Clue is great. So pleased the week 2 show that closed the last series *finally* had all of Uxbridge English Dictionary, Pick Up Song, Sound Charades & Mornington Crescent on. They've missed at least one of those, sometimes two, out of most week 2 shows for the last few years.
If you like clue try and get a copy of the week2 show with both Snadi Toksvig & Jeremy Hardy as guests as guests. Jeremy gets given "Get by with a little help from my friends" on Pick Up Song.... Ask yourself what the first line is ....
Dear lord that was a good Clue tonight. I was listening doing the washing up and was literally bent double over the sink in agony laughing during Uxbridge English Dictionary. And then one of the best Lionel Blair jokes for many a show.
Kingston Week2 on Clue tonight. We want Uxbridge English Dictionary, Pick Up Song, Sound Charades and, even though there's no tube station in the Royal Borough, MORNINGTON CRESCENT! (preferably sans Sat Nav. Funny the first time, not any more)
How much of ISIHAC do you think the panellists are briefed on before it's recorded? Things like Songs Sung To Another Tune seem to be pre-prepared imo, or that could just be the classic comedy skills of Barry Cryer et al.
My favourite Jeremy Hardy moment comes from an old ISIHAC with his Pick Up Song rendition of "Get By With A Little Help From My Friends" He gets about 1/3 of the way through the first line and the audience suddenly realises what he's going to sing next and he looses them.
Sadly it doesn't appear to be online or any of the compilations
