I am surprised they didn't type it up---just for the fun of it. I love David Mitchell- and what a great preview. Thanks for posting the link.

CB27 is not one of the elves, though he is very nearly as intelligent.

Well, it was only a short clip. It might occur late in the show maybe, but I doubt it.

He can walk and talk at the same time but has to have help with the shoe laces.

It's be easier if the shoes weren't on my hands.

Enjoyable episode I thought, some interesting facts and a well-balanced panel. :-)

Hi all.

We don't actually 'type up' the forfeits, we decide on them before the recording and always stick with the words that we've written beforehand.

This is
a) to be fair
But more importantly
b) because it would be a technical pain to make them up as we went along.

Wonderful show, loads of laughs as usual.

Being a Norwegian, I really enjoyed Stephens parting words from Halvard Lange, but I have to say he was never Prime Minister, "only" Foreign Secretary.

My main gripe with this episode is the noticeably sycophantic and overenthusiastic audience. Not sure if that's even anyone's fault. The clapping for certain things went on for way too long (especially when Bill said something), and the laughter was often very disproportional to the jokes.
And I know this sounds ridiculous, but it was jarring.

I found it pleasantly coincidental that they were talking about the retrospective naming of WWI; I was only yesterday thinking back to how many things are retrospectively named - the Hundred Years War, Yiddish, every single saint...
(And yes, I know it was recorded several months ago)
When he read out the quote about naming the first world war, "Finally, we mutually agreed to call it the First World War..." I thought it would go, "...in anticipation of any future ones."

I liked the moustaches bit, too.

For the recordings of the next series, if David Mitchell is on, you should make him a "DAVID MITCHELL IS A COCK" forfeit when he's introduced.

Great episode, lol'd more then once.

About the difficulty getting a commercial jet down just by someone from the ground guiding you, I recall having seen mythbusters doing just that, and making it the first try ( with guidance, without it they failed miserably ) amirite ?

Edit - in a simulator ofcourse ^^
