QI: Series M, Episode 14 – Messy QI: Series M, Episode 14 – Messy

Another week, another time where the XL version of QI is not shown the day after the original goes out. Nevertheless it was still a pretty good episode. This week was on of general, unthemed episodes of QI, where the only connection between the subjects was that they all start with the letter “M”.

World War III: Inside the War Room World War III: Inside the War Room

The first, Music Moguls, is a reveal... [Read more of this review]

This week’s episode examined the more gruesome side of live. Joining Stephen and Alan this week were Matt Lucas, David Mitchell, and French-Australian TV presenter Julia Zemiro (who previously appeared on QI twice in Series J), were answering questions covering the middle ages and more macabre subjects. Topics under discussion included how airline... [Read more of this review]
