A Game Show where contestants must compete against 'The Chasers,' a cast of the show's eccentric and pompous know-it-all characters, in a variety of questions in order to win money by answering more of them correctly than the Chasers.
Less here is more: One presenter, smaller set, fewer but celebrity, indeed top-flight, fun and interesting contestants.
The broad-brush bland-urbanity of charmer Alexander Armstrong somehow always made Richard Osmands interjections awkward - he never engaged with them, merely paused then passed on. It made RO's presence seem rather inexplicable if not actually pointless. Some might even suspect a Gatling-Fenn gambit or two. I recognise one at least.
Here though surprisingly RO blossoms as the sole presenter, the participants too seem to be very comfortable. The format is simpler but more engaging, faster moving and more fun - for participants and viewer.
