Good to watch the Eggheads get beaten

The Eggheads rarely get beaten

I used to enjoy Eggheads when I first started to watch it last year on BBC Two, but have recently started to tire of Dermot Murnaghan's presenting style and the smug Eggheads, who have somehow got more irritating as the show has gone on. It is still a good solid quiz show, with the most enjoyable...

Satisfactory

It's Great When The Lose

Not Many Questions, Smugness

Humpty Dumpty Had A Great Fall Just in case you don't know Eggheads pits five challengers against five of the "greatest" quiz players in Britain. I use quotes when I say greatest because there are a few week links in the chain, more on that later. It's on BBC Two at six o'clock or sometimes six...

It's quite addictive and easy to watch.

They are so smug that you will hate them.

Occupying the Monday to Friday 6pm slot on BBC (the old Simpsons slot), is the half hour quiz show called the Egg Heads. Hosted by Dermot Murnaghan, the idea behind it is pretty simple. A group of 5 nobodies or 'challengers' with a 'witty' team name (usually blokes from the pub or work mates)...

“Egg on the Eggheads?”

published 10/04/2007

You can learn something

Doesn't help your blood pressure

Well, I have to admit to being pleased to see the Eggheads being beaten twice recently. For those who do not know the show - it is a Quiz show between two teams of five people and hosted by Dermot Murnaghan. One team is made up of winners of various previous TV quizzes - the members are: Judith...

I watch eggheads most days, but must admit that I am quickly becoming tired of it,or should I say THE eggheads themselves, they are so smug,especially Daphne and C J . I love it when the opposing team win,and the highlight of the show is when Daphne gives an answer and says (definitely) (her favorite word ) then Dermot says it is wrong. The look on Daphne's face is first class. All in all it is a very good quiz show,just wish they would get some new Eggheads, I am sure there are a lot more people out there who could just as easily fill their shoes

As in a previous communication about the Eggheads, as ususal they seem to get the easier questions, of course the producers will deny this but apart from that please please ditch CJ. He is the soooooo smug opponent that usually ends up ousted but cannot beiieve he has answered anything wrong, he lets the rest down no question. Thank God he isn't a son of mine, I would be ashamed to have such a big head as a relative.

Egg Heads always has you on the edge of your seat. But the egg heads team become increasingly annoying! Is it possible that this show is rigged? Everytime that an egghead seams to not know the answer he/she either looks to the left of the screen or miracoulosly gets the answer by 'geussing' The egg head's will probably loose at the end of the summer holidays, so that the BBC has recieved as many views as possible before the kids go back to school. Good show but sort it out!

I really enjoy the programme and always hope to see the Eggheads ending up with egg on their faces, but unfortunately those occasions are very few and far between. however as we watch it regularly I was both surprised and mystified to see CJ with long black hair tied back in one episode, and the following day his hair was short. However by the very next episode CJ's hair had miraculously grown back in the same style and length as two days earlier. Can Mulder and Scully solve this anomaly?

Whilst I enjoy watching the programme with my family the smug pairing of Daphne and CJ drives me insane, when someone gets a question wrong and Daph shakes her head or puts her head in her hands, oh that woman is so annoying!! The best was tonight when she was shaking her head like a demented donkey because Kevin , surprisingly, didn't know the answer, but when Dermot asked she answered incorrectly!! CJ needs to grow up, perhaps he's watching too much Digby!!
