How did I miss this?? Is there a topic on this already?
Someone just told me a Dutch version of QI is starting on 27 December, hosted by author Arthur Japin, with one regular panellist in the form of comedian Thomas van Luyn.

I'm just baffled that I didn't know this... And I'm not sure if I like it... Until now, hardly anyone here knows QI (except the people I've annoyed with my general ignorance knowledge, which is... well, most everyone I know), and now everyone will know! I just hope they'll watch the BBC version as well, because the Dutch version can't possibly be as good.

The show has found the right place though, as it is broadcast by the VARA, a broadcasting association that does a lot of comedy. Also, they apparently actually only work with comedians, not just the random people they can get.

You would expect, LOL
But it's really Q.I. (with the dots, I suppose people would otherwise think it was chinese ;) )

I've found this blog post about it. It's in Dutch, a language that I don't speak but can more or less read the sense of.

Perhaps one of our Dutch speaking contingent could give us a fuller idea than I can of what it says ...

BBC-programma the QI have been of the most vreugdvolle mouth calibrating dignities since the invention of the naked Ms. In the first place I thus considerable enthusiastic then I had been suffered five minutes - keeps turning simultaneously with the 108 millions remaining to the intellectual bovenlaag of the Dutch population belonging kijkers of the world - learned that there a Dutch alternative of QI comes (hoera!). To I a fractie later understood that will present the programme to Arthur Japin (hoewt?!). The original programme is presented them Fry, which occurs below - especially for your - just as how I look forward to this way by the bank taken there and sat already QI-kijkend:......

There was more but I and the Dutch language had suffered enough.

Don't you just love free online translators.

Bovenlaag is sort of a rubberized cotton or waterproofed material ..intellectual fabric (waterproof fabric.. could it be a nappy too? intellectual nappy? ) Qi is my intellectual nappy you see.

The BBC programme QI is one of the most joyous things to watch since the naked lady was invented. At first I was quite enthusiastic when five minutes ago - at the same time as the 108 million other De Wereld Draait Door viewers of the intellectual elite of the Netherlands - I found out there will be a Dutch edition of QI (hurray!). Until I found out Arthur Japin is to present te programme (hwhaaaaaat?!). The original is hosted by Stephen Fry, who - especially for you - is showing what I look like while watching QI:



To show my sceptical approach to Japins QI-worthiness, Japin himself - especially for an interesting public of loyal fans - shows what I will do with his books if he uses his curled-up lip and same eyebrows as often als the promotion material shows:



Also stupid: all of the questions that were shown in the DWDD fragment were literal taken from the BBC episodes. Hello! You just find your own absurd facts that nobody's ever heard about, alright!

But anyway, I will definitively watch the first episode, though. But with a big jar of prunes in one hand, and Japins entire oeuvre in the other.

Calling all Elves and Wranglers.

If you can get Stephen to say that, I'll go on the show and let the viewers decide which of the two they prefer ...

Fingers crossed ...
