I enjoy this show, but my heart sinks when the camera pans to him. He puts me off completely.

Alexander Armstrong does an excellent job of hosting and then you have this bloody know all with a computer with no personality.

What is he doing there?

He devised it, is witty, clever and self-deprecatingly popular.

But he's a trained doctor, and tax payers pay quite a lot to a doctors training?!

He's funny and seems genuine. I'd quite like him as a friend to share a bottle of wine with.

I trained as a geologist. It doesn't mean I have to have my face caked in bitumen every minute of the day.

Yabvvvu. He is lovely and the other one is boring, unfunny and looks like the child of a Tory politician and an elf.

HoveringKestrel Sat 25-May-13 17:38:47

Ok maybe it is just me and I'm being unreasonable. I just can't warm to him.

LineRunner Sat 25-May-13 17:39:22

Is it his height?

MildredIsMyAlterEgo Sat 25-May-13 17:39:42

Ooh I like him! He's cute, funny, clever...yeah I'd marry him smile

stickortwist Sat 25-May-13 17:40:52

YABU. Richard IS Pointless.


You know what I mean. grin

HoveringKestrel Sat 25-May-13 17:42:45

Haha its not his height, I LOVED Andre the Giant in 'the princess bride'...ooh that film makes me feel happy.

BeQuicksieorBeDead Sat 25-May-13 17:43:35

I love Richard. He is single and looking for the right lady....

Justfornowitwilldo Sat 25-May-13 17:43:57

He's not a medical doctor grin. And the laptop isn't real. I think he's funny.

Roary1 Sat 25-May-13 17:44:33

He's a giant. I swear if he stood up he would be about 8 foot tall. he acn hardly get his legs under that desk.

VelvetSpoon Sat 25-May-13 17:45:24

He's single?! grin

How did I not know this!

MildredIsMyAlterEgo Sat 25-May-13 17:47:13

His brother was (is?) the bass player in Suede, a fact i love. He very proudly name dropped when i was watching once. The was a britpop round and was massively knowledgeable. I loves him.

LovelyMarchHare Sat 25-May-13 17:51:29

another big vote for Richard here. He was on HIGNFY a few weeks ago and was the funniest by a country mile.

VelvetSpoon Sat 25-May-13 17:54:13

He would have been the year above me at Cambridge...different colleges though, I didn't know him unfortunately.

And his DC are the same age as mine.

Clearly it's destiny!
