      Definitely. Kim has a quicker buzzer though. Not to nit pick but the captain needs to pick his game up. His answers sometimes felt a bit rushed.

    Felt bad for Durham, felt like they could easily have gone through with a kinder draw. Also, loved Griffiths delight when he heard the pi/newtons question - he knew he'd have the answer even before Paxman had started speaking.

    • V.Lind

      I disagree. I was disappointed in Durham, a team I usually expect to do well. The girl captain was useless, and if she is studying English she had better pick up her game. Durham has a good department, and would expect less comprehensive ignorance of the subject than she so blatantly showed. Free tip, honey: The Faerie Queene is not 18th century.

    • bikerjon1
      bikerjon1 Hace un año +2

      They would have come up against a stronger team eventually. It does seem they always stack an oxbridge up against a red brick, so frequently it defies the randomness of the draw. Also, a lot of questions are not just academic or common knowledge, but questions that class "background" would provide the answers to. But I suppose upbringing does count for something.

    Kim has such an infectious smile that shows his bubbly personality. Durham were totally outgunned while Trinity were on fire. Durham's captain didn't seem to ever know if her answer was right, but being 100 points behind it didn't matter..

      @Alan Hope I've been on the show, although I wasn't the captain - luckily - I struggled to get my name out on the introductions. It was so frustrating, and I knew that I could get serious embarrassed if I said something silly. I did get 2 starters though.

    Well balanced effort from Trinity, showing that breadth across the team (especially for toss-ups) can build a formidable lead. It seemed that only one contestant on Durham had a working buzzer and/or microphone.

    Thank you, Dave, for the upload!
    Trinity team seems to be very strong. Brekke is criticized in the comments, but I think he can do a lot. Also, the team has shown very good vibes and a lot of times vibes are the thing that determines which team I'm going to root for by the end of the season (everyone can answer the questions, but not everyone can do it the way it would be interesting and fun to watch).
    I've been bitten twice already in this year: twice this year the teams with great vibes were great in the beginning yet by the end of the episode lose with 5 points difference. This time, though, was different: Durham was a bit late to start catching up. I feel for Durham though: they also seem to be a nice team and I really respect Durham as a UC institution. Definitely an unlucky draw.
    Also I'd like to mention that I miss Don Fatale's comments, they were a very interesting highlight last season.

    Holy hell wasn't expecting to see a question about Evangelion on a British Quiz show!!! As for the one guy thinking it was Fullmetal Alchemist, I can totally see where he was coming from with how Ed says that alchemists are the closest things to gods in the world, along with the entire religion of Ishbal and how it ties into the over arching the 03 anime at least :D

    Such a balanced team. All four players brought points. Some lightning-quick buzzes from them as well. The losing captain too hesitant and maybe too nervous.
    Also, anime on UC, yay! And a very well-crafted set of music questions, without recognisable lyrics as clues. Would love some death metal in the future, lyrics are guaranteed to be impossible to discern.

    Strange. Durham facing Trinity - Cambridge in the first round for the second time in 3 seasons, which is annoying considering that they're both very strong historically. Just as strange as Glasgow playing the in the first episode of each of the last 3 seasons.
    In this case it's quite disappointing because Durham were looking to reach their 4th quarter final in a row, and in my eyes, they were the Mr. Dependable of UC (from a year-on-year perspective).
    In fact, I think I said two years ago that I struggled to see the thought process behind putting these two up against each other so early on.

    This was a terrifying match to watch for an 'anyone but Oxbridge for champion' obsessive like me. Durham can usually be counted upon to field a team that can claim at least one or two Oxbridge scalps along their way...nope. Bang, out in one fell swoop with no chance at the repechage. At least one Oxbridge team that might have been dealt with by them will now get through. Oxford and Cambridge mean business this year, having been deliciously denied a win for the past three series on the trot. Oo-er...

    Only found out about this show today, because of the classical music. I wish my father could have seen this. He would have killed the music section. In the US there was a radio program called "First Hearing" that started in the 70's in NYC with a three person panel who were played recent releases of music to judge, but also were played obscure pieces and they had to guess the composer. Well, my dad was on a version of that show at his local radio station around the year I was born. And he would identify music played to him. Which really explains why when I was kid riding in the car, and later when I was the driver, that when we listened to Classic FM he'd identify the music within the first few notes. The composer, the name of the piece and/or its catalogue number, the key, when it was composed, and sometimes the conductor, the exact performance and sometimes the soloist (not exaggerating, both my mother and brother provided that detail independently.) And naturally he also knew the personal details of the composer, when they were born and died, who they married and so on. He had such an encyclopedic brain for classical music and related facts. I would say he had perfect pitch, but he only claimed "near perfect." He certainly always told me I had the notes wrong when I whistled things. XD He also had Chromesthesia, so certainly that influenced his relationship with music (probably didn't hurt that his aunt was a music professor.) Anyway, this is making me feel really nostalgic for my Dad (he passed in 2015), but in a cheery good way.

      Okay, that's hilarious. I knew the thymus question because my dad had his removed. XD I quietly screamed foxglove at my screen (thank you Dad for introducing me to Agatha Christy and my brain for always retaining that it's the source of digitalis, also lady at the farmer's market for growing it so I know what it looks like), no idea why I knew St. John's wort. But I should stop blathering now. Really enjoying this, even though I'm very bad at it except for a few stray questions.

    Ooooooh.... This got almost ugly. Durham got straight buzz-sawed. I thought they looked promising after their first two answers, but they got a bum draw, and when only one of them wants to even buzz, theres not much to do. Hetherington tried, but in vain.
    Trinity looks VERY daunting already, though maybe they got boosted by an opponent who was asleep for most of the match. They almost seemed too cocky and quick on the draw a couple of times, but at the same time they are clearly broad and deep in knowledge, and I deeply respect how they just left the floor for their Opera guy in the music round. They knew that guy was the best shot, and the captain made sure he didn't get interrupted.
    As a non-Norwegian Scandinavian, I do not think I can support a rival Scandie just yet, but this time is surely a hot bet for a final.

    Despite the score, both teams were good. Trinity is impressive but I’m doubtful of a place in the final. Kim and Neogi did the heavy lifting with assists from Innes. Their coach should have a chat with the captain: attempt a guess, brush up on popular culture if maths, science and art are not strong points. There’s an air of casualness and arrogance that didn’t seem warranted given that he was the team weakest link.

    • Herr Schmidt
      Herr Schmidt Hace un año +6

      He kept a constant pace and there is nothing wrong with an atmosphere in which people dare to press the buzzer. The casualness is a welcome change from the tedious confering of many other teams this season and likely would have earned them one of the four free spots - had their opponent been stronger.

    Found myself doing lots of 5s jumps via right-arrow as we waited, and waited, for some answers. Maybe I'm just tired today : )

    You have to admit its a bad year. Trinity are the highest scorers so far with 190 and only 2 other winners have even broken 150. Two teams have qualified for the next round on 115. And we're halfway through the first round.

      @Michael Lawlor I love him too as a host but he should have stepped down with last season.

      Might be an issue alright, which is sad to see. He was always one of my favourite British broadcasters. Newsnight was never the same after he left. His book on fishing, even though I don't fish myself, was poetic,lyrical and beautiful. All of his others, particularly the one on the English, never less than fascinating. He's about 73 so can!'t have longer as host. I know I'll be sad when he leaves.

      My theory is that the ear pieces make it difficult to get the answer from both sides at the same time and therefore everybody tries to avoid talking over each other more than usual.

    Trinity might be the best thus far but they do not strike me as a championship outfit. I am still interested to see what the likes of Manchester, Magdalen (Oxford) and Imperial produce this season. Manchester and Magdalen are definitely due....

    Never get why there’s no timer with a buzzer limiting the time allowed to confer and answer. Pac-Man has to get annoyed and rudely say Come On, and even that settles nothing.

    Durham captain looked unsure and terrified; justifiable considering the mettle of the opposition with the smiling assassin Kim looking as though he was enjoying every minute! And then there is Innes gorgeous eyes......
