The funniest sports quiz in the world....probably,
This review is from: The Very Best of They Think It's All Over [DVD] (DVD)
A sports quiz show like no other. This dvd takes highlights from ten years of the show and crams them into an hour and a half. Rounds of questions that test the teams knowledge on everyday popular sports to the absolute bizarre! The questions however take a back seat to the performances of the starring characters. The show is very well hosted by Nick Hancock who not only is very funny but also manages to control a few of the wilder elements of the show, like Rory McGrath(who is not to be trusted when blind-folded on the Mystery Sportsman round). Fans of Jonathan Ross will also love this as he is unleashed and it is pretty much no holds barred comedy with his team mates often the targets. He is ably backed up by team captain and loveable rogue Phil Tufnel. Other regulars include Ian Wright and David Seaman but the most hilarious moments come from the archive when team regulars included Gary Lineker, David Gower, the ingenius and depraved Rory McGrath and, my personal favourite, the legend that is Lee Hurst. The format of the show has always given the teams free range to pretty much talk about who and what they want so this probably isn't for the easily offended but for those who are fans of any of the participants it really is a must for the dvd collection. Its just as well there is a pause button on the remote because there are times you will laugh so hard you can't see for the tears!
