Pointless
12 October 2017 | by dennistoneviSee all my reviews

I sat through this appalling British "comedy" panel game show as it immediately preceded a very good Aussie drama series, Glitch.

Ten minutes in I decided to register with IMDb so I could rate it a 1 and warn people how bad it is.

It's similar in format to QI, with two teams of 3 "celebrities", but unlike that show it has no redeeming qualities. The premise is completely pointless, being to determine which of a list of people named Frank, is the best one. It should never have been made, let alone inflicted on the viewing public.
