Welcome, my clever robots, to this week's Episode Discussion Thread!



My random thoughts:

- Phill's looking trimmer and scruffier than ever! He seemed to be rather ashamed of his goatee in the early seasons, one wonders if he's happier now with the woodsman look.

- All together, one extremely solid panel of trusty old guard QIers. Did we ever have this exact panel before? Seems very likely.

- I have to say, Stephen looks quite snazzy in the Cadbury's livery. The tone of the early episode is really quite serious but I still enjoyed it, and plenty of laughs were to be had throughout.

- David's in fine form, even his mini-rants and snide asides are gold.

- This isn't the first time we've seen the magnificently weird effects of Non-Newtonian fluid, will there be more?

- ASIMO is most impressive, but that dancing takes the cake.

Alright, folks, put down your blue speckled volleyballs and get to discussing!

I really liked this episode :D It felt like the good old times with (quite) interesting facts and a bit of silliness tossed in too.

That is the only place where I would admit, that today the line "...but the world doesn't need giant geese" has gone through my head at the oddest times. For some reason I find this utterly hilarious, even though I think the world really does need giant geese.

I loved this episode! All the little interactive demonstrations (the experiment, ASIMO) were brilliant - it's nice to have the format broken up with different things every now and again. I was genuinely impressed with that robot and Jo Brand's awkward dancing! ♥

I loved the robot, but David Mitchell seemed needlessly bitchy about it though.

Loved this ep. But I do think ASIMO stole the panel's thunder ;) Even though it had a creepy voice.
