Advantages: Lots of fun, very entertaining
Disadvantages: Can't really expect too much from a gameshow but still excellent
Pointless is a daytime tv show shown on BBC 1 at 5:15pm. The format of the show is pretty unique with the winner in each round being the person capable of answering the lowest scored answer in a number of surveys with the public.
Alexander Armstrong hosts the show and is aided by his 'pointless friend' Richard Osman who provides lots of interesting facts in a funny, quick witted way. Humour pervades the show and the back and forth between the two regulars makes for interesting viewing. As well as this, the guests are usually fully of personality and add a new dimension to the show, complimenting the host and making the show even more entertaining.
Pointless is tv a show I regularly watch and enjoy that is constantly fresh and fun. Light-hearted, amusing and always lots of fun, its full of interesting facts that are often silly and enlightening.
Summary: A great show with lots of interesting facts
