Jack Dee's HelpDesk - 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.
Jack Dee's HelpDesk - Dove from Above - Netflix
“The Dove from Above” is a large prop animal suspended above the contestants merely for the purpose of bearing six key words for further questions. Guests would be prompted to “coo” down the dove. Alternatives to the dove in various series included “The Blue Suitcase” in the pilot, “The Crow From Below”, “The Vest From the West”, Matt Lucas as George Dawes from the Upper Floors," “The Wonderful, Wonderful Car,” “Donald Cox – The Sweaty Fox,” “The Fly From Upon High” and “The Beast From The East.” In the “Dove From Above” round, and subsequent versions of the same round, if a contestant answers incorrectly, Vic shouts “UVAVU” and pulls a silly face. If the contestant chooses a certain, prize-winning option, Vic will pull another silly face and yell “ERANU” The prize is invariably a bizarre and practically useless device. Occasionally, there would be a “Maverick Round” where a guest would have to stand centre stage and represent something “via the medium of dance”, or “The gift of the air guitar” as previously mentioned. They would then be judged by scorekeeper George Dawes (Matt Lucas), who would invariably award them no points.
