QI, or Quite Interesting, is a British comedy panel game quiz television show with an impressive history that began with its BBC Four premiere on September 11, 2003. Since then it has been moved around various BBC channels, and is currently broadcast on BBC Two. It`s created by John Lloyd, and the questions are researched by the QI Elves, a team of seven people. QI is presented by Stephen Fry, although this is the last series for Fry, as he`s decided to move on and will be replaced by his old friend, actor, writer and comic Sandi Toksvig for the series N, upcoming in 2016.
The concept of QI is original and easily distinguished from practically any other quiz show in the history of television – the questions posed to the panel of four people (one resident, Alan Davies, and three rotating ones) are so obscure that they are basically unanswerable. Thus the focus of the show shifts towards the genial tangential discussions spun off by the questions, rather than the actual answers. The joy of the witty conversation that the panelists engage in, hilarious questions, the scoring system that is self-confessedly beyond understandable even to the show`s creators, the sparkling presentation by Stephen Fry – all of these are so brilliant that QI has won many awards and enjoyed universal international acclaim.
The issue of the show`s renewal for the next series (series N) is not even on the table – it seems only natural that QI will come out in 2016, an elegant staple of the BBC Two`s schedule. How will the viewers take the departure of beloved Stephen Fry and his replacement by Sandi Toksvig? Will she be able to maintain the naturally delightful atmosphere that is QI`s trademark? Everyone certainly hopes so.
