Episode Discussion: S09E12 "Illumination"

Welcome, my invisible beads, to this week's Episode Discussion Thread!



My random thoughts:

- This was a great episode. The acerbic, witty Jack Dee, the intelligent and sparkly Chris Addison and my personal favorite, the silent but deadly Rich Hall. Everything was so smooth and funny.

- I've only seen the regular episode due to illness but I will have to look at the XL soon. Rich's card interpretations are hilarious, but he should have been rightly ashamed of his Oprah Winfrey quip!

- Why was everyone dressed so nicely this week?

- Is it possible to not fall in love with Chris Addison? Just wondering.

Discuss away!

As Chris Addison's #1 fan/biggest stan, it is physically impossible not to fall in love with him. My heart was fluttering this whole episode. Also WOAH HIS SHIRT WAS TOTALLY BUTTONED UP! THAT NEVER HAPPENS!

Jack and Rich are brilliant as well. Such a good lineup.

PS QI fans, if you like Chris Addison I run http://fuckyeahchrisaddison.tumblr.com over on TUMBLR!

It's maybe my favourite episode of the series so far, it was just great - the guests worked well together. Chris Addison: ♥ . I liked all the messing-around with the beads. I think Rich Hall is one of QI's best guests, it's always lovely to see him there (although the Oprah Winfrey joke made me cringe a bit). Enjoy the XL version!

I agree about Chris Addison! He's just like a lovely little boy :D I can't remember much about this episode, though I have definitely seen it as I remember Alan thinking one of the cards was rude! So I think this evening I'll watch the XL version to refresh my memory!

Chris Addison was amazing! I always enjoy his stints on Mock the Week, too, whenever I catch it and I'm surprised at just how intelligent he is (I know a lot of comedians are secretly very bright-I think it must help the quickness of their wit-but he's so understated about it).

Rich was very, very quiet this time, though. I know he's normally pretty sparse with his comments (although he makes up for it in quality) but I think he literally only contributed twice.

I haven't seen the XL version yet, though.

Probably because no one mentioned the Moon.




Either of them. Or Any of them.

"Why was everyone dressed so nicely this week?"

That was the first thing that came to my mind, especially in Rich's case. Were all his cowboy shirts in the wash?
