QI



If you live in England, I'm sure you know about QI ('Quite Interesting'), but as an American, I was happy to discover these video clips on YouTube.

This one was apparently the pilot, from when the show started in 2003. The set has certainly changed since then, but the format is the same. And the shows tend to be absolutely hilarious!

Anyway, if you want to check it out (I'll warn you that it can be a real time-waster), here's a playlist covering every season, apparently. Here's another.

Note that the shows are identified by letters, with the first season being 'A' and the current season 'J.' The 'XL' shows are 'extended length' - about 45 minutes, rather than a half hour for the others.

I've just been sampling them - there's a lot of television there - but my gut hurts from laughing so hard. They really are quite interesting... and quite funny.

Looks like a great show. I'll have to watch some of them and see if i like it.

Yep, it's long been essential viewing in my house. I maybe should warn anyone with prudish tendencies that it has become increasingly, well, non-prudish of late.....

Heh, heh. True, Tony. It doesn't seem to be the kind of show we'd see in America. Admittedly, I don't know what's on cable these days. :)
