Gem was pointless...

Postby ElectricEel » 14 Mar 2013, 15:20

Yesterday, I walked through my grandparents' living room whilst they were watching a repeat of Pointless when the ultimate category came up and stopped me in my tracks. Members of Blur and Oasis. They showed five pictures of people and asked the contestants to name them. First one: Gaham Coxon. Second one: Gem Archer Third one: Damon Albarn Fourth one: I didn't know (I later found out that this was Alex James) Fifth one: Liam Gallagher
I'm usually rubbigh at this game show but finally I had my time to shine, lol. Anyway, one of the contestants said that Liam was Noel Gallagher. Pfft. But then they said Gem was pointless! No one got Gem! I was shocked, lol. So yes. That's my story.

Ha. Yes. I tend to shine when quiz shows ask about the band. I used to be pretty good with The Simpsons too. My general knowledge is crap.

Really? I never knew. I though they'd throw in hard ones (in the eyes of the public) like Tony or Guigsy or something.

I've only seen an Oasis question once on there, it was the last round and you had to name pointless Oasis top 40 UK hits, unsurprisingly songs like Who Feels Love, Shock Of The Lightning, Outta Time, Falling Down etc were pointless, but so were Lyla and The Importance Of Being Idle :shock:

Guigsy as in GUIGSY and Tony as in Tony McCarol, their first drummer; he only did the whole of Definitely Maybe and Some Might Say, then he got sacked and Alan White took over.
