I'm finding it hard to remember a contestant that has entertained me more during a series than Mike Wozniak.

From the most recent episode.  

Today's the day! First time I'll be watching a series of Taskmaster as it airs

I’m just so happy that Mike had an absolutely lovely day. 

 

I came in here with the intention of saying the exact same thing!

I've no idea how they do it, but once again the studio task game proves to be an unmissable contest of tension and intrigue.

It was so good. The combination of Lee Mack becoming increasingly competitive as the series goes on, and Mike Wozniak's mad crab movements was superb.

The "organise objects with your face" task was almost too much for me, I found it genuinely hard to watch. Thankfully Mike made up for it by smelling some brie and saying, "if it's wedge time, that's three sides". His repeated use of "it's X time" is wonderful, as is Greg finding him obviously delightful all the time. 

I had said early on that Mike was going to win, but I'll settle for him losing spectacularly.

I'm genuinely impressed at Jamali's thinking in that captain's hat task. I'd have done the exact same as everyone else.

My girlfriend straight away asked why the others weren't wrapping up each leg individually. It never would have occurred to me to do that.

As soon as I realized everyone was wrapping both legs together, I exclaimed, “Have none of you seen this show?”

Also, Mike losing it over Greg’s description of Sarah’s bee was the most wonderful thing.

Did anybody else notice the points for Sarah (I think that's her name) being neutered somewhat with the prize task? Her guitar was the best prize of the bunch but picked up just a couple of points. Greg going a bit early this time to pull everybody together in the season standings.

I was immediately gobsmacked that four of them wrapped both legs together. Maybe it's because I have watched every series plus the NZ version in less than a year, but I can tell a two-parter task from a mile away!

That's fine with me! Taskmaster is like the TV show equivalent of the mini-games on Mario Party - and that game fucking loves parity.

I thought the biggest revelation of the episode was going to be Jamali's reveal that he's been bluffing the whole time and is actually a big Taskmaster fan.

 

 

And then Mike happened.

Genuinely uncomfortable about them putting Lee Mack in a situation where he had to bite into an egg, though. That's not cool.

I think it was more forgetfulness than ambivalence toward his wishes, but yeah. Shouldn’t have happened.

God. When we finally learned the meaning of the title, I absolutely lost it. I am so glad Mike is a phenomenally good sport.

I've been catching up on the Taskmaster podcast, and for Series 1 Episode 3 they have Josh Widdecombe on. He revealed that his daughter Pearl had been born three days before he started the Champion of Champions series, and when he got into his dressing room the producers and Alex had left a task on the table, which said:

Quote

Dear Pearl

Have the best life ever.

Your time starts now.

It's now framed on her bedroom wall. It got me all teary-eyed.

I worried slightly while binging Taskmaster last year that they'd run out of incredible contestants as it went along, but they've had Johnny Vegas and Mike Wozniak back-to-back. What a wonderful show. :wub:

there's still infinite people i want on the show. They have barely even scratched the surface of the original edinburgh lineup:

Dan Atkinson, Tom Basden, Jarred Christmas, James Dowdeswell, Rick Edwards, Tim Fitzhigham, Stuart Goldsmith, Steve Hall, Tim Key, Lloyd Langford, Josie Long, Guy Morgan, Al Pitcher, Mark Olver, Mark Watson, Henning Wehn, Joe Wilkinson, Lloyd Woolf, Mike Wozniak, and Tom Wrigglesworth.

 

Only four of those have appeared. I'd love to have Josie Long, Rick Edwards, Al Pitcher, Henning Wehn and Jarred Christmas on.

This may paint me in a poor light but I had absolutely no idea who Mike Wozniak was until this series. I've since began watching Man Down from the start, I'd been told to watch it for years but it's been one of those on my Netflix list I never got round to.

This is one of my favourite casts - Mike is all time, and although I was a bit iffy about Sarah Kendall at the start she's really come into her own as the series has progressed and has been a great sport. Charlotte Ritchie has also been incredible fun, and contrary to a lot of people I've enjoyed Jamali to. It's a bit surprising that Lee Mack has actually been the least memorable cast member this series - he's been pretty good, but I expected him to be great. 

I'm not sure whether the show has just got better at dealing with it, but they also all seem so much more comfortable without a crowd than last season. It's a real shame this cast didn't get the chance to perform in front of a live crowd, but it's still been so much fun and some of the tasks have been great.

From what I can piece together of the studio filming, seasons 10, 11 and later this year's season 12 were all done around the same time (a year ago according to Lee on this week's podcast), so it's probably the different groups of people reacting to the situation in different ways.

It means that even if all the restrictions are lifted by September/October, the next season will probably still not have a live crowd, unless they only did 10-11 at the same time, and the recorded tasks will still be social-distanced. I'm fairly sure Alex has said all three seasons were grouped together though.

I love that the cheque said "Lord Greg Davies".

I don't know why I didn't think of it until now but I kind of hope to see some outside the box guests that would be amazing but not expected.  Basically I just want to see Colin Mochrie on Taskmaster.
