Summary Kapow! Sock! Crunch! What have Batman-style graphics and sound effects got to do with a game show about words? Gasp as our dynamic duos, the Ducks of War (Felicity Ward and Heath Franklin) and Roget's Ramjets (Robyn Butler and Rob Carlton) wrestle with villains including Mr Either/Or, The Hieroglyphic and Moment-O-Truth Man! Thrill as our host, Andrew Denton, has more fun than his doctor says he's allowed to! Shake your head in amazement at a superhero called Popeman, the world's most inappropriate sports teams and the most amazing Thought Grenade moment yet! 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". PRODUCTION DETAILS: ABC Executive Producer is Sophia Zachariou, Executive Producer is Andrew Denton, Series Producer is Jon Casimir.
