Sensational news today as it was revealed that 80’s stellar gameshow ‘Blockbusters’ is due to come back sometime in Autumn 2021.
A picture of the new set was unveiled on Twitter, Instagram, Faceplace and other social media sites for all to peruse with your various eyes, perusing or otherwise. Not a lot was disclosed but you can clearly see the memorable game board showing the letters in the background. There has been a change of colour, a lick of paint if you will, from the traditional yellow and blue colour scheme of the original.
Yes, whilst follow-up versions were released with different presenters on different channels it was decided that nobody really cared about them. A poll last year showed that 87% of the viewers generally couldn’t give a fuck and so a massive two-fingered salute was erected in a warehouse in Coventry.

Sadly since the tragic loss of Bob Holness in 2012 it has meant that ITV Studios has had to recast and scout for a new presenter. The identity is still a closely guarded secret so we will all have to wait until September for the big big big reveal. It will be a big reveal.
Current odds show Gary Wilmot at 20/1, Sara Cox at 10/1 and our very own Smidge Manly at 100/1. I know where my money is going.
Stay tuned for more information.

Smidge should be a shoo-in for this. It’s right up his street. The scope for misunderstandings when someone asks him for a P are just too delightful to even contemplate.
I reckon it would take at least a series for him to understand the rules of the game which will make for solid gold entertainment if you ask me.
A quiz show where the host has to keep asking the contestants what’s going on, and isn’t listening to their replies, is a quiz show is watch.
Why isn’t this happening right now? This should be a thing but it’s not, it’s an un-thing. Someone needs to make this a thing. The more nonsensical things we say about it the more I have to see it with my 4K viewing eyes.

Nice. Smidge in 4K! Just imagine. Confusion, visible more crisply and clearly than ever before.
Ay! Now then. Steady on. Whats all this letters and hexagons nonsense? Has that agent woman got me a job again? I hope its better than that science documentarty she had me doing.
We should have done a science programme about hexagons. They’re easily the most scientific shape.
Smidge, are you sure that’s your hat and not your hair?
Smidge’s hair is grey, so unless he’s having a midlife crisis and had it dyed and coiffed into a quiff, it’s his hat.
We should really get him a hexagonal science hat.
We all go through it. I wouldn’t be surprised if he was hoiking some hair dye for the older generation in Germany or Finland.
He might be, but he’s still wearing a hat. You can even see his hair poking out from underneath it.
Isn’t that his hair dye dripping under the heat of the fluorescent lights in the studio?
