Fastest Finger First Episode 7: New Rivals, New Brothers, New Buzzers?


Review Episode 7:

This was interesting in that it felt like lots happened during the episode and you could list off a lot of stuff, but in terms of moving the plot forward we started with them preparing for the regular meet and we end with them still in preparation for the regular meet. Points for not letting an episode with almost zero plot progression drag and a lot of that has to do with the different character interactions.


At the same time though, I just kept kind of wanting them to move this along a bit. As much fun as the quizzes have been, and learning new facts, and watching the characters stumble their way toward being competitive, as a series the show is leaving a lot of room for improvement. We get small hints at character development and relationship building but these haven’t amounted to a lot yet so it is hard to know if the payoff will ultimately be enough to carry the show to its conclusion.


Still, there are worse ways I could spend twenty minutes of my week than catching the next episode of a show that isn’t exactly brilliant but has managed to remain pretty even in its delivery throughout the season.

Thanks for reading.

  1. I was getting a little bored at the start of episode, well not start, more at the announcements of rule and stuff. The pair quizzes were certainly more interesting, comared to the normal quiz bowl. I wonder what that goth character’s deal is? They look like they want to create problems, but some things dramatic like that doesn’t make sense.

  2. I laughed when the brother-out-of-nowhere was introduced. I knew that he would be jaded toward quiz bowl when he was introduced too. It was a cliché but I still enjoyed the episode. Feels like we are building for something, just not sure what exactly. Not too many episodes left, so hopefully it can wrap most things up and not bait for a sequel we probably won’t get.
