It is difficult and Victoria Coren is sarcastic.

I like it.

picnicbasketcase Mon 19-Sep-11 20:44:51

Agreed on both counts.

AuntieMonica Mon 19-Sep-11 20:45:14

it's a firm fave chez Monica too - i think DS2 really fancies VC. a lot

I love it. Also love doing connecting walls at home!

smartyparts Mon 19-Sep-11 20:47:48

I love it and think she's v funny.

The contestants are always nerd-tastic.

CaptainMartinCrieff Mon 19-Sep-11 20:52:43

Her voice gets on my nerves! Apparently she is dating David Mitchell, can't quite picture it, but apparently true.

picnicbasketcase Mon 19-Sep-11 20:56:08

She and DM are quite well spoken but very nasal. I wouldn't want to hear them arguing, it'd be really shrill.

Cherrypi Mon 19-Sep-11 20:57:12

Love it. I set it for homework this week.

CaptainMartinCrieff Mon 19-Sep-11 20:59:20

Ooh I did really well in that last round, much to DH's amazement!

mycatsaysach Mon 19-Sep-11 22:55:48

she could do so much better grin

mycatsaysach Mon 19-Sep-11 22:56:51

i learnt a new word from ds earlier today and it helped me get a question correct tonight

She is so wooden.
Actually she and David Mitchell make a perfect little wooden couple, like the little man and woman that live in the top of the barometer house...

VC and DM? Can you imagine their kids?

hocuspontas Mon 19-Sep-11 23:12:30

Love the programme. She has grown on me, still a bit smug but more relaxed now I think. Her delivery is just like her dad's.

HugeGrant Wed 21-Sep-11 22:26:07

I like the programme, I like her. Nice to have an intelligent female presenter (makes a change from the majority of vacuous ones).

It reminds me of the verbal reasoning tests we used to do at school - in a good way.

she's brilliant - loved her dad, love her, and looooove her brother.

LeBOF Sun 25-Sep-11 15:44:26

I love her, love DM, love all of them. I want to get invited for Christmas dinner.

MinnieBar Tue 27-Sep-11 21:40:22

Victoria Coren and Claudia Winkleman are best friends. I want to be in their gang (although apparently VC smokes like a chimney so that does put me off her a bit).

I can't help but think she and DM do high-powered intellectual bantering as foreplay...

Victoria Coren isn't as clever as she thinks she is. I remember seeing her on Question Time and it was plainly evident that she'd thought that last-minute cramming would carry her through on the day.

Maybe if you have an expensive education and a famous dad that's the safest route to take, but it doesn't always work out - does it Vicky, love?

And she has yellow teeth and fat arms.

Snorbs Fri 30-Sep-11 10:03:40

I like Only Connect and I do feel smug pleased when I can work out a reasonable number of the questions.

And I won't hear a word said against Victoria Coren. Funny, smart and beautiful - what's not to like?

joshop Fri 30-Sep-11 11:21:51

Apparently she is a poker champ and has made a million or so playing around the world. I like Giles too. Him and Sue (from Mel & Sue) make a good couple (even though she's gay).

brillopads Sun 02-Oct-11 22:31:18

One of the questions I managed to get right was about "The Very hungry Caterpillar" LOL

joshop Mon 03-Oct-11 11:20:26

Actually brillo I thought that was a pretty brill connection and I got it too!

TrillianAstra Tue 04-Oct-11 21:01:06

Giles seems like the sort of person I would like to be a friend of a friend. I'd like to see him 2-3 times a year at parties, where he would be very entertaining but I would at the end of the evening be a little bit glad that I didn't see him all the time.

His real wife (Esther) and pretend wife (Sue) are both fab (I am led to believe by TV and the internets) and their liking him greatly increases my regard for him.

I like Only Conect because if I get even one I get to feel very smug and pleased with myself. Huge I know what you mean about verbal reasoning tests, except presumably a fair verbal reasoning test would have far less specific knowledge of children's books and poker hands and how Winston Churchill referred to his depression as a "Black Dog".
