They're going to kidnap TMII and hold him for ransom. His parents are rich.

Putdown Paxman
Is there anybody else out there who deplores the 'Paxman' treatment of those willing minds who sign themselves up to today's University Challenge? I rue the day that Bamber Gascoigne departed. Superior knowledge and understanding is always to be encouraged and applauded but JP's supercilious, sarcastic and sometimes humiliating comments and looks are quite frankly demeaning. Please find someone new who encourages, rather than despairs of the University Challenge teams. Thank you.
