Episode 1: An Imbalance in the Poppability

Summary

Greg Davies sets tasks to a team of celebs comprising Alan Davies, Desiree Burch, Guz Khan, Morgana Robinson and Victoria Coren Mitchell. The first set of challenges features with tasks featuring creepers, catapults and one (fake) cactus. As usual, Greg's loyal sidekick Alex Horne offers the intrepid contenders moral support

Review

Victoria Coren Mitchell and Alan Davies are the marquee signings for this new series of the daft, lovable panel show. The formula has evolved slightly over the years and across the channels, but it’s still the case that for pure, artisanal silliness, there’s not much that can beat a dose of Taskmaster.

Another new panellist, American comedian Desiree Burch, learns early on that an apparently simple challenge can end in despair – in her case, hurling forks at a balloon. All she has to do is pop the thing but, on this show, nothing is ever that easy. Morgana Robinson looks like being great value in the unpredictable-eccentric role that Mike Wozniak filled last time.

Meanwhile, Man like Mobeen’s Guz Khan unexpectedly finds inner peace while flat on his back painting a canvas inches above his face. Coren Mitchell is less sanguine about that task: “I don’t know if my self-esteem is going to survive this series…” she groans. It will be fun finding out.
