What is Michael Barrymore famous for? Manhandling old ladies on gameshows, saying "awight" and nothing else. Nothing. Stop trying to think of things. There isn't anything. Especially nothing controversial.

"Ranger... Barbarian... Magician... Thief... Cavalier... and Acrobat!"
Mark and Martyn revisit the first episode of W4B by rewatching the first episode of Dungeons and Dragons again. Reliving all the fun and adventure of a group of abandoned teenagers hampered in their quest to get home by a small mewling unicorn. For a second time. It's just as good as it sounded before.

It's all been building to this - the episode where Mark's countdown to play the episode will also be the title of the show we're watching.

Also we've now done a hundred episodes, and we're marking the occasion with a rubbish gameshow for some reason. why did so many old gameshows have weird animated mascots? And who do you think would win in a fight between Bully from Bullseye, Dusty Bin from 3-2-1 or Mr Chips from Catchphrase? Send your answers
to us via twitter with the hastag #gameshowmascotrumble and reinstate my faith that there's a point to writing these show notes.

100 episodes. Party popper sound effect.
