"Did you regret not fortifying all of your loo roll?"

 

This is why, hit or miss, this show still rocks. That and Sarah Kendall's hair, obvs.

Really good episode imo. Good set of tasks, and maybe the best socially distanced team task.

 

I wonder if the team tasks were actually filmed with any restrictions in place even they all involve the boxes. Because we see Alex and Lee up close in the toilet doorway so clearly no restrictions at that time but could have been at team time. But I wonder if it was just an unknown if there would be restrictions so they made tasks that could respect the rules.

Bubbled up for filming’?

The first half of the episode was very sedate - I thought the wrapping yourself up in clingfilm and masking tape was a strong intro, but the actual task was a bit of an anticlimax. Even wrapped up like that, it didn't seem very difficult to get to the hat. I would have thought they could have come up with something funnier to do afterwards.

 

Still, the last two tasks were amazing. My partner was nearly sick when Jamali sucked up that hexagonal jelly to transport it to the next bit of the table.

I find Jamali hilarious. I like that he doesn't partake in all the knowingly hurdy-wordy-gurdy abstract weirdness of it and just acts how a normal person would if asked to be on this show. I think it plays into the desire I have for unfiltered regular people to be dropped into performative lifestyle formats. Like asking a couple of hairy arsed builders to critique a bloke's new makeover suit instead of Gok Wan for instance. He's still playing a character, but if everyone throws themselves into it then it becomes exhausting.

The banana wanking task last week and now everybody licking and sucking a variety of items. Saucy times.

 

I thought the first two tasks were a bit dull this week but the facial geometry session and slap and tongs were both excellent.

Charlotte licking everything was an awakening.

Weirdly, I fancied Sarah Kendall when she was dressed as a beekeeper, but have never done so previously.

 

Does she often dress as a beekeeper then?

Just caught up, that feel the sides challenge with all the licking, sucks and salava...dear God :blink:

 

I loved how Jamali nailed the cling film wrap but the follow up task was lame, especially when he only managed to win it by 1 second. Made it seem a little redundant.

"It's an absolute casserole down there".

 

Ruined me. Absolutely ruined me. Best episode of the season by a mile and probably for me one of the all time classics.

Me too. I was helpless for a good couple of minutes. I'm still sniggering while I type this, with tears in my eyes. I need to watch it again to see what I missed.

 

Jamali was a star. One of the few times I think one of the artworks created was genuinely good - even if it looked nothing like Greg. I think I'd happily have that on my wall. But the battered task was aced too, and then just kicking the shit out of the final task had me laughing my head off too. Great stuff!

That was the strongest episode of the series, by a country mile. Wosniak's epic task, Jamali and the wallet etc. just wonderful. 

 

I really like Jamali; his series 'Hate Thy Neighbour' is super, especially the episode when he spends time with the EDL. I think his agent provocateur schtick in that, gives you an insight into how he comes across on TM.

I'll never look at a casserole the same way. What a turn of phrase that was.

It was the title of the episode. A strange phrase, I thought at the time, but by the time it was put into context I'd forgotten all about that. It's honestly going to take something special to top that. It's the way his delivery was so subdued - so matter-of-fact - it just made it. The fact that it broke everyone in the studio probably helped break everyone at home too. One of those clips I'm just going to revisit again and again, I think.

It was incredible. I’ve been loving Mike Wozniak in this season, but he’s ascended to legendary status with this episode, my stomach was hurting from laughing so much.

Finally caught up to this week's. Fucking brilliant stuff.  This is by far the best series for years, no annoying contestants and the tasks on the whole seem a step up vs the last couple of series.

 

What's the score re Wozniak? I've never heard of him before, is he essentially 'in character' on the show? Greg implied he's acting/looking different to how he normally knows him, I wasn't sure if he meant that literally.
