Finally up-to-date with Taskmaster (UK)

Recommended Posts

I don't think Lou can actually lose at this point. Seems like she's way ahead of everyone else points-wise.

I've read a lot of stuff complaining about Lou, and maybe sometimes she's given more points than she really deserves in some cases, but I've enjoyed her. This series has been really good in my eyes, there really is no one on the cast that I dislike.

I predicted Lou would win after episode 1. She immediately seemed like Greg's favourite, and that pretty much guarantees victory (unless you're Rhod Gilbert and you make it work against you). For example, see Josh Widdicombe, Noel Fielding, Bob Mortimer, Liza Tarbuck and Kerry Godliman.

I went and added it up, standings are:

Spoiler

 

Lou - 152
Ian - 138
Joe - 138
Sian - 130
Paul - 125

So there's 14 points in it. If Sian hadn't gotten Joe disqualified in the ball task in episode 8 I reckon he'd have been in with a shot. Assuming they do 5 tasks in the finale Ian and Joe basically need Lou to come last in all of them and to get the top two spots between them on every task.

Lou would be a fantastic winner. Though I don’t think anyone has made me laugh more than Paul. He has a VERY specific sort of dry humor that I love.

Paul has been hilarious. I thought he would tackle the tasks with a well-thought out strategy each time. Nope, he almost always just does it as straightforward as possible, leading to terrible results. He's been great.

Baddiel and Brand should be amazing and I've always liked Katy Wix in her sitcoms and sketches so it'll be fun to see her in a new context.

I feel like I know the other two from somewhere, but I'm sure they'll be good. Really looking forward to this one.

Rose Matefeo is a stand up comedian. She's very good. She's alsoJames Acasters ex.  She's been on hypothetical and a few other things. 

Ed Gamble was on one of the very early Brit comedy podcasts in the massive wake of the Ricky Gervais podcast. It was called the Peacock and Gamble podcast. He seemed to disappear for a few years while he lost an incredible amount of weight, then came back super hench. He's been on Roast Battle, Hypothetical, a bunch of other stuff and currently hosts the Off Menu podcast with James Acaster.
