  • Retroactive Recognition:
    • The 1989 series was the first to feature the "deliberate continuity errors" Observation round, and the sketches starred a young Steve Coogan, then most well-known as a standup comedian/impressionist and voice actor on Spitting Image, with the debut of his most famous comic creation, vain but inept and sociopathic broadcaster Alan Partridge, still two years away.
    • In the 1989 series, one of the contestants in the first heat of Group B was Jim Shekhdar, who went on to become the first person to successfully complete a solo, unassisted, non-stop row across the Pacific Ocean between June 2000 and March 2001.note

First messing with the formula and introducing a co-host with the 1995 series (basically trying to turn it into a clone of another ITV agility game, Gladiators), and later by the omission of the Response round in the 2009 revival. And then again by removing Intelligence in 2010.

How well does it match the trope?
