Man & Beast with Martin Clunes - Shooting Stars (TV series) - Netflix
Shooting Stars was a British television comedy panel game broadcast on BBC Two as a pilot in 1993, then as three full series from 1995 to 1997, then on BBC Choice from January to December 2002 with two series before returning to BBC Two for another three series from 2008 until its cancellation in 2011. Created and hosted by double-act Vic Reeves and Bob Mortimer, it uses the panel show format but with the comedians' often slapstick, surreal and anarchic humour does not rely on rules in order to function, with the pair apparently ignoring existing rules or inventing new ones as and when the mood takes them.
Man & Beast with Martin Clunes - Format - Netflix
The basic format of the show is that of a conventional panel game. The hosts (Reeves and Mortimer) ask questions of the two teams with points awarded for “correct” answers; however, scoring is largely arbitrary. Each episode is produced by editing together excerpts of a longer session. Rounds include “true or false”, the film clip round, the impressions round and “The Dove from Above” In the impressions round, contestants have to guess what song Vic Reeves is singing (incomprehensibly) “in the club style”.
