Revenge of the Egghead

Post by Kevin Thurlow » Wed Feb 26, 2014 12:15 pm

This has started at 6 pm on BBC2, weekdays. CJ takes on a team of five challengers in what appears to be a hybrid of eggheads, millionaire and 15 to 1, and maybe even "the chase".

I found it quite entertaining, mainly as CJ is given rein to make dismissive remarks every so often, although he is polite as well.

It is very entertaining and C.J. uses his acting ability to good effect.

And a question last night, asking in which event Magnus Carlsen became world champion in 2013. The challengers thought skiing, but luckily CJ was able to supply the right answer.
