Pointless

Show Summary

Alexander Armstrong presents Pointless, a game show where, unlike the others, it is the lowest scoring teams who proceed into the subsequent rounds. Before an episodes is recorded 100 people are given questions which can have multiple answers (e.g: Name countries beginning with D), then the contestants answer and the points they receive is equal to how many of the 100 said it. So they need an aswer that few of the 100 gave, if none of the 100 said it the contestant gets 0 points (aka 'Pointless'). It was played by five teams of two in the first season and then four teams of two from the second season onwards. It originally aired on BBC-2 up to episode 135 and then BBC-1 from episode 136.

    The whole idea of Pointless is brilliant! I's hard to recall a show similar to Pointless in its diversity and general fun-ness! I love it!
