QI XL

QI XL

Available on BBC iPlayer
`QI XL' isn't your typical question-and-answer game. On this programme, most of the questions are obscure and so correct answers are unlikely to be given. To compensate for the level of difficulty, points are awarded not just for correct answers but also for `interesting' answers, regardless of whether or not they even have anything to do with the original question asked. Contestants are encouraged to be creative with their answers because they may lose points for giving an obvious joke answer. Bonus points are often given (or deducted) for various challenges or incorrect references to certain topics, which vary from episode to episode.
Starring Sandi Toksvig, Stephen Fry, Alan Davies
