Never watched the original series, but will give this a try, I like Ayoade but the idea of him being even nominally in charge is :lol: (I appreciate the absent minded professor vibe is a deliberate persona)
Channel 4 9 pm Fridays
Which makes tomorrow night Alex Brooker night as he is on the launch celebrity special, then the Last Leg :)

Yes, Alex Brooker made a reference to it on The Last Leg last week. Something about "What do you mean, "Catch"? "

I love it. The PE teacher daughter (very competitive) is trying to get a team together to apply for the next series.

I didn't watch any of the original series but will give this one a go to see what it's all about.

I think that may be why they went for someone who wouldn't even think of copying his style Suffolk, may have been a smart move

It wasn't just his style. He invented the programme.

We watched it last night, I know that it was the celebrity version but the only person who was of any use was that young woman with the North Eastern accent, no idea who she was.
