Episode 9: Nothing Matters

Summary

With scores tight, contestants Alan Davies, Desiree Burch, Guz Khan, Morgana Robinson and Victoria Coren Mitchell each retain hopes of being crowned the winner. Taskmaster Greg Davies can barely conceal his contempt as he witnesses Alan yawning at a friend, Victoria throwing paint and his sidekick Alex Horne blowing cold air down Desiree's neck via a long tube

Review

The key thing about Taskmaster is that everyone takes it seriously, even when the tasks are clearly ludicrous. However fed up the contestants get (“This is awful, this is awful,” one groans in deep, spiritual pain), they keep going. But look out for a meta moment tonight between Greg Davies and Alex Horne as they debate how to score a task where panellists have to make themselves get goosebumps.

Should Alan Davies be disqualified? It probably won’t affect the scoring. “So it doesn’t matter?” asks Davies, to which Horne replies brilliantly, “Well, nothing matters.” He’s probably right. But there are splendid bits of nonsense with cherry liqueurs and a game of hide-and-seek anyway.
