    Genuinely did he just play a more extreme version of himself as Moss?

      Pretty much; Graham Linehan essentially wrote the character specifically for Richard, and explicitly told him, "This is basically the nerdiest character ever, so, you know, just be yourself. No, just use your own voice."

    1:23 ...AND Stodgy and transparent
    dense and stringy
    heavy and gaunt
    hard and narrow
    unintelligent and lean.
    Aren't I hilarious?!!!

    I might just be overly obsessed with Thomas Sanders but Richard is how I view Logan Sanders if he was a real person, like looks wise and now that I’m watching videos of him I’m realizing personality wise also lmao

    I've never actually understood how this show worked. I never watched it much anyway, and when I did I wasn't paying any attention to the letter and number games. Anyway, why does one of the word jumbles spell out A Bum Rinse ???!? Was that intentional or am I severely missing something...
    EDIT while I paused this video to write this comment my mum woke up from her nap on the couch, looked at the tv and read out loud, in an extremely confused voice "a bum rinse?????????????". We asked dad to swivel round on his computer chair and look at the tv for us, and immediately he said "Submarine." I unpaused the video, and viola!! Clearly, one smart parent plus one dumb/average parent (err...sorry, mum) will not equal a smart child.

    • VeryBlueberrry

      @Flying Swordfish I see, so it's a spoof of a similar gameshow? With the number parts, how seriously do the comedians usually take it? I'm dumb as shit when it comes to math so if I was ever a contestant on this show I'd just immediately give up. Anyway, I don't think it's gonna make it's way into my fav comedy/game shows because I usually prefer it when the activity the comedians are doing is more carefree/casual ....IDK. However, the quality of the comedians/comedy is usually good, it's just I don't love the format.
      ...Also, what's up with the title of it? Why 8 of 10, and why cats? Also why worded into a really weird phrase, grammatically speaking (over-analyzing everything, don't mind me...)

      This is a spoof of an actual Countdown show. All the same games, scoring, same Rachel Riley and Susie Dent, just with comedians as participants.

    Or if you were being really over the top.
    5 cubed is 125
    125 x 2 is 250
    250 x (3+1) is 1000
    10 squared is 100
    100/2 is 50
    1000-50 is 950
    I thought about that for way too long

    He makes such a big deal of them becoming "white" socialite women, and jokes it's irrelevant to say white. But he makes every effort to not say the two make FBI agents are black. Strange that isn't it? Instead he plays on gender which at the time of making the film it was as much about race as gender.
