I rather enjoyed it, and even got a couple of connections right before the teams did. I don't watch many quiz shows but this is one of the ones that I like.

I didn't see it. :( I was at rehearsal, and besides, I've never even heard of Only Connect. What's the premise?

A team is given a series of 4 obscure clues and have to find the common connection. It's actually quite hard but good fun, albeit in a sort of 'highbrow' way, and hosted by Victoria Coren-Mitchell.

LOL, I went to find a clip as an example and found the episode that Dug is referring to instead. Very enjoyable. :)

OK, I watched the first 10 minutes and the Morporkians win. Yay! :)

The presenter is wearing something shiny. It's very distracting :(
