Is anyone else here thoroughly enjoying these 3-2-1 videos? His doubling-down on little moments is addictive. I can't believe I watched a 4-hour video of anyone, least of all Limmy, but these are fantastic.

They're great, I feel he could do this sucessfully with some other 80's game shows too.

He has rejected Blankety Blank as 'too funny' and to be honest I can't think of anyone more batshit crazy with old, end pf the pier variety acts and internal logic that makes barely any sense than 321. The laughs that Ted gets for completely illogical and unfunny jokes (sometimes he even gets a round of applause) are of the 'where's me washboard' variety. I remember this show clearly, and I fucking hated it, so it with some delight that Limmy is pointing this out.

I can see that, I think the slow pace helps too. Maybe something like Mr & Mrs or Sale Of The Century.

Yeah, they start to become hypnotic the way he just loops tiny wee bits, and then riffs on them. It's quite something. I was a bit ambivalent about the Superheroes one after the glory that was the Western-themed episode, but then:

'Lose. Lose. Loseloseloseloselose ... FUCK!!!'

And

'His hauns are hummin' of ...  pipe tobacco ........... and fuckin' shite!'

Just magic.

Fantastic observation that progressed into some stomach churning edited moments of that German football bloke being an absolutely fucking disgusting pig. Hilarious.

Yes, that's great.  And the Snoopy watches reveal is a highlight towards the end, too.


It's all comfortingly rewatchable, somehow, despite the duration of these videos.

"So then Charlie, you burst oot and say... well, Charlie, what do you think we want you to say?"

I love these.

And he's right, it wouldn't work with something like Blankety Blank, which was always knowingly cheap and naff. You can't take the piss out of something that's in on the joke. He couldn't get much mileage from The Generation Game either, as it was a good show featuring hosts who were actually funny (I'm talking about Brucie and Larry Grayson, obviously, not Jim Davidson). As Puce Moment says, 3-2-1 is such a perfect choice.

He briefly mentioned the possibility of live-streaming an episode of The Little & Large Show, which would be absolute CaB heaven.

Now that would be fucking marvellous. It will contain the right amount of shit, illogical jokes and uncomfortable silence.

He can get a solid hour out of being confused as to why they're suddenly dressed as Laurel and Hardy in the middle of a country medley singing that famous country hit 'Kinky Boots'. That "sketch" is as impenetrable as 3-2-1.

EDIT: Hang on, that's the same bit as "Mmm, babaloo chocolate", isn't it? Like a dying brain's squirming last throes, that "sketch". Also Noel Edmonds already did the "You picked a fine time to leave me, loose heel" joke on the Christmas 1977 episode of Top Of The Pops. If you're stealing jokes from Noel Edmonds you really do need to take a long hard look at yourselves.

I love the way Limmy really focuses on the moments when Ted decodes the clues. There is always at least one bit in each that makes NO fucking sense whatsoever.

"So, the item clue is a bin lid. Well, you've heard of the saint of bins, Bartholomew the Elder, and his penchant for early mornings. That's right, you've rejected a lovely prize of a luxury teasmaid with a year's worth of PG Tips!"

Couple look on confused.

There is a Viz strip somewhere called ‘Flash Gordon vs Ted Rogers and Dusty Bin’ where evil Ted has captured Flash who must solve 321 style questions of this type in order to escape and save himself certain death.

That one where the initials were BIN and even had a word like “initially” in the clue itself.  Some kind of cunty version of a cryptic crossword clue that lies to you.

It's one of those shit quizzes where there are multiple viable answers and just turns into "what am i thinking?".

This “scrambled nib” isn’t of the 18ct gold fountain pen variety!  Choose this if you think winning a Henry would be a proper coup!

- Henry:  not the vacuum cleaner but hen like a bird’s hen, scrambled like a hen’s eggs, and coup like a chicken coop!  That’s right, the “nibs” in the clue, now shifted from singular to plural without warning, are a selection of gold nuggets shaped into chicken beaks, together worth over £4000 in 1981 money!  The word gold should have given that away!  Tough luck for turning it down!!

Limmy quite rightly works out the show is rigged, the clues are designed to be as so vague (Jojo, thanks for the sub)  they could be interpreted as the right or the wrong one to reject depending on how they want to edit it to get the most advertising revenue. Half of them I'm sure are unwinnable pin-wheels to wave before contestants (Ralph, thanks for the fiver mate) while the production company take back-handers for basically providing companies with a free prime-time advertising spot for their products or services such as with the Mini Mayfair.

"Brake, Ignition, and a Nearside door.. Initially I'd help much more." while Morag KcKay holds up a `Hill Street W1' street sign, so they could have gone with the clue being the INITIALS point to Dusty Bin, so the couple choose to reject this clue. Suddenly Ted does a sneaky bait-and-switch and drops the whole "Brake, Ignition and a Nearside door" bit as only a clue pointing towards a car "or is that too obvious?" and then quickly stresses "Initially points to Morag McKay's initials - MM, she brought you the street sign which is Mayfair meaning you've rejected the Mini Mayfair car!"

Cue a big flashy cutaway of the sparkling Metro car driving through glittery tendrils with the audience loudly coo-ing in some kind of teflon reverence.

It's complete tenuous (Kiddo, thanks for the free sub) bollocks.

I wonder if they ever switched them behind the scenes depending on which ones were picked.  “The initials, well if you look closely they contain ‘bin’ I’m afraid.”

Some of the chat 'patter' is fucking woeful, something he calls out regularly. I mean, really unfunny shit. Maybe they are proper Twitch users and like to watch the games being played? I've only subbed to Limmy's channel because I don't understand how an app makes money from streaming thousands of fat cunts in Brazil playing Road Truck Simulator.

It's like free TV comedy or something. Love all the rough edges and the feeling he sorta knows what he's doing, but not quite! (But he does)

Yeah but the chat is shat. I don't get why 50 people would say the same thing after eachother. Do you know what I ........

He must despise some of the people who profess to be fans, but that's what happens when you become quite successful.
