In this Broadcast Award-winning, BAFTA and Emmy Award-nominated entertainment show, Taskmaster tyrant Greg Davies (Man Down, Cuckoo), with the help of his loyal assistant Alex Horne (The Horne Section and the show’s creator), sets out to test the wiles, wit and wisdom of five hyper-competitive comedians.
Comedians that have risked life, limb, and dignity in the hope of making the Taskmaster proud so far include: Frank Skinner (The Frank Skinner Show), Mel Giedroyc (The Great British Bake Off), Romesh Ranganathan (Asian Provocateur), Hugh Dennis (Outnumbered), Sally Phillips (Bridget Jones’ Diary), Rose Matafeo (Edinburgh Comedy Award Winner 2018), and Russell Howard (The Russell Howard Hour). Unaware of what awaits them in each wax-sealed envelope, only one competitor can become the victorious owner of His Royal Task-ness’ golden head and be crowned the next Taskmaster Champion.

  • If you're going to launch the best TV show Britain has to offer in the States, why would you start with the worst series?

    CrevulusCrevulusMåned siden
  • All episodes of the CW series are available for free with ads on the free app CW Seed. This show was never going to make it in the states, especially without any context about why the Taskmaster’s character and Alex’s are funny. It’s fun to watch the first episode just to see all the clues they missed about why not enough Americans would get this without back story to keep it on tv. But it’s a treasure. So please go download the app and watch it there if they don’t upload it here.

  • Show was already canceled in the US after 2 episodes. The mistake was starting on Season 8 and the Sunday night 9pm timeslot was really bad. Not to mention a very aggressive censored version.

    • Me, too, but at least there's very little reason to worry about them not completing the NOworld run, now. Plus, hopefully it will have got the attention of a number of potential American fans who can now discover it here and watch from the beginning.

I've had people I was rooting for, 2nd choices and even a couple I was rooting against. While I'm sure some of the others will grow on me, the only one I've seen before is Lou Sanders.

    • Galactic yes but sort of no as they don’t check it similar to the smoking law in the uk where you can be sixteen to smoke but 18 to buy police can question smokers as to how old they are but never do, basically it’s a law that isn’t worth its own time as the person isn’t doing enough wrong to provoke enquiry due to the vast scale in people breaking that law

    • @Zarabada nope. The license is needed for all TV. Signing up to tvplay even asks you if you have one.

      GalacticGalactic2 måneder siden
    • @Galactic Actually, you can watch content on the UKTV Play app (for series up to 9) and the All4 app (for series 10 onwards) without a TV licence. You only need a licence to watch TV or BBC iPlayer. The apps from the BBC's rival stations are perfectly legal. Just make sure you are watching a catalogue show through the Apps. If they have a live TV stream, that will be illegal to watch.

    • @Cricket England this is a newer show, it just ended a couple years ago, but the middle staring Patricia Heaton is fantastic too. If you want an idea of what average life is like in America thats probably the show that captures it the best.

      Demetreas AndrewsDemetreas Andrews2 måneder siden
    • @Cricket England Alex Horne did bring it to America, from the little bit I've seen it was pretty bad. American studios like to change british tv a lot when they bring it over here and then wonder why no one likes it. I don't know why they keep doing that. If you liked Cheers, did you ever watch the spin off Frasier? I think that is one of the best sit-coms of all time. At least the first few seasons. It kind of drags the longer its on.

      Demetreas AndrewsDemetreas Andrews2 måneder siden
    • Demetreas Andrews well it a good job they have taken the British series rather that the usual American way of ruining it by trying to Americanise the show and make their own After all they ruined Fawlty Towers three times (Snavleys, Amanda’s by the Sea and Payne), Red Dwarf, Life in Mars and Dads Army In my view America only ever really made 4 really great comedy series (MASH, Cheers, Happy Days and Sindfeld)

      Cricket EnglandCricket England2 måneder siden
    • Its a national channel. Americans are starting to know who british comedians more. My mom for instance never watched british tv, but because of Facebook knows who Greg Davis is and has come to love him. She now watches Graham Norton everyday. The Great British Bakeoff has become pretty popular here too. I've watched british tv for years now and know who most of the people have been. Ive been showing my family and friends this series (most who don't know who these people are) and they really enjoy it. I dont think you have to know who the person is beforehand to enjoy the show.

    • It wasn't just lacking Greg, it was also cut down in length and undergone numerous other changes, including foregoing prize tasks for what essentially was not very imaginative, dragged through the whole series, singular prize task that wasn't even judged. I'm sure Greg could have still saved it, but it would have been an inferior show even then. I don't remember if I watched it through, so take all I just said with a grain of salt.
