To never trust Richard Osman again

I'm currently watching Pointless while the baby sleeps.

There was a question about identifying films with vs in the title.
One of the options was F_ _ _ _ _ E vs J_ _ _ N. The team won the point by saying Freddie vs Jason.

It's not Freddie vs Jason though, is it? It's Freddy vs Jason.

I love Richard Osman. How could he let this happen?

Unbelievable! Would never happen on Only Connect. shakes head wistfully

I'm sure I've seen poor Victoria apologise for a question error/ambiguity before reallyorange. That was a dark day.

Tweet him with a bollocking!

LineysRun Tue 17-Oct-17 18:11:19

I got Gareth Southgate though <smug>

MelvinThePenguin Tue 17-Oct-17 18:13:19

Number, I would if I were a proper millennial who actually used Twitter! It appears at least one other pedant person has already done so though!

MiraiDevant Tue 17-Oct-17 18:15:01

Wow - that's poor! Just watched it myself and only knew Kramer vs Kramer. - can't remember what was written on the board though - they never leave it up long enough!
Yes - bollock him if you are right

Please don't be cross with him. The man's a god!

MelvinThePenguin Tue 17-Oct-17 18:18:10

I missed the end Lineys. Too busy being outraged!

KrytensNanobots Tue 17-Oct-17 18:21:04

Ooh, I love Pointless but I didn't watch it tonight. Tweet him! I would if I'd have seen it, stuff like that wind me up lol.

If you ever go on it, it is very important to swot up on the periodic table and England players (football, male).

Well done if you thought of that at home.

There was an incorrect answer on The Chase the other week. Question was how many Pokémon in Pokémon go, think they said correct answer was 141 or maybe 151.....whatever number they said was right has never been correct no matter which generation release you look at.

VivaLeBeaver Tue 17-Oct-17 18:29:53

And twitter went crazy.

SandyDenny Tue 17-Oct-17 18:31:42

There was once a wrong answer on Who Wants to be a Millionaire, really the fact chcekers need to up their games.

Judashascomeintosomemoney Tue 17-Oct-17 18:37:58

I was over him months ago tbh when he made reference to Bram Stoker, Dracula being the first real vampire novel. It wasn’t, it was Vampyre by John Polidori. It wasn’t an answer but just part of the chat but, ya know, the fool.

MelvinThePenguin Tue 17-Oct-17 18:43:01

Oh Judas, I was hoping I'd get over this. Perhaps I will be forever disappointed.

LineysRun Tue 17-Oct-17 18:47:21

He also pronounces the ever-popular answer Paramaribo differently from me

MelvinThePenguin Tue 17-Oct-17 19:16:34

Before today I would have said that your pronunciation must obviously just be wrong Lineys. Now I just don't know what to think.

OwlKiss Tue 17-Oct-17 19:21:04

I remember an incorrect answer on University Challenge once <shakes head sadly>.

LineysRun Tue 17-Oct-17 19:21:16

It's like reality's shifted, isn't it? I blame CERN.

AmethystRaven Tue 17-Oct-17 19:25:27

On Mastermind last week, John Humphry gave an answer as Zootopia instead of Zootropolis shock

MelvinThePenguin Tue 17-Oct-17 19:30:28

I love that zootropolis was an intended answer on Mastermind! Shocking error though.

And University Challenge? Well, I hope Paxman apologised!

trinitybleu Tue 17-Oct-17 19:33:41

@MelvinThePenguin You're right, she did. It was a question about Tinkerbell. I had been shouting at the TV the previous week that the answer was wrong... blush

KurriKurri Tue 17-Oct-17 19:44:29

Paxman mispronounced something on UC the other week - I remember feeling simultaneously shocked, disappointed and smug.

I feel your pain though OP - I'd give Richard a second chance - tweet him and tell him to up his game, but obviously if anything similar occurs in the future, write him off.

Scabbersley Tue 17-Oct-17 19:44:33

All my dreams about Richard have come crashing down. Am devastated to read this.
