University Challenge
I got 170 last night, or maybe 145 if I'm very strict about answering before the teams rather than just knowing it.
Not too bad, anyway.

You're allowed to get bonuses whether or not you got the starter - you assume somebody else on your team got the starter. This does make it a bit easier to rack up a high score.

Ooh, has it started again? I thought the next series wasn't until September.

They shifted the filming dates because of the 'must be a student during all the filming' rule re-emphasis (following last year's kerfuffle), so now they film earlier and thus can show it earlier.

' you assume somebody else on your team got the starter'

...so do you pick a team as well, or can you answer bonuses from either team?

You can answer bonuses from either team, on the basis that since you're not as clever as them you need a bit of help.
OK one or two people reading this are be good enough to actually be on UC, but not me.

I'm going to claim 135, fairly loosely scored, less about 120 in would-have-been minus-10s.

The fact that my score is that far from zero probably indicates that the questions are getting easier than they used to be, particularly towards the end of the episode - and also in the third bonus question in a set.
