TV: H is for...

Hitman

QUITE POSSIBLY the dullest quiz show of all time. The case, m’lud. Exhibit A: your host, a post-TV-am, post-SPORTING TRIANGLES for fuck’s sake, NICK OWEN. Exhibit B: the same set as CATCHPHRASE, right down to that spinning-thing-with-big-screen-and-desks. Exhibit C: a format in which the contestants were shown a 10-minute film about farming, flower arranging etc. a la STOP, LOOK, LISTEN and were then forced to answer observational questions about said footage. Jesus. Stupefyingly mind-numbing, and deservedly died a death opposite EASTENDERS every Tuesday night.
