Only connect...

I must admit that I have a strangely geeky addiction to this program.

It's funny, because I have a somewhat irrational hatred of nearly all the contestants who tend to bring a whole new dimension to the term "sad".

Am I the only person who suffers this affliction?

You know she's going out with David Mitchell?

But yes - love the show and infatuated with Vicky Coren. The only woman hotter is Sylvia from Parades End.

Wouldn't be too confident, can you imagine an argument between those two? It would probably end with one of them being bludgeoned to death with a thesaurus.

David Mitchell does come across at times like a frustrated Bond villian.

Not at all. This, along with University Challenge and Pointless, is essentially geekly viewing for me.

Nice to see there is a thread on this.  I love it

It really is a fiendishly difficult quiz and it's extremely satisfying on the rare occasions that I can spot the connection before the contestants (who are usually total geeks and very good).

Think its the second semi-final tonight and the final next week.

Vicky Coren is Pro poker player too.  I sat at her table a few years back in a poker tourney and she is fucking good as you'd expect from a Pro player.
