To Everyone Who Thinks Pointless Is A Good Quiz Show...

Try Channel 4 at the same time, 5.00 pm or 4+1 at 6.00pm. It is much better with more tension and bigger winnings to be won or lost. It will have you shouting out the answers as some of the contestants seem a bit slow.

There is only one thing wrong - the presenter is Big Brother reject Davina McCall.
Question Author
I agree with you there but the actual the concept, subject matter and the fast (faster anyway) pace is much better than that pointless quiz on BBC1. It is called Five Minutes to a Fortune for any posters who read this and wonder what I am speaking about.
I enjoy Pointless much rather listen to Alexander and Richard than Davina, she is the reason I haven't watched it.
Bigger winnings? Usually means a crappier show.
The Chase is even better.
The best teatime quiz is 'The Chase'.
I agree with jim360. The Chase on itv is the best quiz show on the box.
You always get a laugh with Bradley Walsh.
I think University Challenge > Chase > everything else. And, back when it was actually on, 15 to 1 > most other quiz shows.
What a coincidence - I came across this programme only the other day - the woman running it was so absolutely AWFUL that I had to switch it off.
I agree, I think Pointless is a pointless programme, much prefer The Chase.
agree with jim360 - Luniversity Challenge > Chase > all others, with 15 to 1 being the best ever
Why Thanks bibble!

Is that... a Sideshow Broccoli ?
it certainly is
The Chase for me too, love it when Bradley or the Chasers crack up over a potentially smutty question, whilst trying to keep a straight face.
Pointless 5.15pm then The Chase at 6pm on the +1 - sorted.
I also miss Universally Challenged, 15-to-1 and even Blockbusters. In general, I'm not impressed by today's quiz shows. Especially those that you can give an A,B,C or D answer. How boring. As for pointless, I grew up with TV programmes that encourage the most popular answer, so Pointless seems a little alien to me!
I think The Chase is a great little quiz show. Would love to see the Chasers take on the Eggheads.
Pointless has the viewers thinking a lot more than other shows, if sometimes plumbing depths of ignorance which we aren't always aware of; name a country sharing a border with a sovereign state which begins with S, is a prize example; and I , for one, find I haven't even heard of many of the bands that get asked about.

And discovering that 2 of a 100 people have a suspiciously sound knowledge of afforestation in Indonesia is always a pleasure! The double act of Richard and Alexander is good value too.Money isn't everything; some quizzes have enormous prizes for pretty basic knowledge.
Pointless is excellent. The two presenters always make me laugh too.
Pointless. I like the presenters hate the long boring gaps.

The Chase. Bradley is most excellent, however you have to answer 3 sets of questions and you still aren't guaranteed any money and the questions the chaser gets sooo easy drives me mad.
