Summary This week on Randling it's an Ultimate Braincell Cage Fight as our two most conspicuously educated teams clash. Yes, finally, the match-up every English teacher's been waiting for, The Bette Davis Cup Squad versus The Argopelters. For your entertainment, Jonathan Biggins and David Marr take on Chris Taylor and Jennifer Byrne in a knock-em-down, drag-em-out contest. Here are just a few things for the eagle-eyed viewer to look out for: the singing debut of David Marr, the phrase 'she vulcanised her nylon underpants', Jonathan Biggins's piratical knowledge and an old blues tune called Ain't Got No Rabbit Dog... Randling, created for ABC1 by Andrew Denton and Jon Casimir, the gentlemen behind The Gruen Transfer, is a game show that hearkens back to the good old days when a point was a point and a team was something worth barracking for. Using sporting competition as inspiration and framework, Randling pits ten amazing teams against each other over 27 rounds of bone-crunching combat. All of it hurtling towards the 2012 Randling Grand Final and the presentation of a trophy which has cost the ABC so much cash that from next year, Four Corners will be Three Corners And A Gap. White-water rafting for the brain, Randling is a show where smart people can be funny and funny people can be smart, where actual knowledge may help you, but just as likely won't. It's a cheeky, surprising show that allows Mr Denton to live up to his hosting motto: "I'm Andrew and I'm not here to help".
