Summary This week on Randling, the heat is on as the finals series kicks off. It's a sudden death match between two teams with long and noble histories, the Bette Davis Cup Squad and the Fitzroy Fireballs. See David Marr and Jonathan Biggins go 'mano e mano' with Anthony Morgan and Dave O'Neil. Each team has all the usual tools in its kitbag, plus a finals-only Powerplay - the chance to double its points in the game of its choice. Dave's Vichy French accent is worth looking out for as well as some ridiculous rock climbing routes, Korean toilet pigs and the phrase "It's just another dead junkie!" 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". Mostly, Randling is a show where brilliant performers can come to play. And that's play for fun as well as play to win. It's a half hour filled with insight and insults, brilliance and bullshit. We guarantee every episode of will leave you at least 1% smarter and 100% happier.
