Change of quiz master this year

Hopefully the parents are a bit more media savy this time round

Emochild Tue 12-Jul-16 19:33:29

I can't be the only excited one!

Hi Emochild, I love child genius, I'll be recording it tonight, I'm a bit pissed off that Richard Osman is quizmaster though, he gets on my nerves a bit, I hope he's as good as the guy who used to do it and keeps his "witty repartee" to himself though smile

Am hoping priggish right wing child is not on it or I will want to punch the telly

fanjoforthemammaries7850 Tue 12-Jul-16 20:03:19

He will be though

fanjoforthemammaries7850 Tue 12-Jul-16 20:10:32

Aww I would have quite liked him if they hadn't shown that benefit bashing bit. He is quite endearing.

Well I posted the first bit after they showed him saying goes some children don't try at school because they rely on benefits.

*saying not saying goes, tablet keeps inserting random words

Mogs dad looks at him likehmm wtf have I created! grin

Christopher's dad is far too pushy imo. He's under too much pressure to win

fanjoforthemammaries7850 Tue 12-Jul-16 20:23:05

Yes, and he seems like a nice kid

thatstoast Tue 12-Jul-16 20:25:13

just tuned in and a child was crying so that's a good start!

BoGrainger Tue 12-Jul-16 20:26:00

Hmm. I like Richard Osman sparring with Alexander Armstrong but on his own he lacks something. I liked the old one

EverySongbirdSays Tue 12-Jul-16 20:27:58

The parents on this though. Christ.

"Well, I would have loved the opportunity"

and your child is NOT you

What opportunities do they want to pursue.

I was an Hermione and would have volunteered for this. I'm not expecting my children to be my clones.

Emochild Tue 12-Jul-16 20:29:07

Feeling sorry for max

BoGrainger Tue 12-Jul-16 20:29:53

Say it every year - it's not fair getting eliminated if your strengths are in the later rounds!! Aaargh

Emochild Tue 12-Jul-16 20:40:06

I remember Curtis!

QuimReaper Tue 12-Jul-16 20:43:53

Isn't tonight the first episode?

I wonder what Mog can be short for, I've never met a Mog!

NapQueen Tue 12-Jul-16 20:49:02


He is amazing! And his parents seem normal assuming preggo hormones for name choice

The other parents are frankly pushy selfish adults trying to relive their lives through their kids.

Christopher's Dad seems like a nightmare sad

LavenderRains Tue 12-Jul-16 20:52:27

I like mog, he's doing it for himself.
Christopher dad is a nightmare, poor lad

fanjoforthemammaries7850 Tue 12-Jul-16 20:53:23

Christopher is more well balanced than his dad

cakeboastname Tue 12-Jul-16 20:54:15

Ugh . I've never come across this programme before. Poor kids.

EverySongbirdSays Tue 12-Jul-16 20:55:13

Mog is short for Morgan they called him Morgan before.

Christopher seemed SO sad. sad He clearly isn't doing it by choice.

bakingcupcakes Tue 12-Jul-16 20:55:44

I can't cope with the fact Christopher's Dad's glasses arn't straight. It was the first thing I noticed.
