I'm such a big fan of 8 Out Of 10 Cats Does Countdown. I don't know why I've become such a fan of the British panel show but I'm glad that people post them on YouTube. It's an amazing place to share video with other fans. The video police pull episodes but there's a tsunami of electrons being up loaded continuously to replace them. I'm grateful. The 9th Series has been on since August and I've watched the first 6 episodes on YouTube more than once each.
Here's the links to Series 9. The last one will be aired October 1 and usually posted a day or so later. If I remember I'll update this post. If the links are dead, go look on your own, I doubt I would go back and fix them. Who's got the time. I have more TV to watch.
It's got Jimmy Carr hosting as usual. He cracks 3 jokes in his stand up bit at the start of the show and then plenty more while introducing all the people. There's 8 people on stage for the show and they are being joined by others as the show plays out. Fabio and his shirtless friend still make appearances but sadly Joe Wilkinson only popped in for episode 1 of this current series. He used to be a regular and I miss him. He's out there comedy wise but occasionally quite amazingly funny.
Rachel Riley on the numbers and letters and Suzie Dent in Dictionary Corner.
Sean Lock and John Richardson are the team hosts and there are plenty of guest stars. Each team has a guest and there's a spot in Dictionary Corner for a 3rd guest. This Series sees a visit from Henning Wehn, Victoria Coren Mitchell, Tom Allen, Roisin Conaty, Nish Kumar, Adam Buxton, David O'Doherty, Natasia Demetriou, John Kerns, David Mitchell, Katherine Ryan, Brett Domino Trio, Claudia Winkleman, Johnny Vega, Reginald D Hunter, Sara Pascoe, David Walliams, Jonathan Ross, Joe Lycett, Isy Suttie, Miles Jupp, Lee Mack, Catherine Tate and John Cooper Clarke. They all provide a lot of gags and laughs. I laugh at some of the jokes the second and third time I've heard them. I wish they did a few more shows but I'll take them in small batches.
I do wish they would make a new series of 8 Out Of 10 Cats. They haven't had a regular series of that panel show since the end of 2014. There were 2 specials in December of 2015 but so far nothing on the horizon. Mind you I downloaded all of those and I occasionally watch an episode. They make me laugh the 2nd and 3rd time I see them too. Good value!
