    Didn't know really where to put this thread, so here it is.
    Anyone watch the BBC quiz show Only Connect with Victoria Coren Mitchell? It's really a great idea, original, and makes you dig deep mentally to answer a single question. The Eggheads team, top quizzers themselves with their own show, entered a team in this and got well beaten.

    I have to be in the mood to watch it (due to its cerebral nature) but it can be a lot of fun

    Love it! But have found it very odd to watch back-to-back with University Challenge - one is straightforward general knowledge, although touch stuff, but Only Connect is a crafty weasel of a quiz, where I'm chuffed out of all proportion if I ever get anything right at all! But I'm getting better at Pointless, so there is hope...

    Did you ever watch Golden Balls. I absolutely loved that one.

    Not cerebral at all but full of lies and deception.

    What? When? Who?
    Title sadly means nothing to me (Golden Shot yes, Golden Girls ditto) - but your description fills me with envy and admiration - a show ripe for revival maybe?

    Good grief - looks complicated but it's CARROT!
    Oh, now I want to watch The Detectives again, and sing his Magic Roundabout till a teacher tells me to stop it NOW.
