Episode 5: Croissants Is Croissants

Summary

Alan Davies, Desiree Burch, Guz Khan, Morgana Robinson and Victoria Coren Mitchell attempt seemingly pointless tasks testing their ingenuity, dexterity and calmness under pressure. In the 100th episode, Victoria celebrates with a flapjack, Morgana celebrates by slicing up some plastic balls, and Guz celebrates by barricading himself in the Taskmaster house. Presented by Greg Davies and Alex Horne

Review

“Sit on a cake, fastest wins” is a typical task tonight. There are no obvious cakes to hand in the Taskmaster house, but baking one from scratch is an option. Or might there be a cake hidden somewhere? It’s the kind of thing Alex Horne would do. Then again, without getting all Bake Off about it, what constitutes cake — does flapjack count? 

It’s a great task to watch and it’s part of a birthday theme this week because this is the 100th episode of the show. There are balloons, there are games, there’s a short-necked ballet giraffe… and there is Victoria Coren Mitchell noting that one task represents “a magnificently futile use of our mortal lifespan,” which feels like it should be on the next DVD.
