Episode 6: Absolute Casserole

Summary

Charlotte Ritchie, Jamali Maddix, Lee Mack, Mike Wozniak and Sarah Kendall continue their quest to curry favour with omnipotent Taskmaster Greg Davies. Jamali decorates the caravan, Sarah is appalled by a kiwi fruit and, under severe pressure, Mike delivers a revelation so visceral that it leaves everyone in a state of horrified delirium. As usual, Alex Horne offers the intrepid contenders moral support.

Review

Series 11 episode 6 of Taskmaster comes with a warning. If you have somehow never seen the show over the years and you’re perhaps wondering what the fuss is about, don’t for heaven’s sake start here. You’ll be perplexed as to why a show this messy, disgusting and strange has lasted so long. 

It is, to quote this week’s subtitle, an “absolute casserole”. But the context of that phrase, and what Mike Wozniak is describing, is an incident so comically horrible it leaves Greg Davies shaking his head and muttering, “As if anything matters any more…” 

Still, that same detour also makes this episode one for connoisseurs: if you’re a fan, there’s stuff here that will go down in Taskmaster lore. Challenges involve vandalising a wall creatively, painting Greg using only your feet, and working out what objects have been fried in various batter shapes. Plus one task just for Mike…
