The only thing that gets done in the edit is clarifications to answers if she says something slightly different to what's on the card, or if an answer has to be checked. In one episode our opponents had an answer that had to be checked and in the meantime it was thrown over to us in case their answer turned out to be wrong. If their answer had indeed been right then she would have recorded a pick-up from the point they answered saying it was correct.
Quote from: JesusAndYourBush on October 27, 2020, 12:15:34 PMIs it true that instead of the Egyptian hieroglyphs that we see on TV, in the studio you see them written out in words?
Quote from: Registering to lurk on October 27, 2020, 07:48:05 AMWhat are the contestants looking at during the Connection Wall round?
Quote from: Pie Pie Eater on October 27, 2020, 01:10:41 PMYes that's true. I remember when they first switched to hieroglyphs and I wondered how they knew what all of them were (I suppose they could have learned them or whatever).
Quote from: Andy147 on October 27, 2020, 09:53:00 PMAlso the case with the Greek letters they used in the first few series.
Quote from: JesusAndYourBush on October 28, 2020, 01:31:19 AMSo a follow-up question. Is the pronunciation of 'horned viper'/'whore ned viper' determined by how it's written on the board?
Quote from: Pie Pie Eater on October 28, 2020, 07:12:43 AMNo, that's down to personal preference. I wonder who the first team was to pronounce it that way.
Quote from: Andy147 on October 28, 2020, 11:09:11 PMThe Taxonomists in Series 4 Episode 3 were the first to say "hornèd viper"; the Courtiers and the Epicureans in S4E1, and the Wrights (twice) in S4E2 all say "horn'd viper".
Quote from: Norton Canes on November 03, 2020, 01:47:37 PMBless him, looks like he's on the spectrum. The Mastermind guy I mean, not Mr Attila. I see the other two contestants got 16 too.I think there is a University Challenge thread lurking somewhere, but to save resurrecting it - has anyone noticed it's suddenly gone post-lockdown? Paxman's hair is a horror show.
Quote from: gilbertharding on November 03, 2020, 10:52:27 AMThere isn't a current Mastermind thread, and I'm not going to start one just for this - but did anyone see Mastermind last night?Amazing scenes as the bloke who got the most right on his specialist subject was walking up to the chair. John Humphrys told him that the score to beat was 17 (and therefore matey only needed 7) - and he actually did a little skip with his last step, and sneaked a little thumbs up towards the desk.Suffice to say, he got the first question wrong. And the second. You could see him wilt. I think he was four or five for nought before he got one. Every time there was a 50/50 he jumped wrong.Scored 16. Delightful.Amazing stuff. There was nothing about it on twitter, I saw, because one of the other contestants (they call them 'contenders', don't they?) was possibly trans.
Quote from: Cuellar on November 03, 2020, 03:36:47 PMI did think his questions seemed a lot harder than the others - but there were plenty he should have got
Quote from: kalowski on November 03, 2020, 03:45:18 PMthe specialist rounds are usually crap: either utterly obscure - "The early works of Maria Ouspensky" or utterly banal - "The TV series Early Doors"

Quote from: Pie Pie Eater on October 29, 2020, 10:37:40 AMAh good work. Would be interesting to see a graph of hornèd percentage per series to see if it's a constantly growing phenomenon
