Funny
Do these 2 really think the are funny? .
Switch. 4:52pm Sat 14 Apr
 
   
Studio background
The new layout is fine except for the appalling lines across which either dissect or rest on top of contestants heads-too distracting. How would Alexander or Richard like it over or through them.

Louis
What's that dead earwig doing on the side of his head.
Codger 4:26pm Wed 11 Apr
 
   
No matter
what the contestant's job is, brain surgeon or cleaning mens toilets, Xander says "good" alternated by "very good". He does have plenty to say to Richard though!
gina 4:37pm Mon 26 Mar
 
   
boring repeats
Why is the BBC repeating Pointless episodes??? This is very boring. Also, Alexander repeats word for word the same script ... amazing lack of creative use of language. Pointless is getting very boring and predictable and could do with a make-over.
Tom 5:25pm Mon 19 Mar
 
   
And
why does Xanda repeat the questions.....zzzzz
gina 11:38am Sat 17 Mar
 
   
Boring
Why does Richard Osman have to read out so many pointless answers,he reads them so quickly and it’s not even interesting.
Maggie 11:27pm Fri 16 Mar
 
   
Football
Please could someone tell Richard that the whole world is NOT obsessed by football.
Marion 10:57pm Mon 12 Mar
 
   
Repeats
I'm sure I've seen many of the contestants appearing on the current BBC series before. Are they repeats? Perhaps they all look the same anyway!
Johnny Boy 11:10pm Thu 15 Feb
 
   
Repeats
Any new ones soon?
taffy 11:41am Sat 3 Feb
 
   
Xander and Richard
I could say they should get a room.....but I won't!
don'tbelieveallyouread 6:52pm Mon 22 Jan
 
   
the chat show
Tonight, after chatting with Richard for too long, Alexander said, Lets get on with the show, about time
oscar 5:32pm Mon 22 Jan
 
   
the word FUN
Please, please can Alexander stop saying the word FUN, it's driving me absolutely crazy, so much so, I have to change channels. I'm sure if a contestant said that their occupation was cleaning toilets Alexander would say "that's fun" Grrr.
Fedup 5:53pm Wed 10 Jan
 
   
oh dear
must richard and alexander spend half of the programme chatting
Oscar 5:23pm Fri 5 Jan
 
   
Pointless
On tonight's programme they stated that there was only one City in the U.K. with seven letters in it BRECHIN in Angus is a city as it has a Cathedral
Ter 7:18pm Sat 23 Dec
 
   
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
Kenny 5:39pm Mon 20 Nov
 
   
ridiculous.
Is osman going for the Clark Kent look with that ridiculous quiff?
woodpecker. 4:46pm Thu 26 Oct
 
   
osman.
He's not only the most boring man on tv, but the whole universe.
nikki 4:24pm Fri 20 Oct
 
   
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.
ferdyfree 3:00pm Fri 20 Oct
 
   
Lespar
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.
georgie 9:48pm Wed 28 Jun
 
   
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
Lespar 9:23pm Wed 28 Jun
 
   
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.
poison ivy. 6:02pm Thu 22 Jun
 
   
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.
