The British Game Show Like No Other!

Since 2009, Pointless has incentivised the British public to the retain as much relevant (and completely irrelevant) information as they can. All for the hopes of answering the allusive pointless answer.

From an outsiders perspective, the Pointless formula does seem like an unlikely ratings hit. The prize money is low and the tone is completely casual for the most part.  

Yet, after well over a thousand episodes and plenty of celebrity and Christmas specials, the unusual popularity of Pointless looks set to continue on forever. The show's constant success can be attributed to the way the hosts present the show - a perfect combination of intelligence and gentleness.

There's certainly few sweaty palms or reasons for anxiety when streaming this British game show. The Pointless formula makes for a relaxing and enjoyable affair who wish to causally partake throughout its 45 minute broadcast.
