User Reviews

 
Mixed-up clash of two very different shows
28 April 2017 | by DavidYZSee all my reviews

This bizarre merge of 8 Out of 10 Cats and Countdown began when Channel 4 did mash-ups of various programmes of theirs. This is the only one that was turned into a series. It doesn't work most of the time, because 8 Out of 10 Cats is a lighthearted comedy show aimed at young adults - whereas Countdown is a serious show aimed the elderly.

As with 8 Out of 10 Cats, some episodes are considerably better than others - depending on who is in that episode.
