Trivia

Adam Hills says of his favourite moment on the show, "I mean, the top for me, for me the most iconic Spicks and Specks moment would be a choice of either when we did the Time Warp the episode with Richard O'Brien. I really enjoyed that, because it came out of nowhere, then suddenly you had Alan Brough, and Myf Warhurst as Brad and Janet and Richard Gill - God rest his soul - and then you had Richard O'Brien down the front singing Rocky Horror, and then at the end all stripped down fishnet stockings."

The best quiz show on TV ...
11 April 2007 | by mazunderscoreSee all my reviews

There's something so comforting about Spicks and Specks, I'm not sure exactly what it is, but you always know what you're going to get with it. You know you're always going to laugh and you're always going to learn something. And I used to love nothing more than cuddling up on the couch every Wednesday night with my boy friend, watching this show and laughing so hard that it hurt.

It's always informative, original, clever and most of all, it's dam FUNNY! Adam Hills is just great as the host (probably the best and most down-to-earth quiz show host in Australia), and the two Team Captains Myf Warhurst and Alan Borough are equally funny and indeed, VERY knowledgeable about music.

Ross Noble, Frank Woodley, Colin Lane and Hamish Blake are my four favorite frequent panelists, but of course there have been many, many other amazingly memorable ones.

I just adore this show and I very much admire Myf and Alan and all the guests who can get some of these VERY hard questions right, as I'm shocking at it! :)
