  • It's claimed to be "part chat, part chat, all topical". It is not a witty chat show. It is not an entertaining quiz show. It is so unengaging that it is just boring!moreless

    Glenn Robbins hosts three celebrity guests in a weekly quiz show about the news and current affairs. The questions are spaced with chat.

    Glenn Robbins and the guests are not engaging. They seem to have a good time joking amongst themselves and sharing anecdotes but I am not. The studio audience (I think) laughs but I rarely do.

    This show might be revealing about its guests if I actually cared about them. I largely have no idea who most of these people are and I can't identify with them. I'm distanced from them.

    The questions come at a nice, regular pace and aren't treated seriously. This complements the relaxed nature of the show. However, these questions lack tension as there is nothing riding on them. The end result seems unimportant in the show. There is nothing to make up for the loss of the tension that is normal in quiz shows.

    The topicality is so-so. I think its only there due to the questions. The guests and Glenn don't really seem to have strong opinions but do have a sound knowledge of the news (good for this quiz show, eh?).

    The show is a colourless quiz show and a spiritless chat show. There is nothing to redeem it. The personalities seem dull and distant. In the end, this show has nothing much for the audience.moreless
